How To Keep Bees & Wasps Away

When you think about pests, bees and wasps may not immediately come to mind. In fact, these small flying insects are usually ignored by homeowners. It is likely that you have a lot of bees and wasps around your Virginia Beach home, and you have just never paid them any attention. But what you don’t want are bees and wasps inside your house.

If you see a hive or multiple bees in your home, you need to call pest control professionals immediately. If you live in the Virginia Beach area, call Fox Pest Control. We will take care of your bee and wasp problem to restore your peace of mind.

Why Do I Need to Keep Bees and Wasps Away?

You may be wondering why you need to prevent bees and wasps from coming in the first place. Aren’t bees and wasps good to have around? If you have bumblebees and you have a garden or plants that need pollination, then those are okay to have around. However, in general, you do not want all bees and wasps. And no one wants bees or wasps in your home.

There are always people with allergies to bee or wasp stings. And sometimes this allergy is extremely serious and lead to anaphylactic shock or death. If bees and wasps get into your home, it is even more likely that someone will be stung.

Some species of bees or wasps can cause damage to the structure of your home, such as carpenter bees. They burrow into the wood exterior, which can cause a lot of damage to the wood. To avoid the cost bees or wasps cause in damages, eradicate them quickly.

How to Keep Bees and Wasps Away

Not many people know where to start to rid their home of bees or wasps. There are traps that catch any bees and wasps you don’t want around. Bee and wasp traps can be made DIY or purchased from places like Lowe’s or Amazon.

Other options for keeping bees and wasps away include over-the-counter bug spray. Also, there is some evidence that essential oils like peppermint, clove, geranium, and lemongrass oil can repel bees and wasps. If you don’t like essential oils, you could plant these herbs in your yard to act as a deterrent.

The very best way to keep bees and wasps from making your home their own is to call in the professionals. Pest control services like those offered by Fox Pest Control are essential for protecting your home and family.

Here at Fox Pest Control, we provide same day service for calls before 2 p.m. We will also give you a free, zero-obligation inspection and estimate. Therefore, you don’t have any reason not to call Fox Pets Control if you spot bees or wasps around your home. Let us take care of the problem so that you don’t have to.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
