We are Long Island, New York bee removal specialists and know the difference between all of the stinging species shown above, but do you?
Sure we can exterminate all of the bees shown above, but one of these species is vital to our own ecosystem and our own survival.
The Honey Bee is responsible for most of the crops we enjoy in our supermarkets and without the honey bee and their pollination; the United States would quickly be reduced back to a third world country. We enjoy all of our abundant food sources now, but things are changing quickly. The quantity of our food sources are due to the applied use of beekeeping in modern agriculture today as the key pollinator of all of our crops. Without the honey bee, we would all be eating rice, wheat, fish, potatoes and items like strawberries, cantelopes, green beans, watermelons and grapes would be in such short supply; no one, but the very rich would be able to afford these crops and other items.
Sure our exterminators can just kill the bees but we do offer live honey bee removal as part of our bee control services. Rather than hiring just any pest control company to exterminate your bees, hire DQ Pest Control to remove them. Whenever possible, DQ Pest Control puts these honey bees back into the hands of beekeepers, or we raise them as beekeepers ourselves in Nassau County, Long Island, New York.
Help DQ Pest Control help the environment and save the honey bees, by not asking pest control companies to exterminate them, or attempting to exterminate the bees yourself. Typically, a honey bee hive will contain twenty-five to one hundred pounds of honey. Following the removal of the honey bees, the removal of the honey comb from the walls of your home is an essential component in the prevention of future problems with bees and the prevention of a rodent and bug infestation. Unlike other exterminating companies, DQ Pest Control will remove the honey comb to prevent future pest control problems.
Hornets and yellow-jackets are social wasps. Hornets are the largest of the social wasps. Social wasps will build their nests in trees, underground, attics, porches, sheds, garages and in the eaves of your home. Of all of the stinging insects, wasps are the most dangerous. Unlike honey bees, wasps can sting their victims repeatedly, because their stinger is not barbed like that of a honey bee. The venom of a wasp can be fatal to those who are allergic to it. Attacks from stinging insects can also be dangerous to babies, young children and the elderly. Bee removal and wasp extermination services from DQ Pest Control can prevent painful and dangerous stinging attacks from bees and wasps on Long Island, New York.

Bee Hive Removal Prices
Bees are both pests and a necessity, making the decision to remove them a somewhat complicated one. As pollinators, bees are responsible for the reproduction of many of the foods that we consume. However, bee stings are painful and in some cases can even be fatal. If a honey bee hive on your property is causing you problems, extermination isn’t the only solution. In may cases, it may be possible—as well as cheaper—to seek the services of a honey beekeeper that will remove and relocate the honey bee hive.
Honey Bee Removal
Keep the following points in mind when considering a pro for honey bee removal:
Bee Relocation vs. Bee Extermination
Exterminating honey bees that are on your property may be the easiest way to get rid of a bee hive. However, honey bee extermination may not be the best course of action due to Colony Collapse Disorder. It is relatively easy to remove a swarm of honey bees, but a lot of work to remove an established colony of bees from a cavity.
Bee Swarms vs. Bee Hives
A bee hive is an established home where bees nest, rear their young, and store food. A bee swarm is a mass of bees in search of a new home. Bee swarms may appear frightening but a swarm of honey bees are actually more docile than nesting bees. Swarming is the bee's method of colony reproduction. When a new queen bee is born, the old queen and approximately half of the worker bees leave the hive and seek out a new home. Honey bee swarms usually occur in the Spring.
Bee Proofing and Preventing Future Bee Infestations
Bees can fit through openings as small as 1/8”. Common locations where bees build hives include trees, shrubs, bird houses, sheds, soffits, A/C units, exhaust events and behind brickwork. Bee proofing is accomplished by sealing up potential entry points, which can prevent the establishment of a bee hive.
Once a bee hive has been removed steps should also be taken to ensure that bees don’t move back into the space, other pests aren’t attracted to remaining hive materials, and organic matter doesn’t damage the structure. In addition to sealing cavities this means removing honey, dead bees, eggs, and wax as well as cleaning and deodorizing to mask the bee pheromones.
Eliminating a bee hive sometimes necessitates removing building materials (framing, insulation, stucco, drywall, paint, etc.). Expect to pay an additional fee for repairs and reconstruction. DQ Pest Control can refer you to a licensed contractor, or you may hire your own contractor.
Bee Removal / Wasp Extermination Costs
A basic wasp nest removal, or hornet nest removal from the outside of a building, or residence will typically be a lot less costly to remove, then the removal of honey bees from a wall, or ceiling.
If honey bees inhabit your home, or business, there will be repair costs to fix the holes that were cut in the wall, or ceiling to remove them.
Factors that affect the cost of Long Island bee removal and wasp removal, include the size and location of the hive, the type of bee, or wasp and the accessibility of the hive.
