Bees, Wasps & Hornet Control
While bees, wasps & hornets are all stinging insects, they have numerous key differences. All of them are visually different and their choice of nesting areas are often different. However, when they build their colonies inside our premise, they often present a similar danger of harmful stings.
Only honeybees make honey.
All worker bees are female.
To produce a kilogram of honey, bees fly the equivalent of three times around the world in air miles.
A Queen Bee can produce 2,000 eggs a day. Fertilised eggs become females and unfertilised eggs become males, with the help of pheromones.
Wasps hunt and eat almost every insect pest that harms crops.
Wasps can create their own paper to build their nests with by chewing and spitting out pieces of bark.
Wasps can be found everywhere except for Antarctica.
Wasps can recognize another wasp by identifying the individual from their unique facial patterns.
Bees are winged insects closely related to wasps and ants, feed exclusively on sugary nectar and protein-rich pollen found in flowering plants, unlike the carnivorous wasps from which they evolved.
Famous for their critical role in pollination, it is estimated that almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on animal pollination. When a bee enters a flower to feed on nectar and gather pollen, some of the pollen sticks to its body. Moving onto the next flower, it deposits some of that pollen, resulting in fertilization, allowing the plant to reproduce and to generate the fruits and seeds so many other wildlife species rely on as a food source.
As an insect, a bee’s body is divided into three parts: a head with two antennae, a thorax with six legs, and an abdomen. There are branched hairs somewhere on their bodies and two pairs of wings. There are over 20,000 bee species worldwide, including the honey bee, which originated in Eurasia and has been imported around the globe as a domesticated species.
Only female bees sting but do so when they feel threatened, especially when their hives are filled with honey and larvae that require protection.
WASPS/ HORNETS' FACTS
Wasps and hornets have hairless bodies with their main differences in colour & size. Wasp are about 1/3 inch to 1 inch while hornets are larger. In terms of colours, wasps have black & yellow rings while hornets black & white rings. Unlike bees that pollinate plants which are beneficial to humans, most wasps and hornets do not and instead help out by eating other insects.
When threatened, both species sting and can be dangerous to those allergic to their venom. Unlike bees that die after they sting, wasps & hornets do not and thus can inflict more pain with their multiple stings.
INTEGRATED BEES/WASPS/HORNETS MANAGEMENT
INSPECT & DETECT
A thorough site survey is carried out by our experienced bees/wasps/hornets team to identify location of hives, taking note of safety concerns, such as height restrictions, surrounding neighbors, etc to remove them.
After correct identification of species and any work-at-height requirements that requires Mobile Elevated Working Platform (MEWP), a customized plan is formulated based on your situation for the most suitable type of treatment ranging from gassing, residual spray or direct misting before removal of hives.
EXECUTE & TREATMENT
Our highly skilled & certified bees/wasps/hornets team will plan & execute treatments while taking into safety, health & your environment. With our focus on safe & green pesticides and licensed Mobile Elevated Working Platform (MEWP) operators, you can be assured of safe removal of hives regardless of locations.
ADVICE ON PREVENTION
Any structure issues such as entry/access points into roof that allow formation of new hives or trimming/ changing of landscape plants will be highlighted to achieve long-term prevention.
EVALUTE & MONITOR
Detailed digital reporting for you to track the treatment conducted. For contract customers, regular checks are conducted to monitor and highlight if any new hives are forming or landscape plants which attract them.
