Bee & Wasp Control
Reduce the Sting Risk by Calling Ridd Pest Control
Wasps and bees are notorious for one distinct characteristic: their ability to inflict painful stings. For some, these stings take on a whole new level of terror due to a severe allergy to the tiny amount of venom these creatures inject when they do sting a victim. Even a small sting can be life threatening, and that’s why these infestations need to be taken care of swiftly and decisively. However, in the case of bees, they also need to be taken care of humanely and carefully. Bees are critical for our ecosystem, and their disappearance is preventing flowers from blooming and continually producing seeds that allow them to reproduce and spread.

Differences Between Bees & Wasps
Bees and wasps are sometimes confused for one another even though the two are remarkably different. In fact, aside from some color similarities and the ability to sting and fly, bees and wasps are almost completely different from one another. Bees are generally not aggressive and won’t attack unless they feel that their hive is threatened. Instead prefer to simply operate their colony, and they do this by collecting pollen from plants to consume. When a worker bee locates a good source of pollen, they’ll bring other workers to collect it and bring it back to the hive. Once this pollen is processed, it is stored in the hive as honey—nature’s natural sweetener.
Wasps, on the other hand, tend to live in much smaller nests and operate largely independently. They live in smaller nests that can feature up to a dozen or so adult wasps at the absolute largest, with no more than four or five being the most common. Wasps are generally more aggressive and are not afraid to sting if they feel their territory is under threat. This is because wasps survive the stinging action due to their non-barbed stinger. Wasps are also predatory insects, and have been known to eat other bugs (including bees). Adults also eat sugars from flower nectar, honeydew from aphids, and even food waste left in trash cans. This is one reason why wasps love to build their nests under the eaves of our homes.
Bee Colony Relocation
If a beehive has formed on your property, you might not want to completely eliminate it. After all, with bees being such a vital part of our ecosystem, it’s important to make sure colonies survive and thrive. At Ridd Pest Control, we can help you relocate a colony so that you are free from the threat of a sting and the bees continue to live on. This is made possible through experienced bee relocation techniques.
