Bee Pest Control
While there are more than 20,000 bee species found world wide, the one most commonly seen floating around our yards and gardens are honey bees or the Apis mellifera species. As pollinators, bees are important to agriculture; but that doesn’t mean you want them building a nest in your walls. Bees look for cool, dark and protected places to nest, making your attic and walls ideal. Honey bee nests can ferment over time, attracting other pests or animals and can even cause staining on your walls. Notorious for their painful and itchy sting, bees are also a threat - making DIY nest removal not a good idea. If you’re in need of pest control for bees, Edge is here to help!
Dangers of Bee Stings
For the most part, a bee’s sting is relatively mild. It is painful enough to induce tears in children, but not nearly as painful as the sting of a wasp or yellow jacket. Fortunately, honey bees can only sting their victim once. Most reactions to bee stings are mild - swelling, itching and inflammation. However, many people (particularly the elderly, young children or those who have been previously stung multiple times before) can suffer a deadly allergic reaction called anaphylactic shock. If you or a family member has been stung and you notice any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention immediately:
- Difficulty swallowing or breathing
- Swelling of throat and/or tongue
- Hives and other skin reaction
- Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
- Loss of consciousness
