Removal of Honey Bees, Wasps and Hornets in Georgia
Do you need bee, wasp or hornet nest removal in the greater Atlanta area? Urban Wildlife Control has you covered. With the warm weather from March to October Urban WIldlife Control employees take to the field each day to eradicate Atlanta residence bee and wasp issues. Some years, depending on our unpredictable weather its not uncommon for us to receive calls about wasps in the home or chimney in November or February. Our unique set of skills and licenses allow us to provide control over these stinging insects that most other pest control or wildlife removal companies cannot provide.
Our background in wildlife gives our employees the training required to gain access to those hard to reach spots like your roof and chimney. Or we can get into the attic’s far corners to inspect the interior soffit and eaves. Of course, legally, a wildlife control background and license does not allow someone to use pesticides to remove a bee problem. The GA Department of Agriculture requires a commercial pest control license to treat a problem with a pesticide. Urban Wildlife Control is licensed both by the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Natural Resources. Below is a list of the most common stinging insect problems with which Urban Wildlife Control deals:
Carpenter Bee Removal – Often mistaken for the bumble bee, this solitary bee is seen during spring time boring tunnels into wood (fascia boards, fence posts, deck railings, etc.) and laying eggs inside. These bees may also attract unwanted woodpeckers.
Honey Bee Removal – A honey bee in Atlanta is orange and black in color and has a dense coat of feathery hairs on the head and thorax. Their nests can become extremely large, with more than 15,000 workers in some cases. The honey production can ruin your home and attract other unwanted guests. If this insect creates a nest or hive inside your home or office, it must be removed immediately, and the area should then be cleaned and deodorized.
Hornet Removal – Hornets in Georgia are social insects related to wasps. They produce a paper-like nest that occasionally can be built too close to humans. When they become a nuisance, the nest can be removed.
Wasp Removal – Wasps can become a problem when they build a nest inside your home (attic, chimney, soffit, window sill, etc.) and enter your living space.
Yellow Jacket Removal – Similar to the honey bee, this bee is usually yellow and black in color and does not have as much hair on the head and thorax. This insect will nest in wall voids and does not produce honey. Nests can simply be destroyed by an exterminator, but the nest does not need to be physically removed from buildings.
