Our Bee Removal Services and Guide to Stinging Insects


Nothing can ruin your time outdoors quite like having an ominous insect buzzing around. With summer approaching, you need an action plan in place to protect your family from painful stings. If bees and other stinging insects are making you feel unsafe outside, it’s time to take action and call Four Seasons Exterminating.

Yellow Jackets Extermination: How Four Seasons Exterminating Identifies and Removes Stinging Insects

There are many types of bee hives, nests, ground bees, carpenter bees, hornets, and more. The Stinging Insects are professionals at hiding and protecting their colony. 

Do you need a Bee Swarm Removed? 

Four Seasons Exterminating is your Local Bee Removal and Extermination Service. We are professionals and trained to remove bee hives. 

Are Honey bees declining? Yes!

That is why Four Seasons Exterminating absolutely loves our honeybees. Most honey bee swarms that are observed are in transit and will move after taking a brief rest. On the other hand, when we encounter stinging insects that are a harm, we will remove them and exterminate them. It is critical that you contact a Professional Exterminator near you if you see or think there is a stinging bee threat.

The reasons to exterminate bees vary but may include the following:

  1. Aggressive nature of bees to everyone around them
  2. Risks related to allergies
  3. Fear
  4. The structure is not fully accessible

Myth: Is It Illegal to Kill Bees

The answer is FALSE

People may have told you that you cannot kill bees or Honey Bees. This is false. As much as we might want to save the bees, it is only sometimes practical. The best time to remove bees and have them survive as a swarm is in March, April, and May. During this time, they will have a higher survival rate. But swarms captured after June 1 will need more bees and stores to live through the winter.

When Four Seasons Exterminating is called out for a one-time service call, such as removing a Stinging Insect. Our highly trained staff is fully prepared, dressed from head to toe in safety gear. This is not a job that you can handle on your own safely. A one-time treatment to remove a bee’s nest and eliminate the problem for you is $185; the cost is much less than the risk.  

When comparing honey bees to yellow jackets, they are very similar in size. And they also fold their wings back when they rest. Sometimes the two can be confused. However, honey bees are usually a bit more round and tend not to be in such a hurry. 

Yellow Jackets, on the other hand;

  • Unlike our pollen-loving friends, they prey on other insects and also love human food.
  • They are black and yellow or black and white in color.

The German Yellow Jacket loves residing in enclosed structures. Structures would include places like wall voids, attics, crawlspaces, and cracks or crevices around the exterior of buildings. Their nests can also be found in the ground in places like rodent burrows. 

Pro Tip: Prevent Stinging Insects:

The main spot yellow jackets love to hang out by is the trash! So be sure to keep a lid on your garbage and empty the container often so there is no build-up enticing the yellow jackets. If you suspect you have yellow jacket nests, try to spot where they are coming from so it is easier to kill the source.

Of course, the best treatment for these pests is to call a trained exterminator. Nothing ruins a summer picnic like an infestation of yellow jackets and guests getting stung!

Frequently Asked Questions

Technically yes, but it’s not something we recommend because when a nest is threatened, bees often attack in swarms. If you insist on removing a nest on your own, we recommend that you follow standard safety procedures, use a bee suit, and proceed with caution.

Yes! For roughly 24 hours, you will see foraging bees return to their nest which is no longer there. They may be irritated, so we recommend staying away from the recently treated area until they’re no longer present.

Bees leave behind a scent that attracts other bees to the area. So after you remove a hive, you must clean the area with a strong disinfectant and seal the openings with a caulking compound. The team at Four Seasons Exterminating can handle this entire process for you from start to finish. To schedule your bee removal service, please call 989-352-7777 today!
