Controlling the Bee Population Early

As spring warms, bee activity will begin to pick up. Paper wasps will begin their nest building activities. We have begun to see the European paper wasp and our native paper wasp on their small, newly constructed, nests this past week. These are the queens working hard to build their nests so that they can start laying eggs.  European paper bee/wasp are not selective about where they build their nests. Almost any site that offers the slightest protection from the rain will work for them. Controlling paper wasps early in the season is much easier than in August, when the wasps are far less tolerant of those that venture close to their nests. We are wrapping up our first round of our Bee & Spider Control Program. If you have any insect issues, please let us know, we would be happy to help.
