What Causes Bee Problems?

Many bees, including honey bees and ground bees, are attracted to sweet smells, much like the flowers they pollinate. If you use sweet fragrances outdoors, such as perfumes or candles, or you allow sweet beverages like sodas or sweet foods to go unattended, bees may be attracted to your property. Once there, they can often find a convenient place to nest, such as a wood pile, your home’s attic rafters, or a hole in the exterior leading to a wall cavity. Carpenter bees are especially attracted to wood and can cause significant damage to your home. In dry areas, bees are also drawn to sources of water.

If you have a nest of hornets on your property you should leave them alone if at all possible. If you are thinking of removing the nest, it’s not an easy job. You’d have to:

  • Locate the nest during the day to find the location of its hole
  • Cover  yourself carefully with heavy, protective clothing
  • Apply a do it yourself product that may only make matters worse!

A much easier and safer way to handle the problem is to call Brody Brothers. We have the equipment and the experience that will ensure that your hornet problem is taken care of quickly and properly.

The term “ground bees” can be used to describe any bee (or wasp) that burrows beneath the soil and makes a nest underground. Commonly, ground bees are wasps, bumble bees, miner bees, or sweat bees. Yellowjackets are a form of ground wasp, and they’re aggressive enough to warrant immediate wasp removal. However, other species are generally not aggressive toward humans. Eastern cicada killers can cause damage to lawns, and sometimes can be considered as pests.

The cicada killer has a black abdomen with yellow markings, and the wings have an orange tint. They are around an inch and a half long. The great golden digger wasp is around an inch long, and it’s black and orange in color.

Bumble Bees

The bumblebee has a large and plump appearance and is also fuzzy. This type of insect is black and yellow in color, and they do not tend to sting unless they feel threatened. Contact us for bee removal today!


Prevention & Tips

How To Prevent Bee & Wasps In Maryland

When possible, it is best to avoid causing harm to bees by discouraging them from entering your home in the first place. Several diseases have greatly reduced the bee population, threatening their ability to pollinate our crops consistently. Some things you can do to prevent bee problems and infestations include:

  • Avoid using sweet fragrances, especially outdoors.
  • Dispose of leftover food and drinks after outdoor activities.
  • Clear yard debris that could provide suitable nesting locations.

Most bees will not sting unless threatened, but by discouraging them from loitering around your home, you can greatly reduce the chances of contact.

How Common Is It To Be Allergic To The Stings?

Allergies to bee and wasp stings are much more common than many people realize, and these reactions can be quite serious. Not only can they result in localized swelling, but in some cases, allergic reactions to bee and wasp stings can be systemic in nature. This can result in severe symptoms or even death.

Furthermore, individuals are not necessarily allergic to bees or wasps the first time they get stung, and there are a variety of reasons for this. One reason for this is that there are slight differences in the venom of different insects, and also many people only become allergic to bees and wasps after they have been sensitized to the sting.
