Bee and wasp populations pose a threat to humans when their hives and nests are located in places where humans live. If you notice individual bees or wasps in your neighbourhood, be on the lookout for bigger groups and swarms.
If you find any hives or nests in your area, be sure to report your sighting to us. We are your most reliable pest control services in Perth. We facilitate safe and efficient bee and wasp control and removal to ensure your neighbourhood stays bug-free.
Methods of bee and wasp removal
You’ll know for sure that you have bees and or wasps when you hear buzzing from within your home. This means the hive or nest is inside. You may even hear louder buzzing sounds at night when all is quiet. Consider this a confirmation of the presence of these little pests in your home or property.
Once you have positively identified that your place is infested with bees and or wasps, call us immediately. We’ll respond to you right away if you want them removed from your Perth property. However, when it comes to getting rid of pests, we treat bees and wasps a little differently.
Since bees are already endangered insects, and are considered friendly pollinators, our goal is their removal from your premises, not extermination. After locating the honey beehive, for example, the next step is relocation. If it is accessible, we then remove the honeybees from your home or property.
With our professional pest control technicians, you can rest assured the beehive is removed carefully, safely, and swiftly out of your property. We then identify a better location for the beehive, away from human presence.
Australia actually has nearly two thousand species of native bees, and we are doing our share to protect them. Bees are essential for the pollination of native plants and crops such as oranges, tomatoes, avocados, strawberries and watermelons. They are also important for our planet’s biodiversity.
However, since bee stings are potentially life-threatening, we treat every single bee removal call very seriously. We ensure that our bee removal experts and pest control technicians respond immediately to bee-related emergencies. They quickly assess the situation, and go to great lengths to safely collect the beehive and move it somewhere far away from human habitation.
Wasp nest removal
Even for wasps, we carefully distinguish between the harmless, friendly pollinator wasps or native flower wasps, and the aggressive European wasp and yellow paper wasps.
Australian paper wasp nest removal is usually pretty straightforward. Their long, tubular nests are easy to locate as they are usually found under eaves and fence capping. However, finding the nests of European wasps is more challenging as they are usually located below-ground.
Not to worry, however. Once European wasps are positively identified, our wasp removal experts are relentless in their pursuit. We will not stop searching until we have successfully removed and destroyed their nests to prevent their larvae from maturing. We use insecticide dust to treat the nests, and apply residual spray in nearby areas or possible habitats to prevent re-infestation.
If you also see hornets (which are very similar to wasps), or stumble upon a nest of hornets, do not attempt to remove it yourself. We cannot stress this enough. Avoid exposing yourself unnecessarily to danger. Instead, give us a call at Pesti Pest Control.
What to do when someone gets stung
If you or someone you know gets stung by a bee, use a clean, sharp tool to quickly remove the stinger. Ice the area and put a bandage, and call for immediate medical help. This is crucial especially if the person who has been bitten is allergic to bee stings.
Be sure to call Pesti Pest Control as well so we can check for beehives (or hornets and wasp nests) in your Perth neighbourhood. This way, we can get rid of beehives, wasp and hornet nests for the safety of everyone.
