FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)
I HAVE A NEST ON THE INSIDE OF MY HOUSE. CAN’T I JUST PLUG UP THE ENTRANCE HOLE?
ABSOLUTELY NOT!! Never use bumblebee spray or plug an entrance hole of bees or wasp this will only trap many of them inside. If their entrance is plugged or sprayed, the bees or wasps will look for an alternative exit which often results in them entering your home in large numbers through vents, light fixtures, etc. It should also be noted that yellow jackets can and will chew through the drywall (even plaster) from the site of their nest located in the ceiling or wall cavities. It is essential to avoid plugging or spraying into the entrance holes of bees or wasps. If bees or wasp enter your home don’t hesitate to call A1 Bee Specialists ASAP.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS THE WASP PREVENTION PROGRAM?
WHY DO I SEE WASPS (AND OCCASIONALLY YELLOW JACKETS) INDOORS IN THE SPRING AND FALL?
Due to the climate in South-Eastern Michigan, colonies of yellow jackets, hornets, and bumblebees die in the fall – but before they do, their focus is on the production of new queens, which in many instances can be considerable in number. The queens seek out hibernation sites, and our properties offer them very attractive conditions to overwinter. In the spring when you see them inside your home this reflects the queens emerging from hibernation normally from the attic areas of your home. To combat this problem, homeowners can schedule a Gold, Silver, or Bronze wasp prevention service to minimize stinging insects from gaining access into your home.
