Preparing for Bee, Wasp & Hornet Control Services
When the weather warms up, you will see higher activity in all insects, including bees, hornets, and wasps. These insects can form nests inside your walls, and as the nest enlarges, they may chew through your walls or ceiling, causing them to enter your home or business.
It is possible to encounter bees inside your property in the wintertime. This may occur because they can make nests inside insulation or walls. The nest will become disturbed when the heat is turned on. In such cases, an exterminator will need to locate and treat the nest inside your walls or ceiling. Ignoring a small nest can lead to more significant problems as it will continue to grow throughout the season!
