Often, bee infestations result in unwanted encounters, which are far from pleasant experiences. What’s more, these encounters sometimes turn fatal for the victims of Honey bee attacks. Such a situation is an example of a typical case of Honey Bee Infestation.
You will be astonished to know that honey bee hives were even found in the barrels of guns that were not in use.
These bees usually become active in the spring with the warm weather and flowering of plants. They remain active throughout the summer and into the fall. Cooling temperatures in the fall prompt them to prepare to overwinter. During the winter months, their activity decreases to the point where they are not seen unless on a warm winter day.
The natural habitat of the Bumble Bee continues to disappear due to modernisation by humans, with a significant decline in recent decades. Apex Pest & Property can get bees nests relocated if need be and will only destroy a Bees nest or colony as the very last resort if the risk is considered a serious threat to people.
Several types of social wasps are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of fallen fruit. Some of these wasps may scavenge for dead insects to provide for their young. In many social species, adult male wasps will sometimes visit flowers to obtain nectar to feed on in much the same as honey bees.
Wasps also eat huge numbers of native insects and have been seen killing newly hatched birds.
Nests are commonly located in holes underground, along riverbanks or small hillocks, attached to the side of walls, trees or plants, or underneath floors or eaves of houses. Wasp nests are most easily found on sunny days at dawn or dusk as the low light levels make it easier to spot the wasps flying in and out of their nests.
Wasps will attack and sting humans, particularly if threatened, so care should be taken around wasps and their nests. Wasp nests found in public places (such as in latrines or other commonly used public spaces) should be reported to a pest control service for destruction and removal.
After successfully mating the sperm cells are kept stored in a dormant state until they are needed the following spring. At a certain time of the year (often around autumn), the bulk of the wasp colony dies away, leaving only the young mated queens alive. During this time they leave the nest and find a suitable area to hibernate for the winter. However, in the perfect conditions, these pests can be active during the colder months as well.
