Bees and wasps can be found on the Sunshine Coast around your home and workplace. It can be quiet distressing seeing bees and wasps flying around as some people are highly allergic to bee stings and wasp stings can be very painful. We do recommend to stay clear of the bees and wasps and try not shoo them away by waving your arms around as this can aggravate them and wasps are known to be aggressive.
Getting Rid of Bees
Bees are not as hostile as wasps and are not considered a pest as bees have an important role in our nature chain. As bees collect nectar and pollen from flowers they spread the pollen from flower to flower, this is called pollination. Pollination allows plants to create seeds which allows them to reproduce. We know everyone wants the ‘circle of life’ to run smoothly however we understand if you don’t want swarms of bees buzzing around your home or workplace. There are many different types of bees, below is a video of Australian native bees.
Unlike the honey bee which has a painful sting the native bees cannot sting and they are a protected species. Ideally it is best to leave them in their natural environment, however if you do want to look at having them removed/relocated Top Choice Pest Control can get you in touch with specialists who can give advice and relocate them.
Getting Rid of Wasps
A wasp sting is sore and nasty. We do not recommend trying to treat a wasp nest on your own, as when disturbing a nest if the wasps feel threatened they can retaliate and can be extremely hostile. A wasp nest can hold thousands of eggs and should be treated with care. It is best to have a wasp nest treated as soon as you notice it before the wasp swarm has a chance to reproduce and increase in numbers. Our technicians can treat and get rid of the wasps and the wasp nests around your home or work place. There are ways you can manage/reduce wasp infestations by keeping an eye out in and around your home and garden for wasp nests. Finding them early and getting rid of them as soon as you see them is best. We often find wasp nests under eaves, in garages and sheds. Wasps can be attracted to what is inside your rubbish bins, it is recommended to keep bins securely sealed and if possible keep your external bins away from your doors and windows.
