Bees play an important and critical role in our ecosystem. By moving from flower to flower in search of nectar, bees pollinate plants and help them reproduce, as well as help crops grow. While these hard working insects are vital to our food chain, they can pose a danger to us when they choose to establish colonies in our roofs, walls, or chimneys. If you’ve been spotting bees in or around your Coral Gables home, you may very well have an infestation. This is not a job you want to tackle on your own. Bees can become very aggressive when they feel their colony is threatened. Bee stings can be painful and possibly life threatening to those with allergies. It’s not worth the risk. You need a trained professional. Colonies grow quickly, so you must act quickly.

At I Pest Control, we respect bees and honor the role they play in our environment. For this reason, we devote the best our efforts to removing bee colonies humanely, without the use of harmful pesticides.
Know what you’re dealing with:
Carpenter bees are entirely black, shiny, and hairless, and tend to burrow in untreated, unfinished wood. While they aren’t aggressive in nature, they can be very difficult to control.
Honeybees have black and gold stripes, and are the most widely recognized species of bee. The honey bee hive is made from wax and commonly found in holes of trees. While honey bees are only able to sting once, they guard their hive defensively and will act aggressively when threatened.
Bumblebees are covered with tiny hairs, which makes them look and feel fuzzy. Bumblebees tend to nest in the ground or under patios and decks. If you suspect that you have bumblebees, it is best to err on the side of caution. Bumblebees are extremely aggressive in nature and are capable of stinging more than once.
