Our specialized bee removal services give you peace of mind that your bee situation will be dealt with properly.

More than 95 percent of wild bees in the Valley are Africanized honey bees, also known as killer bees. Although the sting of an Africanized honey bee is no more lethal than one from a standard honey bee, these bees got their “killer” nickname because they are known for their aggressive nature; they are easily disturbed and provoked – even by simple noises or vibrations – and they swarm quickly, attack in larger groups and chase their intended target for longer distances, and all of those factors combined can make them deadly.

Cause

There is no “cause” for bee swarms and hives, per se, other than the fact that Africanized honey bees and European honey bees live in Arizona. However, you can determine what type of bee infestation you have by determining a few simple things:

  • Swarms: Swarms are generally a group of bees that cluster around an outdoor area, say near a tree branch or building. Swarms form when about half of an established colony breaks off to start a new colony. The bees stay together in a swarm as they search for a new home. However, swarming bees often aren’t aggressive – even Africanized honey bees – because they don’t yet have a home to protect.
  • Beehives: Beehives are home to bee colonies, where the queen lays eggs and where bees build honeycomb and produce honey. Bees often build their hives outdoors, such as in a hollow tree trunk, but they frequently build hives in attics and spaces between exterior and interior walls, as well as other wall cavities. If you notice large numbers of bees coming and going from one side of your house, or near the eaves or roofline, it is best to call a specialist who can safely check your house or building for an active beehive.

Treatment

Blue Sky Pest Control uses the best, most-effective products on the market for bee control and bee removal services. Depending on the situation, whether the swarm is out in the open or nesting inside a wall or other interior void, we will use the best products for the given situation. We always use environmentally friendly products and, in some situations, we are able to use non-chemical methods to remove the bees.

We will send out an Arizona state licensed pest control technician who is a trained specialist in dealing with Africanized honey bees. Blue Sky is known for the quality of its service technicians and the commitment to doing the job right the first time.

Prevention

There is no way to prevent a swarm from landing on your tree, and there is no guaranteed way to prevent a hive from moving into your home. Bees love dark, secure spaces, like the hollow of a dead tree or the space of a wall cavity. There are, however, a few tricks to discourage bees – killer or otherwise – from moving into your house.

  • Seal the house: Caulk cracks or spaces in walls or along eaves and rooflines.
  • Fill empty spaces: Use foam insulation to fill empty spaces in walls or seal off access to them.
  • Screen vents: Install fine-mesh screening across attic vents or baffling or vents that lead to other areas of the home.
