Honey bees can build a nest inside the house or other building wall, causing a nuisance, a health hazard, and a severe threat to the structure. However, not all “bees” that nest in the wall are honey bees.
Honey bees, yellow jackets, and wasps are nearly identical in size, shape, and general appearance.
The bee colour is the most accessible distinguishing characteristic. Thus, honey bees are fuzzy brown. Yellowjackets are yellow with black markings.
Honey bee colonies in-wall or attic voids are a much more severe problem than yellowjacket wasps.
Salvaging honey bee colonies from within your walls is usually not practical. Therefore, extermination is recommended. Wild honey bees are of no value to a professional beekeeper. They are often heavily infested with parasites and diseases—Pest Control in West Auckland, North Shore, Eastern Bays, South Auckland and Hibiscus Coast.
BEE ALERT – Beware of the Busy Bee
Most bees found in Auckland are earnest, hard-working types who prefer the joys of simple labour to swagger around looking for people to scare.
Having their work interrupted or their flight blocked by a hysterical human may frighten or irritate them into stinging whoever is doing the flailing.
European bees are not a threat unless aggravated. Aggravation will only occur if they feel their hive is under threat. Unlike the European honey bee, the Africanised bee does not need an excuse to attack humans. They will protect their hive and queen in a large area. Unlike the European honey bee, the Africanised bee can pursue intruders for up to a km and remain aggravated for 24 hours.
The most common stinging bee in Auckland is the honey bee, introduced into Europe in the 18th century. The stinger resembles a needle with barbs and injects a mixture of venoms into the skin. The venom contains several kinds of proteins and enzymes believed to cause allergic reactions of varying degrees in humans. Sting reactions, which may increase with succeeding stings, include:
Bees are a real problem during the summer. Often, the commercial bee seeks to build a new hive inside a wall cavity of either a residential or business premises. A swarm of honey bees can be extremely dangerous and can attack a person in large numbers, causing death. It is also known to carry toxic venom. It is injected directly into the victim’s bloodstream, inflicting a painful skin swelling, particularly in children and people with fair complexions. In some cases, death may occur to people allergic to bee venom or bitten by the swarm of bees in large numbers. That’s why Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland Services serve in West Auckland, North Shore, Eastern Bays, South Auckland and Hibiscus Coast.

Killer bees are dangerous despite their new name. Without provocation, they will attack anything moving within 50 metres of their hive nest, and another will chase a running target. Thus, bee control treatments should be done as soon as possible.
In appearance, killer bees look like any other honey bee—however, it’s their lousy attitude that sets them apart.
Bees can also be affected by the type of clothing people wear for reasons unknown. Dark clothing irritates them, which is why professional beekeepers wear light-coloured clothes when tending to their hives. Bee control treatments should be done as soon as possible.
Treat nests in walls by injecting an insecticide bee control product in the nest entrance during the evening or night. Place no more than two tablespoons of insecticide dust into a dry, empty liquid detergent bottle. Shake lightly, hold the container to the nest opening and squeeze firmly.
Bee control is usually within a few days. Don’t plug a nest opening in a house wall until one is certain all activity within the nest has stopped. “Wasp and hornet” aerosol sprays may not provide adequate control of honey bee nests inside wall cavities, depending on how far the nest is from the nest opening. Steam ‘n’ Dry Bee Control Auckland Service treatments are guaranteed in North Shore, East, West, and South Auckland City.
