Bee Gone Already.

Okay bumble bees - your time has come.  Summer is almost over, but many of you are hanging on to our Chicagoland warm weather.  It is time for you to be gone for winter and forever…on our property anyway.  How much do you know about this potentially harmful version of this type of bee?   It would not hurt to ask some specific questions about this insect.

1.  Does it produce honey?
2.  How long does their nest last?
3.  How do I keep bumble bees off of my property in the first place?

4.  What action should I take if I find what I believe to be one of their nests?
5.  How do I specifically identify said nest to be sure that is what it is?

All of these questions are easily answered by the good old internet.  What is not so simple, but is most important, is getting them off your property safely and completely.  At the first sign that these creatures have invaded your home or business don’t just hope they will go away.  Immediately call A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.  We are Chicagoland’s honey bee removal and control experts!

The Bald Faced Hornet.

It sounds like a new Batman villain doesn’t it?  What will the caped crusader do when Gotham is invaded by the Bald Faced Hornet?  Unfortunately, it is not the stuff of comic books.  For Chicagoland this insect is very real and VERY dangerous.  Would you be surprised if we told you that it may be the most dangerous wasp in our entire area?

Here is what to look for around your property.  If you see a large tear-drop looking nest and it is hanging from a tree or from an upper area of your home that is a pretty good sign.  These insects are black and white striped in nature.  And boy is there sting ever painful!  Not to alarm you too much, but their sting may even be life threatening.

We are not talking about just pests here.  It is one thing to have mice, or ants, or just bugs around your property.  You need to take a Bald Faced Hornet infestation very seriously.  If you believe that these creatures have invaded your home or business do not hesitate.  Immediately call A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.  We are Chicagoland’s bee and wasp experts!
