Bees are commercially valuable and an important part of our ecosystem, but in the wrong place at the wrong time, wasps and bees can become a serious pest. If you think you may have a bee infestation, Truly Nolen can help you first determine whether you're actually dealing with wasps or bees or if it some other stinging insect.

The bees are eradicated, but the honeycomb remains on site. Without the bees to provide cooling, the wax liquefies and the honey runs down the walls. Mold soon forms on this sticky mess. Eventually an offensive odor develops from the decaying nest. Damage to your structure is occurring. The decaying nest is also a secondary attractant for other pests. Other bee swarms will try to re-infest the abandoned honey comb. Ants, cockroaches, carpet beetles, and other insects are highly attracted to the sweet honey and dead bee carcasses, so they infest the area too.
This non-intrusive pheromone-based unit attracts and traps scout bees. When the scout bees don't return to the nest to redirect the swarm toward your home, the swarm goes elsewhere. With no scout bee feedback about your property, it becomes invisible to the swarm.
This pheromone based unit attracts the swarm to the vessel. It's used as a containment system so that the swarm can be effectively exterminated. The trap is placed around vegetation or under building eaves where bees commonly swarm and nest.
