Bees

Common bees in the DC area include bumblebees, carpenter bees, and honey bees. If you see a hive of bees in your yard or outside your business, one small sting may be the least of your problems. Bees can cause panic, painful stings, and even death in people with allergies.

Signs of a bee problem

Bees peak in the region between April and June, but remain active through August. During this time, they become more adventurous and will fly further from the hive in search of food.

We most commonly find bees in hollow trees and immobile wood or metal structures such as playground equipment and roofs. However, bees also nest inside walls of homes, especially older homes that have less insulation between the walls and studs.

Signs of a carpenter bee problem include holes in wood, yellow sawdust, and insect waste, which leaves unique stains on wood.

How do you get rid of bees?

Even if you know where the hive is, it’s important not to disturb bees. This can cause them to release pheromones that will only make your problem worse. At Connor’s, we know the best techniques and methods to remove the hive and your bee problem quickly and effectively.

We eliminate bees at the source with environmentally responsible products that target the bees, but don’t harm your family or pets. To prevent bees from resurfacing in the future, we use exclusion techniques to block entry holes, and we follow up until the bees are gone—guaranteed.
