Bees that commonly require bee pest control and bee nest removal in New Hampshire include carpenter bees, bumble bees, and ground bees. Insects such as yellow jackets, wasps and hornets are not bees.
Bee Control Solutions
In April and May, typically as part of our quarterly pest control and protection service, 603 Pest Control experts perform a professional power-spray application of an EPA-registered product to targeted exterior areas of homes and buildings. This proven bee pest control method helps to prevent bees from nesting during the course of the summer.
How to Identify Bee Activity Around Your Home or Property
Bees start becoming active in April and May in New Hampshire, and remain active through October.
They are attracted to the heat of homes and buildings, and make nests on the eaves.
Adult male bees and newly-mated queen bees find shelter to survive the winter, while all others in the colony die off throughout late summer and early fall.
Bees can appear yellow, black, amber or brown, often with stripes on their abdomen, thorax, or both. They have hairs on their bodies that allow them to collect pollen.
Carpenter bees have shiny bodies with a black dot on the top of their thorax, and are quite aggressive.
In general, they range in size from very small to more than an inch and a half long.
Only female bees can sting, since male bees do not have stingers.
Disease and Property Damage that Bees Can Cause
Many bee species can cause allergic reactions that range from pain and swelling to severe shock and swelling of the throat that may require immediate medical attention.
Carpenter bees cause damage by burrowing perfectly round dime or quarter-sized holes into the wood of a home or building, such as in the eaves, fascia boards, siding, deck, and porch.
Some bees live in colonies comprised of a queen, workers and drones. The queen and workers are all female, but only the queen can reproduce. Drones are male. Carpenter bees, however, are more solitary, about an inch in size, and can drill through wood with their barbed, reusable stingers. They lay eggs and build nests in tunnels they create in wood, which can be large networks of tunnels.
