Although bees may be very helpful to our ecosystem, they are not the types of insects that you want to have around on your own property. If you are tired of having to run inside every time a swarm of bees attacks your outdoor barbeque, or if you want to prevent the possibility of having an allergic reaction to a bee sting, speak to our team at Fischer’s Pest Control. We are devoted to our clients and ready to offer superior bee control services so your backyard can truly belong to you again.
Where Do Bees Tend to Hide?
The first element of bee removal is identifying where the colony or hive is located. In some cases, this can be quite easy to achieve, but in other scenarios it may be very challenging, since bees are known to make their homes everywhere.
Just a few examples of the wide variety of locations bees may live in include:
- Outdoor enclosures like birdbaths, fountains, or mailboxes
- Abandoned cars (in the trunk, seats, hood, or even beneath the engine)
- In the corners of roofs, ceilings, walls, gables, and gutters
- Inside old trees and fallen logs
- Hidden in the grass or amongst tree roots and bushes
Once the hive has been located, it is up to a team of knowledgeable professionals to decide exactly how to handle the bees inside. To keep you and your household safe, our technicians will decide exactly which liquid pesticide, aerosol spray, or dusting treatment should be used to eradicate your bee problem.

Because many people have seen wildlife shows or online videos showing humans “interacting” with bees, they may get the idea that this is something they can handle as well. You would be surprised at just how many incidents there have been with homeowners trying to light a fire to “smoke out” bees, which is highly ineffective and dangerous. Much of this media represents false scenarios with actors or shows professionals with years of training. The tragic result is that DIY homeowners attempting to remove a colony or a honeycomb on their own only end up with lots of stings or bites, and nothing else to show for their endeavors.
The best way to prevent this situation from occurring is by calling knowledgeable specialists to handle the bee problem at your property. You can avoid these traumatic consequences by reaching out to our technicians at Fischer’s Pest Control for dedicated support.
AFRICANIZED HONEY BEE ELIMINATION
Africanized honey bees are a legitimate threat in the Las Vegas area. They are aggressive and can prove deadly. Call a professional bee pest control company immediately if you discover any type of colony on your property to avoid injury.
ELIMINATE THE COLONY
Three methods of control are used to guarantee results: aerosols, liquids, and dusting treatments to flush out and eliminate the colony, preventing future infestations with residual pesticides in the Las Vegas area. Treatments are guaranteed by our bee exterminators for up to 90 days.
REMOVE THE HONEYCOMB
The key to preventing future Las Vegas bee infestations is honeycomb removal. Honeycombs that are treated and not removed carry pheromone scents. This attracts future colonies once the pesticides break down. You should never attempt to remove any bee honeycomb yourself. Contact one of our experienced Las Vegas bee removal technicians for a free evaluation.
CARPENTER BEE PEST CONTROL
Although Las Vegas carpenter bees are not as dangerous as Africanized honey bees, they still pose a threat if left untreated. Also, carpenter bee nests can grow quickly and create structural damage to your home or property. Call our Las Vegas bee and wasp pest control team to schedule a free consultation today!
How do you know if I have Africanized honey bees?
Our trained Las Vegas bee control experts will be able to distinguish between Africanized bees or a standard European honey bee by the behavior of the swarm. Africanized honey bees are more aggressive in nature. However, it’s not always easy to tell the difference without a trained eye. When you see a swarm around your home, stay away from the hive and contact our office as soon as possible.
What should I do if bees come into my home?
If a swarm of bees enters your home, you should call a bee control specialist immediately. Make sure you, your family, and your pets avoid the area and do your best not to disturb the swarm until help arrives. Bees will sting if they feel threatened, so you should move to a safe location until the bees can be taken care of.
Can bees cause damage to my house?
Bee colonies can consist of thousands of bees and can put substantial strain on walls, chimneys, roofs, or other areas of your house where they choose to nest over time. The weight caused by the bees themselves, along with their hive, honeycombs, and waste, can result in a roof caving in, a wall buckling, or other structural damage. If you have a bee problem, contact a pest control expert as soon as possible to avoid damage to your home.
A swarm of bees landed on a tree in my yard. Will they go away on their own?
A swarm of bees are most likely searching for a new place to live because their previous hive was threatened or they simply outgrew it. There is usually too much activity around a home for bees to want to build a hive, but there is always a chance that they will try to nest near your home. However, avoid the urge to kill or trap the bees. If they do not leave after a few hours, it’s time to contact an experienced bee control professional.
How do I know if I have a bee swarm or a bee hive?
A bee swarm is generally smaller than a hive and appears as a dense ball of bees. A swarm will only stay in one place for a few days to a week, while a hive is more permanent. A hive is larger in size with a visible white or yellow honeycomb seen underneath the bees. A hive tends to have more of an oblong shape.
