Get Bees & Flying Bugs at Their Source—Count on Us for Beehive Removal in Arizona

Bees

bee hiveMost species of bees are very social insects. As a result, colonies of a queen bee, female worker bees, and males assemble in masses at beehives. The queen lays the eggs, which she will do for her lifetime. Her lifespan reaches two to three years.

The male bees are tasked with fertilization of the queen. Fertilizing the queen causes male workers to die. Female worker bees are tasked to labor and protect the hive. As a result, they have a short life span of around 6 weeks. Our beehive removal in Arizona can safely eliminate hives threatening your home.

Appearance and Life Cycle

Bees can be black or brown with red, yellow lustrous blue stripes. This insect species has a population in the tens of thousands. Bees are typically hairy, which helps them collect pollen. Female workers will normally have bristles on their hind legs for pollen collection.

Other plants are pollinated when bees land on them. All bees drink or sip nectar with a tongue-like appendage, which is used for energy. Bees also contain an organ which converts this nectar into honey. The pollen collected helps provide the colony with needed food to increase survival.

Hornets

Stinging imageHornets are similar to yellow jackets. The number of hornet species is far less than that of bees, only around 20 species. Hornets are known for their painful stings, but are very important in the control of other insects that could become pest problems.

The social aspect of these bugs makes them very aggressive in the defense of their nest, which is composed of a paper substance derived from saliva and pulp. They can be found within treetops, roof overhangs, or other covered areas. Contact us for any wasp nest removal in Arizona.

Appearance and Life Cycle

Hornets are usually yellow and brown in color. They measure in length about 1.5 inches long.
Hornets lay roughly 50 eggs, which take 5–8 days to hatch. In the next two weeks the larvae undergoes its five stages to become an adult.

Wasps

Wasps usually have two pair of wings with a distinct pinched waist. Their colors range from black to blues to greens and vary in size. Social and solitary insects, wasps in colonies will rely heavily on the female to perform needed duties within the nest.

Interesting information about solitary wasps is when they lay their eggs they will leave them alone to hatch. Like bees and hornets, wasps will sting when threatened. However, unlike some bees, these insects can sting multiple times. Protect your family from getting stung with wasp nest removal in Arizona.

Appearance and Life Cycle

Later in the summer, some species of wasp queens will produce unfertilized eggs, which hatch as males. These wasps will then fertilize the soon-to-be queens for the following year, which will hibernate to protect themselves. Next spring, the queen will begin to lay eggs, which will become the female workers.

Like hornets, wasps support humans. These insects can be used as parasites or predators to help control other possible bug infestations. However, like bees and hornets, wasps can be dangerous to your home and family and may need to be removed.

Yellow Jackets

The name of this insect is due to their yellow and black bodies. They are often mistaken as bees, expect for the lack of hair.

Not only do yellow jackets pollinate, but they also scavenge for meat, fish, and substances that contain sugar, which makes them a very common nuisance. These bugs are commonly ground nesters.

All workers are sterile females. Males appear later in the summer. Once these males hatch, they will mate with the females who will become the following year’s queens. When winter comes, or colder temperatures appear, the female workers and males will die.

Aggressive defenders of their colonies, yellow jackets are not quick with the stinger. Like most wasps, these bugs can sting multiply times. Avoid getting stung by a yellow jacket; call us for yellow jacket removal and wasp nest removal in Arizona.

Appearance and Life Cycle

Yellow jackets can measure 10 to 16 mm in length. They are different from bees because of their thinner and more defined waists, and their wings are as long as their bodies.

A queen will begin to build a paper nest, where she will lay the first batch of eggs. Once hatched, the queen will feed them until they are ready to pupate and mature. A colony can contain more than 1,000 wasps.

Appearance and Life Cycle

Mud daubers are long, slender wasps about one inch in length. They are black and yellow in color.
Females lay about only 15 eggs in their lifetimes.
