Bee removal

Because we value bees as necessary pollinators in our area, we strive to remove these pests and relocate them to a local bee farm or area where they do not pose a threat. Our experts will come and relocate the hive, as well as provide honeycomb removal, cleanup, and repair if necessary.


Wasp extermination & removal

Wasp Extermination and Removal – When it comes to wasps, our expert technicians will come in to remove or exterminate the wasp colony. In addition, they will remove all existing nests in your home, business, or property as abandoned nests can be a big invitation to new wasps.

Difference between bees & wasps

Both bees and wasps can be very beneficial to humans and our environment. While bees are well-known for their pollination, wasps are predatory insects that help control pests that can infest crops, gardens, and landscape plants. But what really makes them different?

Types of bees

When it comes to bee populations in the Phoenix area, there are actually many different species, including some that you may not be aware of. Bees are pollinators, covered with tiny hairs that collect pollen and play a vital role in pollination. In addition to these main bee species, you can also find long-horned, mining, squash, sweat, leafcutter, mason, cuckoo, and yellow-faced bees in the Phoenix area.

Bumble bee

These are extremely hairy bees that can be up to an inch long and tend to live below boards or underground. They are black with yellow, orange, or white bands.


Honeybees can grow up to ¾ inch and have brownish-gold hair. These are the bees responsible for most of the pollination. While European honeybees do not usually pose much of a threat, here in the Phoenix area, most honeybee colonies are mixed with Africanized honeybees and can become highly aggressive when protecting their hive.
Carpenter Bee

Carpenter bees

Often confused with bumblebees, carpenter bees have large jaws that allow them to chew wood. While they aren’t usually aggressive, they can cause damage to your home or business.

Types of wasps

While wasps may unintentionally pollinate, they are meat and sweet scavengers that collect food to return the nest and feed other colony members. This means they can play a beneficial role in pest control, as they hunt other insects. There are two main wasp species in our area.
Yellowjacket Wasp

Western Yellowjackets

These are black and yellow striped wasps that are social and typically ground-nesting, often nesting in rodent burrows, and wall voids, though they can be found in attics.
Paper Wasp

Paper Wasps

The three most common paper wasps in our area are the yellow paper wasp, Navajo paper wasp, and Arizona paper wasp. These wasp nests are typically found on roof overhangs and ceilings.


No one wants to share their home with pests and our technicians understand this. Residential pest control begins with a comprehensive inspection and evaluation, looking for signs of pest activity and property damage. Our experts inspect your home, they create a comprehensive treatment plan to exterminate and remove the problem pests, address any home damage, and work with you to create a deterrent and pest management solution to keep your home pest-free.


Pests in a commercial business can mean lost revenue our team understands the urgency when it comes to pest management. After initial inspection, our team gets straight to work to remove and exterminate the pests as quickly and safely as possible. For our commercial clients, we understand the problems pests create, so our main focus after clearing your business will focus on deterrents and keeping any unwanted pests from every returning.


The best form of pest management and control is keeping them from every entering your property. We use our expertise to create a deterrent program for your specific property and pest concerns in order to prevent the entry of these pests and further infestations down the road. We address points of entry to determine exclusion points and help to establish a pest-free perimeter to your home or business, ensuring that there is nothing attracting these pests inside.

About bees & wasps

Bees and wasps can be difficult to tell apart at first glance, but there are some key differences between the two. For example, bees are usually larger and more rounded than wasps and are covered in hair. Wasps, on the other hand, are typically thinner and have fewer hairs on their bodies. The colors of bees and wasps also differ, with bees tending to be brown or black and wasps being yellow or red.

Bees are found worldwide, but wasps are more prevalent in tropical regions. Both bees and wasps play important roles in pollination and pest control, but their methods differ. They are more active in the warmer months, but they can still be a nuisance in the colder months if they find their way into your home. If you see a bee or wasp inside your house, it’s best to leave it alone and contact a professional for removal.

Both bees and wasps can bite, but they typically only do so if they feel threatened. If a bee or wasp bites you, wash the area with soap and water and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If you have a severe allergic reaction, seek medical attention immediately.


Do bees come back after removal?

After bee removal, there is a chance that some bees will return. Worker bees that were not present during the bee removal process may return later to the hive. With the queen no longer there, these bees become what is known as straggler bees. In most cases, these bees will leave on their own once they realize the queen is no longer there, however some may remain. If straggler bees remain for an extended time, our technicians can return to collect them at no additional charge.

Where do wasps build nests?

Depending on the type of wasp, you can expect to find nests in holes underground, around the spaces in your foundation, attached to the sides of buildings or trees, and under the eaves of porches and patios.

Why are bees around my house?

While bees search for pollen and nectar, they also search for sources of water, and your home may be providing that source. In addition, if you have had previous bee problems, a pre-existing hive or scent may be attracting a new colony.

How long does a wasp nest last?

A typical wasp nest lasts three to four months. However, an abandoned wasp nest can attract new wasps that will recycle the nest material to build a new one. This is why nest removal is a necessary part of wasp extermination.
