Bee Information

8th of June, 2022

Normally around this time of year Pest-Master start to receive a high volume of enquiries with regards to bee's and bee's nests.

Under normal circumstances, we do not treat a bee’s nest unless it is causing a threat or risk to public health.
Bees are pollinators, not pest insects and play an important and vital role in pollinating the food we consume. They are not aggressive, in fact docile would be a better description and are only interested in finding flowers. The only time they may become defensive is if something or someone disturbs their nest or they feel under danger or threatened, you are not in danger of being stung if they are left alone and unprovoked. They are around the end of August but dependant on climate, most bees will move on and tend not to return to the same nesting spot the following year.

Bees do not cause structural damage to your property. They use materials already available to make their nests.
Nests are usually active for around 3 months. After this time, the original queen and the workers will die off. If the nest has been successful in rearing new queens, they will leave the nest to mate and then go on to hibernate elsewhere in soil/tree stumps ready to emerge the following season and commence with their own colonies.

Bumblebees never swarm. The likelihood is they are male bees seeking out new queens as they emerge from a nest.
Bees are not a protected species-However they are an endangered one.

If you feel there is a risk to public health and still need help with your nest, please give us a call and we can come out and investigate the issue. A call out fee will apply even if no treatment is conducted by one of our field technicians.
