Carpenter Bee Removal

Carpenter Bees are large non-stinging bees, almost resembling a Bumble Bee in size and color.  The Carpenter Bee bores holes into wood order to nest and lay its eggs, a destructive habit to your home. To treat for Carpenter Bee removal we need to identify all areas of infestation. Many infested areas can’t be seen but the presence of a yellow sticky excretion may be found along the siding, behind gutters, shutters and/or wood trim. It may make applications difficult, but it is not impossible. Our Carpenter Bees service can be added to the Platinum Home Protection Program.

The Catseye’s Platinum Home Protection Program is an all-in-one program that eliminates bees, wasps, carpenter ants, mice, rats and 33 common crawling insects year around, during your six service visits. Don’t forget to ask about our easy monthly payment plan!

Honey Bee Removal

Honey Bees are the most well-known and economically beneficial insects. For thousands of years humans have used honey, bee larvae and beeswax for consumption and household use. Some people even keep Honey Bees in artificial hives as a hobby or even to make a living selling these by-products.

Honey bees are social creatures, just like ants and termites. Social insects live together in groups, work together in foraging tasks, care for the young, and have a caste system. The three castes of Honey Bees are the drone, the worker and the Queen. The Honey Bee is also a vegetarian; its protein comes from the pollen and its carbohydrates come from the honey in which they make their nectar from.

A honey bee can and will sting. Its sting will cause intense localize pain in the area in which it has attacked; reddening and swelling. This is a normal reaction and under normal circumstances, it does not indicate a serious allergic response. In fact, over time, beekeepers no longer redden or swell when they are stung! An extremely small fraction of people are genuinely allergic to bee stings. When stung, these individuals have breathing difficulty, can become unconsciousness or if the allergic reaction is bad enough, it can lead to death. These persons should carry with them an emergency kit of inject-able epinephrine, available by prescription from a physician.

If you decide to eradicate these insects from your wall void, be prepared to pay for the bee removal services of an experienced Albany pest control professional. To permanently solve the problem, the entire nest and the bees must be removed and the entrance resealed. Just treating the inside of the nest entrance will not work because after it wears away, the cavity and combs can still attract future swarms of bees. Also, if just the bees in a wall are treated but the nest is not removed, the combs are no longer actively being ventilated and wax and honey can melt and stain your interior walls. An experienced professional can expose the nest and remove the bees and comb.
