Fox Pest Control’s Boston Area Bee Exterminator Service

Bee season comes every year in Boston Area without fail. It’s important to control bees early so they don’t take over your patio each summer. If you find a nest, it can be dangerous to try to remove it yourself. Having a pest control company take care of your bees is always the safest route. Hire a professional to exterminate them for you. Let Fox Pest Control do the dirty work.

Stinging insects are never fun to have around.

Bees, hornets, and wasps ruin the time you try to spend in your yard,

and when they’re disturbed, they can become extremely aggressive.

Did you know that bees will build their nests

in the eaves of your house and in nearby trees?

Believe it or not, they even build nests in the ground.

So really, the only way to get rid of bees

is to completely remove the hive, and that’s just what we do.

Our technicians are certified in all stinging insect removal methods.

If bees are ruining your time outside,

give us a call, and we’ll send out a licensed, certified technician that same day.

We’ll do a free inspection,

and then we will recommend the right treatment for your home.

with helpful suggestions for keeping those stinging insects away.

Bee Control FAQ

What should I do if I find a honeybee nest on my property?

If your area has problems with honey bees, it’s best to call a professional removal expert with the ability to relocate the bees while minimizing any harm to them and to you. Honeybees are a vital part of our ecosystem and protecting them, and you, is important.

Are bees dangerous?

Most honey bees are not aggressive unless disturbed, although areas in the southern parts of the United States — like Texas, Florida, and California — are seeing increasing numbers of Africanized honey bees, which are extremely aggressive.

Can honey bees make a nest in my house?

Honey bees generally don’t like to nest in an area that has a lot of traffic from humans or predatory insects. Most honey bees rarely infest homes and prefer to be left alone. The one exception to this is the Africanized honey bee, which is extremely aggressive.

Does Fox Pest Control treat honey bees?

Currently, none of our branches treat honey bees or remove their nests. Since they are a protected species in many states across the country, we rely on honeybee removal experts in many cases.

How do I find a good honey bee removal service?

Find a responsible honey bee removal expert who follows state regulations. Try to preserve the hive and the honey as much as possible.

How do honey bees survive the winter?

As the weather gets colder in the Boston Area, all the bees in the hive gather together and vibrate their abdomens to make warmth. A few bees will die, even in a strong hive, but native bees are well equipped to survive the winter.

How do I tell the difference between a honeybee and a wasp?

Body Color and Shape. Wasps have an elongated abdomen, and, usually, bright colors that stand out. Honey bees have a more muted yellow and black or brown appearance and have a more rounded body shape. 

Hairs. Honey bees also have a large amount of fine hairs on their body and legs, making them look fuzzy. Few wasps have any hairs, and most have none at all.

Legs. Some honey bees that forage for nectar will also have yellowish clumps (pollen baskets) on their hind legs. 

How do bees contribute to the environment?

Besides making delicious honey, honey bees are valuable to the environment because they spread pollen between plants. This keeps plants strong and healthy and allows trees and other fruit-bearing plants to produce delicious food.

What are Africanized honey bees?

Africanized honey bees are the product of an experiment in Brazil where a scientist bred wild African honey bees with European honey bees.

Where are Africanized honey bees located? 

After they were bred, Africanized honeybees were accidentally set loose. They spread throughout South America and have reached the southern United States, from Florida to Texas and California.

Are Africanized Honey Bees dangerous?

Africanized honey bees are extremely dangerous because they have large numbers of stinging bees in a single hive that are all willing to attack with little provocation.

What should I do if I find an Africanized honey bee hive?

If you live in a state with Africanized honey bees, be extremely cautious. In some of our areas, you can call Fox to be directed to a trustworthy Africanized honey bee removal expert.

5-Star Pestimonials

Dalton was great! He was very thorough and had answers to all our questions. We have problems with sweat bees {never heard of them before} swarming all around our new pool making it hard to relax and enjoy it. We tried everything on our own to get rid of them, had another pest control come out and treat, but he couldn’t find the nest so just tried to treat the area, but within the first few minutes of Dalton’s assessment of the property he found the nests in a few areas throughout the property! I was so happy as they say you can’t kill them if you can’t treat the nest so this was HUGE!. Dalton was out on 7/30/2020 and it takes a few days to see the effects so fingers crossed this works and we can finally enjoy our pool without these swarm of bees buzzing all around us. He treated the yard/house for other pest and found a few other problems and took care of them too. Thank you Dalton for being professional and informative, you were very helpful.

Great experience with my first appointment. Daniel, Xavier and Harry were all friendly and professional. They were on time for the appointment, and very helpful in getting the service completed. So far so good, my carpenter bee problem has seemed to disappear within a day. We will see if the bees come back!
