All County Pest Control takes the control process of New York bees very seriously. We want to do whatever is possible to protect the integrity of your home. Our service technician will need to know where ALL the hoovering bees have been noticed. Each hoovering male represents one nesting site and these entrance holes can be very hard to detect. After we survey the entire house, looking for all visable signs of holes and staining. Using dusting equipment and ladders, we will inject every visable nesting hole we can find. In addition, most homes that have Carpenter Bees in New York also have wasps in many of the same areas. We apply a liquid residue with power spray equipment to reach nesting sites that may be hidden or just way out of reach due to structural design.
