Bee Removal In Goodyear, AZ

If you live in Goodyear, then you've likely driven by farm land and seen old dirty boxes, haphazardly stacked up on the side of the road.  These are bee boxes that farmers rent to help pollinate their crop and optimize their yield.  It's not uncommon for the hives that inhabit these boxes to either grow too large, causing half the hive to split off, or leave the box entirely.  In the open desert these bees may take over an old hollowed out tree, a small cave or an old burrow of some sort.  When bees are surrounded by thousands of residential homes, they usually end up being the target for a new home to the swarming bees.  There are a couple things a homeowner can do to prevent bees:

  • Eliminate water sources like standing water and leaky plumbing

  • Seal every crack and hole leading to interior walls of the home

These tips will not guarantee a bee hive from claiming your property as its own.  Below is a list of common places bees will commonly inhabit, however it is very situational:

  • Inside walls via the stem wall/foundation

  • Inside walls via the plumbing near the hose spigot

  • Inside attics via holes in the bird block mesh in the eaves

  • Water valve boxes

  • In block walls or fixtures such as bird feeders

If you see bee's going in and out of any of these locations, it is almost guaranteed there is a hive of thousands of bees inside.  It is imperative you do not attempt to treat them yourself, and do not seal up the entrance they are using.  Closing up their entrance/exit hole will confuse and anger the hive, and they will follow any light source as an exit.  This light source usually ends up being the interior of your home, and within hours there will be thousands of bees inside your house.  If you need professional bee removal in Goodyear, give 303 Pest Control a call and we will give you a free estimate.  We will schedule a technician to treat your hive, provide you details on the treatment and note any additional measures that may need to be taken, as well as what to expect.  And of course, our bee removal service is warrantied, guaranteeing you will have complete elimination.
