How does Batzner get rid of honey bees?

Your Batzner pest control professional will come to your property to identify the nesting sites and determine the proper treatment method. Honey bees store honey in their nests, so locating all nesting sites is an extremely important step in the process.

Can I control honey bees myself?

Many homeowners who have tried to remedy the situation end up having greater pest problems. Sealing up the entry point of the nest will agitate the bees and they will look for other exits, including inside your property. If nests are not removed, the wax and honey will melt and rodents and other insects will become attracted to this site. It will also attract honey bees in the future and a nest might be rebuild in the same area.
