How to Get Rid of Bees

Rentokil Pest Control strongly recommends you to contact a pest control professionals if you have a bee infestation. Attempting to remove a bee hive by yourself can be dangerous, especially if you or someone in your family is allergic to bee stings.

Identifying a Bee Hive

Note their flight paths; watch the worker bees leave and come back to the nest. This is what can be described as a flight path that most bee workers take.

Wasp Control Solutions

Using our many years of experience in dealing with wasp problems, we have developed our own effective and often unique service solutions that take the pain of dealing with wasp nests out of your hands. 

Wasp pots - Practical, discreet and effective wasp traps that are hung outside to lure wasps away from staff and customers on patios or in gardens. Each trap contains a special fermented solution that is irresistible to wasps and hornets. The clever design means that once the wasps are inside, they will never get out. 

Insect screens - On doors or windows prevent wasps entering your workplace while still allowing natural ventilation. 

Discreet & cost-effective solutions.

Removing Bees from Your Home

  • In addition to the threat of insect stings, bees can also attract secondary insects to invade your home due to the honey they produce.

  • Considering bees are highly beneficial to the environment, they should only be controlled when they pose a direct threat to your home or family.

  • If a bee hive/nest represents a high risk to humans, pest control professionals should be contacted to remove the bees.

  • Rentokil will only destroy a bee nest or colony if it is considered a threat to people. When possible, we will try to find a beekeeper to remove the hive.

Identifying a Wasp Nest

  • Wasps make their nests from chewed wood pulp and saliva, giving them distinctive papery walls. Nests are usually built in sheltered spots with easy access to the outside. You can often find wasp nests in wall cavities, roof spaces, under eaves, in bird boxes, sheds or garages.

  • To locate a nest, carefully watch the flight path of the returning wasps.

How to Get Rid of Wasps

The most effective way to get rid of wasps or hornets is to treat the main cause of the problem – the nest. Removing a nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest and young. To reduce the risk of stings to you and your family, arrange for a professional wasp nest treatment. This effective solution will eliminate the wasps and keep you safe from the threat of stings.

Bees are less aggressive than wasps and much less likely to sting. Furthermore, since bees are highly beneficial to the environment and some species are under threat, bees should not be killed and nests should be left undisturbed whenever possible. If a bee nest represents a high risk (such as a nest in the home or a hospital or near those who are allergic to bee stings), the nest can be moved to a safe area. Rentokil will only destroy a bee nest or colony if it is considered a threat to people.
