It can be extremely unsettling to have a swarm of bees show up on your property, or worse, build a nest in the structure of your home. Africanized Honey Bees and other stinging insects can present sting dangers as well as property infestation and damage. If your property has been infested with bees, it is best to call Essential Pest Control for professional Bee Removal.
Africanized Honey Bees
Africanized Honey Bees are by far the largest threat to humans and pets. Killer bees were relocated from Africa to South and Central America where they have migrated northward, reaching the Tucson area in 1991. Africanized Honey Bees are desirable for breeders due to positive characteristics that include assertive mating habits, higher honey production, more frequent swarming and the aggressive defense of their colonies.
However, the aggressive nature of the species has led to them be overwhelming and dominate any Honey Bee or other native species. The aggressiveness of Africanized Honey Bees has also resulted in them being labeled as “Killer Bees” due to their ferocious assault on anyone or anything that threatens their hive. Cases have occurred where hundreds and thousands of bees have ascended on people and animals that died as a result of their stings.
Africanized Bees seek to establish their hives in large void areas that are protected. Small gaps in building construction allow access to wall and ceiling voids that are ideal nesting places for Africanized Honey Bees. Due to the aggressive nature of Africanized Bees, it is important that you have a specialist such as Essential Pest Control provide your bee control.

Carpenter Bees Another type of bee that can cause considerable damage to Arizona homes are Carpenter Bees. These insects, although not aggressive, weaken exposed wood structures in which they bore holes and tunnels to lay eggs. If left untreated, Carpenter Bees can erode the integrity of the wood, leading to expensive repairs down the road.
Paper Wasps This particular species of Wasps tend to feed on nectar, small insects, and are often found around pool water. Paper Wasps can be very aggressive and it is for that reason that you should have a pest control professional perform a wasp removal. Wasps are able to sting multiple times and cause allergic reactions.
