Some problems with pests can be handled as a DIY project using over-the-counter products, but if the infestation is large and the pests are becoming a danger to your family, it might be better to use a professional. For example, if you or a family member is allergic to bees, it would be wise to hire a bee removal service that can get rid of the danger quickly and efficiently. Similarly, if your family is prone to allergies and skin sensitivities, professional ant removal is probably your best bet.
If there is just one hive, it’s located outdoors and a good distance from any structure, you might be able to solve the problem by putting on protective gear and spraying the hive with warm, soapy water. But if there are many hives, and they have infested the structure of your home, you could do more harm than good by trying to tackle the problem yourself. Soapy water will not suffice to eradicate multiple, well-established hives and consumer pesticides can pose a serious health risk to children and pets. An experienced, professional bee removal service has the proper products and methods to quickly and easily remove bees, safeguarding your property and your family’s health.
There’s no need to call in the SWAT team when you see a few ants have tracked in from the garden, but an ant infestation is a serious problem that is best handled by a professional ant removal service. Some ants are more harmful than others. For example, carpenter ants can chew through wood, potentially causing damage to a structure, requiring costly repairs. Fire ants can bite and cause severe skin irritations, sometimes requiring medical treatment. If there are ants in areas of your home where there is no food eaten or stored, or you can hear ants when listening to the walls, there’s a good chance you might have an ant infestation. Traps are usually not sufficient, and applying pesticides on your own is risky, that’s why you should call a professional ant removal service to get the job done right.
