    Bees Buzzing Around Your Tampa Home or Business? We Can Help

    Most of the time when faced with a bee infestation, the first question you need to address is what species you are dealing with and whether or not the bees are dangerous. People often turn to the use of store-bought products such as various sprays or repellents, without being sure if the insects that are troubling them are in fact bees. Some people often confuse bees with wasps, and buy wasps-repellents that have no effect on bees, and can serve only to aggravate the hive.

    In order to prevent the serious consequences of using pest repellents on bees, you should always call Omega Animal Removal and ask for a Bee Specialist. Honeybees, present all over North America, are incredibly beneficial to our ecosystem and to nature, with their production of honey, beeswax and by pollinating flowers when foraging for food. However, they can also cause thousands of dollars in damages to your home and to your health. Keep in mind that bee allergies are a severe health concern, and should not be treated lightly, regardless of your previous history with bees.

    If the bee colony that resides near your home is that of the Africanized Honeybees, the situation is very different than in the case of the European bees, and you should be extremely careful, and not approach or poke them. Even though the venom of an Africanized honey bee is no more venomous than that of the European Honeybees, given the patterns with which they attack, the injuries are far worse and can even result in death in rare cases. The Africanized Honeybees travel for longer distances from their hives when attacking, and also attack in larger groups. Another important issue that you should definitely keep in mind is that the Africanized Honeybees, when entering a state of frenzy, stay that way for much longer than domesticated bees, and the danger of stinging you is not as temporary as you might think.

    Removing Bee Swarms in Tampa

    Bee swarming is a process conducted by bee colonies in order to divide when they get too large for their current location, and is one of the most studied insect behaviors in the wild. The study of bee swarms have provided scientists with valuable information about the lives of bees and the way they handle all external factors. This information helps us protect bees, and safely remove and relocate them from urban Tampa, Florida areas when necessary.

    Weaker bee colonies do not swarm until they are powerful enough and have a larger population. Swarms usually occur due to overcrowding. Bee colonies can become weak for various reasons, such as starvation, the death of their queen or other external factors.

    The swarming is performed by a group of worker bees, led by the current queen, and it involves the abandonment of the old colony and the search for a new site to construct the new colony. During the swarming process, the queen and the workers, which also act as her protectors, reside on a resting site, while several scouts go in search of a new location. Once this new residence has been established, the group of bees will move in, and begin growing the new colony. Bee swarms can either be primary or secondary. The primary swarm is led by the queen and has a large population of worker bees, while the secondary one is led by a few virgin females, and it is not as numerous as the aforementioned one. Secondary swarms are not as frequent as primary ones.

  • Honeycomb Removal and Bee Control in Florida

    Honeycomb Removal and Bee Control in Florida

    The only proper way to make sure you have completely gotten rid of a bee infestation from your Tampa property is to remove theentire hive and sanitize the premises in order to clear away all the pheromones and wax left behind by the bees. If this action is not done well, the debris will only attract new bees, and your home will quickly be the residence of a new hive. Killing the bees with repellents is useless, as it will not take care of the bee population control issue, and it will not make your home safe to live in, unless the entire hive is removed.

    Conducting the bee removal and bee control process requires the use of adequate gear and top-quality products, but also needs to be accomplished by a well-trained Bee Specialist, who has studied all species of bees, and has a full comprehension of their life, behavior and attack patterns. Contact Omega Animal removal as soon as you realize that your Tampa, Florida home or place of business has been infested with bees. One of our Bee Specialists will come to your property, conduct a full inspection, and advise you as to what needs to be done next, in order to fulfill your bee removal and bee control needs. After you agree on the method, the solution might involve, but is not limited to: tearing down wooden decks, soffits or walls that have been used as a residence by the bees and that need to be replaced in order to fully clean the premises of pheremones.

    Our process comes with a Lifetime Guarantee, so you can rest assured no matter what species is plaguing you, you never have to worry about a repeated offense.
