Bees In My Fence

All of a sudden start to notice large bees hovering around your fence? This time a year they are most likely carpenter bees. Think of them as a mom and dad bee, mom takes care of the not yet born young and dad hovers outside of the hole the bee lives in and protects his family. Funny thing is the dad bee doesn't sting, the mom does. What the dad will do is intimidate the heck out of you. Go near the area the carpenter bees are living and you will get chased.

How do you get rid of them? Always use caution. There are pest control supply products you can buy online. The treatment is long and tedious. There are often times many many holes. The other option is hire a pro. The last and most expensive is to simple replace that wooden fence or structure with a plastic fence. I think I soon will be getting a plastic fence. I hate these bees!

Carpenter Bees are a huge problem. The female burrows here way into the wood of the structure and lays next seasons new bees. The holes must be filled in otherwise more bees will use them. Other insects will also find the holes to provide them shelter.

Some great tips here on tackling those annoying bees. My uncle had a bee infest in his garden last year and when I say infest, that's exactly what I mean! His whole garden was covered in them, it was quite scary. Unfortunately, he couldn't buy any products as there was too many and it was quite dangerous! In the end, we had to get some professionals in! There are so many companies for pest control in Bristol to choose, but in the end we went with Chew Valley Pest Control. Thanks again for the tip, we will be sure to keep this in my mind this summer!

Bees can often be compared to wasps but the truth is they both fly and sting but thats where it ends. I deal with swarms of honey bees and although not recommended you can put your hand into the swarm without getting stung. The major trouble with bees is they always tend to find the hardest places to reach them. Some say lucky i say clever. Please look after our bees as they are i huge decline and play such a major role in our eco system.

Carpenter bees can be so difficult to get rid of. Even after filling in holes, painting and possibly vinyl, they have can often come back. Even on my own deck, with a roof, it seems like a constant battle every spring. I feel your pain.
