ATLANTA, GA, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta wildlife control company, Urban Wildlife, addresses what you should do when bees find their way inside your home's walls. Honeybees are the most common culprit, though other species have been known to invade these areas as well.
What to Do With Wall-dwelling Bees
The gaps in exterior walls, especially those that are not insulated well, serve as a prime spot to build a nest and can be easily accessed if the outer wall is not fully sealed. Carpenter bees, for instance, make their homes primarily in decks, patios and other wooden structures; they bore holes into the material and can create extensive networks if allowed to live in one spot for an extended period of time.
Aside from the direct threat of having a beehive in your home, these insects can also cause considerable damage to plumbing and electrical lines, which makes getting rid of them a top priority. To prevent injury to yourself and others in the home, call an Atlanta pest control business as soon as you know there is a problem. The first thing you should do is try and identify what type of species you are dealing with.
Honeybees are typically the prime suspect and you will you know you have them if they are spotted leaving the nest in the spring time. If you happen upon a dead carcass and see that it is smooth, then it is likely a yellow jacket (they are the only species that do not have hair).
According to Richard Wallas, President of Urban Wildlife, "Another quick way to identify the species is by inspecting the nest if possible. Honeybees use wax, while carpenters and others use wood fibers. If you decide to try to remove the animals yourself, wear protective clothing and spray pesticide in the evening hours when they are most dormant."
