It’s natural to have honey bees and bumble bees buzzing around in your garden or yard. These bees do a lot of good for our planet. Their pollination of flowers, plants and crops is essential to our environment.

What’s not good is if you notice that these bees – or their destructive cousins, carpenter bees – are making a home near or inside your home. This is especially true if you or someone in your household is allergic to bee stings.

The first step is to identify the type of bees causing your concern.

“Our technician is very helpful and knowledgeable. Another service came to our door last week, and we were happy to tell them we have been with Moyer Pest Control for 15 years and we would not think of switching.”

Pollinator Protection

We make every attempt to properly identity the type of bees we’re called to remove. If the bees are identified as honey or bumble bees, we will not treat and will refer to a local bee keeper to safety move the nest. Read more about how we treat bees below.

Don’t Try This at Home

Bee stings hurt. Multiple bee stings can be deadly. So, please do not attempt to relocate a bee hive or exterminate bees on your own. It may be tempting to try one of the treatments to get rid of bees you found through an internet search but you would also be risking harm to yourself or your family, not to mention possibly destroying much-needed pollinators.

Trust the bee experts

Bee Relocation or Treatments the Moyer Way

Treatment Plan

Honey bees and bumble bees

Because of their beneficial nature, we will work with local beekeepers to relocate these bees outside of and away from your home and property. This is usually done using a bait trap to coax the bees into a box hive for safe relocation.

Carpenter bees

Treatment for carpenter bees can consist of a series of steps, including:

  • Applying a layer of painted or stained wood (or other material the carpenter bees cannot drill through) to deter them. Carpenter bees are not known to drill through treated wood.
  • An application of a chemical spray or dust in each carpenter bee access spot. This will control the bees but their eggs may require additional treatments for complete extermination.
