Bees!!

You've come to the right place. We specialize in all kinds of bee, wasp, yellow-jacket and ground bees hive removal.

Not all bees are bad. These magnificent insects are nature’s greatest pollinators and deserve respect. But sometimes bees and wasps choose to make their beehive in the wrong place. Bees and wasps can be aggressively territorial over their hive and will protect it with their lives. If you have a beehive or around your home, you, or your pets and children could be in trouble. This is especially dangerous if you or a loved one has an allergy to the poison in bee stings.

Bee Population

Sadly, over the past 15 years, colonies of bees have been disappearing, and the reason remains unknown. Referred to as ‘colony collapse disorder’, billions of Honey bees across the world are leaving their hives, never to return. In some regions, up to 90% of bees have disappeared! natgeokids.com

About Bees

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination and, in the case of the best-known bee species, the European honey bee, for producing honey and beeswax. Some species including honey bees, bumble bees, and stingless bees live socially in colonies. Bees are adapted for feeding on nectar and pollen, the former primarily as an energy source and the latter primarily for protein and other nutrients. Most pollen is used as food for larvae. Bee pollination is important both ecologically and commercially; the decline in wild bees has increased the value of pollination by commercially managed hives of honey bees.

Common bees found in Michigan are the American Bumble Bee, the Carpenter Bee, Honey Bee and various species of ground and sweat bees. Most species of bees in West Michigan are non aggressive, but will sting if they feel the hive is threatened. Bee stings do inject the victim with a small amount of poison, and in many cases, the bees will lose their stinger in your skin. For most people, this poison cause minor pain, irritation and swelling. There are a number of home remedies that can be used to ease the pain and draw out the stingers. A small number of people may experience serious, life-threatening allergic reactions. Symptoms of an allergic reaction are severe swelling of the face, lips or throat, breathing difficulties, nausea or vomiting and more…

About Wasps

While the vast majority of wasps play no role in pollination, a few species can effectively transport pollen and pollinate several plant species. Since wasps generally do not have a fur-like covering of soft hairs and a special body part for pollen storage as some bees do, pollen does not stick to them well. The most commonly known wasps, such as yellow jackets and hornets live together in a nest with an egg-laying queen and non-reproducing workers. Many of the solitary wasps are parasitoidal, meaning that they raise their young by laying eggs on or in other insects (any life stage from egg to adult). Unlike true parasites, the wasp larvae eventually kill their hosts. Solitary wasps parasitize almost every pest insect, making wasps valuable in horticulture for biological pest control of species such as whitefly in tomatoes and other crops.

There are many different wasps found in Michigan, but the most common are the Hornet and Yellow Jacket. wasps are considered pests when they become excessively common, or nest close to buildings. People are most often stung in late summer, when wasp colonies stop breeding new workers; the existing workers search for sugary foods and are more likely to come into contact with humans; if people then respond aggressively, the wasps sting. Wasp nests made in or near houses, such as in roof spaces, can present a danger as the wasps may sting if people come close to them. Stings are usually painful rather than dangerous, but in rare cases, people may suffer life-threatening allergic reactions. Symptoms of an allergic reaction are severe swelling of the face, lips or throat, breathing difficulties, nausea or vomiting and more…
