Basic characteristics of the Honey Bee:

Honey bees in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York are usually orange and black with a furry body. They build their hives in a hollow space such as a hollow tree or inside the wall of a structure. Honey bees are sometimes seen swarming in large numbers whenever a queen is looking for a new place to call home. The swarm usually lasts 1 to 3 days. They are not aggressive unless they are bothered. An entire colony can survive over the winter if they have the proper protection. They will feed on the honey they’ve stored throughout the warm-weather months.

Time of year they are active:

Honey bees are usually active from April through September, and may swarm during the warmer summer months.

The damage they can do:

The bees themselves do not cause structural damage but their honey attracts other insects and animals, which can become pests. In addition, once the bees are eliminated the honey will drip from their comb and can stain the siding of your home.

You’ll know you have honey bees:

If you see bees entering and exiting from a hole or gap in the house, like a corner or a roof dormer, chances are honey bees have built a nest there. Other clues are a stain on the wall or ceiling, or scratching and buzzing noises inside a wall.

Are they dangerous?

As with any wasp or bee, anyone who is sensitive to stings should avoid areas where honey bees are active. Honey bees are rarely aggressive, however, unless they feel that their hive is threatened.

Why are they in my home?

Most bees don’t like water – they avoid contact with it at all costs. So, they build their hives in secluded spots to stay dry and protected from predators.

Our treatment-and our promise to you:

A bee exterminator in CT, MA, RI, and NY goal is to eliminate your insect problem during our first visit. If you see more activity after the treatment, we will re-treat, free of charge, throughout the warranty period.

Our Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York bee exterminators start with a complete inspection of your home to find the cause of your problem. We then treat the infestation at its source. The entry hole is treated with a dust formulation. Large hives often require drilling small holes into the wall to ensure that enough dust is injected to kill the the entire colony.

What happens after treatment?

There may be some continuing activity around the nest as the workers who weren’t in the nest at the time of treatment return. As they come in contact with the treated areas, they will die. It may take as long as 72 hours for all activity to cease. We recommend that you have a contractor open the wall where the nest was located, since any honey left will begin to melt and possibly cause damage to the walls or ceilings. The honey can also attract other insects.
