Bee Control from Fischer Environmental
Serving the Louisiana & Mississippi Gulf Coast For Over 50 Years
Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. Bees often nest in the ground, but can be found above ground around patios, decks, tree crevices, attics, or chimneys.
Bees can be attracted to odors in the environment. It is best not to use perfume, cologne, or scented soaps if you are going into an area of bee and/or wasp activity. Avoid going barefoot in vegetation, especially clover and blooming ground covers. Also avoid wearing brightly colored or patterned clothing if you know bees will be present and wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt.
Bees are aggressive defenders of their nests and will chase invaders for a considerable distance. Stinging incidents often occur when nests of bees are disturbed. If you see insects flying to and from a particular place, avoid it.
The bee sting is one of the most painful types of stings. Bee problems can be prevented through inspection of potential nesting areas and removal of potential harborage materials. Because bees will sting when threatened and their colonies are so large, homeowners are advised not to address the infestation themselves and to contact a pest control professional or experienced beekeeper who can safely remove a nest.
