Ocala horse farm Yellow Jacket removal

Ocala Yellow Jacket Nest
We received a 911 call today from an Ocala horse farm.. Ground bees were swarming and attacking guests and pets attempting to get through the main gate.

Well, we arrived near dusk, and found a sizable colony of Southern YellowJackets, and boy, were they mad! Somebody had sprayed them with wasp spray, which killed some of them, but really made the rest of them ballistic!

This photo shows several of the plates, and you can plainly see the pupal cases, which are the white swatches. I think the symmetry of the queen's laying pattern is really beautiful, don't you?

So, contact us, for expert Ocala Yellow Jacket Removal, even these nests that measure over three feet wide. Call 352-870-0346 or 1-800-343-5317 or visitALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com

Tallahassee Yellow Jacket Removal

This has bad news written all over it.. A small Southern Yellow Jacket nest opening in a front yard of a Tallahassee home, just waiting for a child to run near it, or maybe retrieve an errant ball that has landed nearby. It may only look like a small hole, but hidden in the ground are maybe 5-10,000 YellowJacket wasps, ready to deliver hundreds and maybe thousands of stings.
Don't take a chance with self-treating these nests. We often perform rescues, where the client has only succeeded in irritiating these very defensive wasps, and are held hostage in their own home, waiting for us to arrive and perform an emergency YellowJacket removal in Tallahassee.
And this species of Yellow Jacket, Vespula squamosa can attain enormous size, in mere weeks during the late summer and fall. Each nest can hold dozens of queens, producing 10's of thousands of eggs per day, which equals 10's of thousands of adults emerging each day!
Bee safe. Call the entomologists at 850-391-0272, 1-800-343-5317 or email us at info@ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com , and we'll remove your sting worries for good, the first time!

Rockledge Brevard County Fla. Yellow Jacket Nest Removal

Rockledge Yellow Jacket Nest Removal Brevard County Yellowjacket removal

Brevard ground wasp nest opening
This photo shows the opening of a large Yellow Jacket nest that we removed yesterday, Aug 30, 2010 in Rockledge, FL. You can see the paper nest really well, and this represents just part of the openings that were visible above ground. The nest below ground measured about 3 foot by 4 foot, and was about 18" deep! The client had tried to treat it with wasp and hornet spray, but after about 10 cans, his wife finally called us,  the entomologists at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com. for fast removal of these very large wasp nests.

This species is the Southern Yellow Jacket, Vespula squamosa. See our Yellowjacket pages for more info. These wasp nests can get HUGE, with numbers over one MILLION individuals. Here's a link to a video of us treating a large Yellow Jacket wasp nest..notice how many of these wasps are flying around! When you get a nest this size, treatments that your redneck brother-in-law recommends (like gasoline, kerosene, putting a bowl over the openings) simply do not work. (Read here why gasoline and kerosene should NEVER be used, anyway!). We have arrived at many, many jobs where clients have tried all these treatments and more, and STILL have the Yellowjackets, but now they've really made them MAD!!!

Protect yourself, your neighbors and your assets. Call us at 321-206-5100, 800-343-5317 or Send us an email, for professional Rockledge & Cocoa Beach Yellow Jacket removal from the Stinging Insect Experts at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com

Clermont Hornet Nest

Clermont Hornet and Yellow Jacket Removal

We are getting plenty of calls for Hornet removal, now that it's late summer. Hornets, (actually a large yellow jacket wasp), start building a paper nest in early spring, and in late summer and fall, become large enough to start stinging with force.
Hornet Control can be difficult, as the nests can contain up to about 500 individuals, with nearly all of them capable of delivering quite a wallop!
Don't risk getting stung, call the pros at http://ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com 321-206-5100 or toll free at 800-343-5317

Winter Park Bee Removal

 Winter Park Honey Bee Removal

This is a cool pic of a recent Winter Park Bee Removal we did. A swarm had recently landed in the soffit of the house, and as you can see, they are packed tightly together and building comb quickly. We were able to perform a live honey bee removal in this instance, as the colony was newly established, small, relatively gentle and we had decent setback and shrubbery, affording the neighbors some protection.

In Winter Park, we are starting to see African Honey Bees, aka Killer Bees moving in from the East, so we think it's important to proceed cautiously when faced with a honey bee infestation. These bees were are starting to see in Winter Park, are becoming more defensive, and pose quite a liability risk to property owners and managers. When considering structural bee removal, please consider only hiring a professional, meaning one who maintains a Florida Pest Control Business License, as a minimum, as if the worst happens, and a sting event occurs, you're assets will be much more protected, than if an unlicensed provider was hired.

And, just because someone hangs the word "beekeeper" after his or her name, don't assume he or she knows bees or is licensed and insured. We are seeing some very suspect characters getting into the bee removal business these days, and have been requested on emergency calls, after a "bee keeper" has attempted a removal. Please see my posts here and here, about beekeepers performing bee removals on structures. Remember, Fla. State Statute requires a pest control license to remove bee colonies from and around structures. The University of Florida Bee Entomologist AND the Florida Apiary Chief (head beekeeper) concur.... Protect yourself, your neighbors and your assets. Call us at 321-206-5100, 800-343-5317 or Send us an email, for professional bee removal from the Stinging Insect Experts at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com

Orlando Wasp Control

Orlando Wasp Nest Removal

Paper wasps are fascinating insects, but when they build nests around the home, the fascination can quickly turn into annoyance, fear and even dangerous stings!

Here's the fascinating part: All wasps are predators, seeking softbodied insects such as caterpillars to cut up with their mouthparts, and transport back to the nest, where they present the goodies to the nest larvae (grublike 'wasp babies'). The larvae eat, partially digest and then regurgitate this back to the adults, in a easy to digest form.


The nests are made of a kind of paper mache', where the adults chew up tree bark and other cellulose containing materials, add saliva and make these open celled nests, that are hung upside down. You can see the white larvae, and the greyish-white pupal cases in this pic.

The fearful part? Well, in some cases, I've seen infestations with many nests, and as they grow larger, some species of Polistes Paper Wasps can get very defensive, threating and even stinging people and pets. For those that are allergic to bee, ant and wasp venom, this can be a serious medical event.

Palm Coast Live Bee Removal

Well, like we often say, bees will build their nests anywhere, and today's bee removal is a great example of that saying. This s a plastic barrel, and the honey bees have built their nest IN the barrel! They are using the bung hole (that's a real word, honest!), as the colony entrance:

This colony was found by the homeowner, while mowing his lawn. He had originally placed the barrel to use as a shallow well, but kind of forgot about it. Boy that sounds familiar!

Because the barrel was actually on city right of way, the City of Palm Coast contracted with us to perform the removal. They asked if we could attempt a live removal, and in this case we were able to perform a live honey bee removal!









I'll post more pictures as we move this off the front page. It went really well, and Palm Coast public access television recorded the removal process. For your live honey bee removal, visit us online at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com  Call us at 800-343-5317 or you can email us at Help, we have bees! for quick, competent and reasonably priced bee removal services.

Dunnellon Killer Bee Removal in a Tree Hole

Bees LOVE Trees! We've all heard of the Winnie The Poo Bee Tree, right?
Well, this is one that Winnie had better stay away from, because it most likely houses African Honey Bees, aka Killer Bees! These bees were extremely defensive, stinging me so badly, that my bee suit was covered with stingers from my lower torso on up. They were hitting my helmet so hard it sounded like a popcorn popper!
These bees are nothing to mess with folks, and we are seeing them move further north with each passing year. Don't attempt to treat a bee tree yourself, as this client did. Can you see the burnt bark?..yeah, they tried to burn the bees out...didn't work :)
Call the professionals at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com , and we will treat you right, and the killer bees right too.. 800-343-5317, or send us an email here!

Ocala bees on tree Limb


While most Honey Bee colonies elect to build in confined voids, such as hollow trees, some build right out in the open, usually hanging their comb from the bottoms of large limbs.
This external colony proclivity, is a known trait for African, or Killer Bees, but plain-vanilla European Bee colonies will build nests externally as well, but a much lower rate.
This colony was located on farm land, so we might try a live removal, as there's wide open spaces and a pretty low sting risk. The owner is neat too, he is allowing us to place some of our hive boxes near his garden area! coolio.

Jacksonville Bees in a Tree ( and lotsa Maggots too!!)


This photo is a closeup of small hive beetle larvae, aka MAGGOTS!!, on a tree's bark in Jacksonville, Florida.
We often see these leaving a a bee hive (colony, to be correct), when the bee colony is not doing so well. Usually, this happens when a well meaning client sprays the bee colony with over the counter insecticide. Or worse, when a beekeeper or pest control operator sprays the wrong spray.
What follows is often fodder for horror movies. Tens of thousands of small hive beetle MAGGOTS take over the weakened colony, and, in just a few days, their feeding spreads yeasts throughout the nest.
What happens when you combine yeast and a high sugar substance like honey??? Yep, you get fermented honey, and it ooozes down the tree, smelling and attracting all kinds of insects, including marauding bees from other colonies. These bees are lovingly called 'robber bees', and they can bee extremely ornery and aggressive. The sting risk goes sky high. Not a good scene, especially at this client's home, as she has two small doggies, who already have incurred $800 in vet bills because they are allergic to bees.

Port Orange Fla., Free Bee Removal


We have clients calling us every day, asking if we do free bee removals. Well, we normally don't, mainly for reasons I discuss in this blog post and in this post too , so what we did today is rather unusual for us.

A client in Port Orange, Fla., called us last week and said he needed bees removed and how much would we charge. When we asked him for more info, he said that the bees were in a hive box that he had kept for a few years, and he needed to get rid of them, so he could sell his house. I think he was pretty happy that we could relocate them at no charge, since the bee colony looked to be in fairly decent shape. See the pic below, the bees are 'bearding' all over the front of the hive box, which means the colony is mature, and could even stand to be split.

Port Orange Free Bee Removal !


But where to relocate the bees? We could have taken them to one of our apiaries, but one of our good friends, Beth Fox, ex-la presidente of Orange Blossom Beekeepers, had written to me last week, asking if I had any spare bee colonies as she lost a couple this summer. I gave her a ring today, and she said she lost her remaining 2 colonies, leaving her with no bees, and yes, she would be elated to provide a new home for the 'girls'.

Our technicians, Jason and Asheton, transferred the hive box and all to Beth's house this afternoon and we wish all the girls good luck!

Titusville Brevard County Yellow Jackets in recliner


Sit down in this Laz-Boy recliner and you'd have a heck of a buzzing surprise!

Brevard County Yellow Jacket Nest

A colony of Southern YellowJackets, Vespula squamosa, decided to make their nest inside this recliner. Amazingly, this is very common, as the interior of most upholstered furniture has very large voids, providing perfect refuge in which to raise young, and to defend. If you look closely, you can see several openings that these wasps have chewed open, and surrounded with a paper like substance that they manufacture from tree barks.

Please////DON"T attempt to treat a colony this size-- we have worked fatalities because of these defensive Yellowjackets or ground hornets.

Orlando Honey Bee Swarm



I consider a honey bee swarm to be a "wonder of the world", and if you've ever had the pleasure to be within this natural phenomenon, you know what I mean. Tens of thousands bees, seemingly confused and flying randomly, darkening the sky with their bodies... I'm sure this can cause fear amongst some, but this is social order and group decision making at it's finest.

This photo is of such an event, an Orlando bee swarm, occurring a couple days ago in late August. Traditionally, we would not expect such late swarms, as European honey bees typically swarm in early spring as colony populations increase rapidly. But lo and behold.. African honey bees swarm nearly all year long, and since they have been increasing in numbers in the Orlando area over the past few years, we are seeing many, many more swarming events occurring this time of year. And, more of these swarms are stinging clients, children and pets, so please don't attempt to treat or remove these. Contact ALLFloridaBeeRemoval for quick, competent and reasonably priced bee removal services.

St. Cloud Fla., Killer Bee swarm on trailer


St. Cloud Bee Swarm
Here is a late summer honey bee swarm on a trailer in St. Cloud, FL. This is almost certainly an Africanized Honey Bee swarm, aka Killer Bee. We are encountering many killer bees now in St. Cloud and Kissimmee, so one should be very careful when approaching bees, as we have had several seemingly docile swarms attack us full-on this year, when approached.

Please do not spray insecticides, bug spray, kerosene, or streams of water, as this can provoke an attack from the swarm.

Lake City Bumble Bee treatment and removal


Lake City Bumble Bee nest under shed
Here's a photo of a shed in a Lake City Back yard that had a very large Bumble Bee nest underneath the floor. if you look closely, you can see the unmowed strip of grass. That's because the client had to stop mowing and RUN when he was attacked by lots of defensive Bumble bees. Lucky for him, he's fast, because he's very allergic to bee and wasp venom!

We treated and removed this bumble bee nest, and he doesn't have to worry about getitng stung again.

Jacksonville Bee Removal in dining room ceiling


Jacksonville, Fla. bee nest in ceiling



Honey bees will build their nests inside structures, and one of the common locations is in multi-floor buildings, where they will readily build comb between the floor/ceilings, between joists. This colony had been sprayed twice by pest control operators, but the bees persisted. Finally after spending more than $400 on those ineffective sprays and having loads of rotten honey and bees getting into the living areas, the client called us at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com.

We treated and removed this colony which weighed over 100 pounds, and also tackled a smaller colony on the other side of the house. Do it right the first time!

Jacksonville Fla., Bumble Bee Nest


Don't try this!
This was a really good one. Our client was attacked by what he thought were ground hornets while mowing his lawn. Being the handy-do-it-selfer family man he is, he set out to take care of these pesky critters.
So, he first attempted to burn them out. set fire to the grass covering the nest opening and nearly started a forest fire! Next up was a week long campaign to dowse them with insecticide, which resulted in small reduction in population AND very angry bees. You see, these weren't hornets, but actually they were Bumble Bees!





Bumble bee nest opening





Bumble bees often nest in abandoned rodent burrows as seen here. They can number in the hundreds per colony, and can be very defensive girls, rivaling Killer Bees (African Honey Bees, actually), in the distance that they will chase victims. It's not unusual to receive 50 stings before one runs the several hundred feet to get away.

Lady Lake Fla., Honey Bee nest in Tree Hole


Large bee colony in tree, Lady Lake, Fla.
We were called out to inspect this tree with a large colony of Honey Bees residing in the hollow of the tree. Bees love to build in trees, so much so that old-timers will call these trees "Bee-trees".
It's cool to see all these workers, out doing what is called "washboarding", where they rythmically rock back and forth, cleaning the tree bark with their mandibles (jaws). They also deposit a resin compound derived from tree saps called propolis. This is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and is sure sign that the bees are building the nest size.
We advise against letting the colony continue, as we encounter many bee tree colonies that get VERY defensive, stinging dogs, clients, neighbors, especially where we find African Killer bees. Lady Lake has a growing population of killer bees.
Don't risk it. Call us at (855)930.BEES for proper stinging insect control.

Marion County Bumble Bee removal

This photo shows me holding the pupal cases from a Bumble Bee nest that was located in a Citra, FL., cabbage palm tree.

Bumble bee nests are really cool looking, loosely constructed with lots of the egg looking shapes, which are actually developing pupae, the metamorphosis stage between larvae grub and adult with wings.

This nest of at least 150 adults was particularly defensive, stinging the homeowner, her dogs and even peacocks! The bumble bees chased her over 300 feet into her house. She tried to treat them at night, and they even followed her and stung her again!

Cocoa backyard shed bee hive removal


Cool pic of bee hive comb removed from a Cocoa Beach backyard shed. This was probably an African ( aka Killer Bee ) colony. We have been finding LOTS of Killer Bees in Cocoa, and one thing that killer bees really like to do is build their nest close to the ground. So, they often will build under the shed floor, between the joists, usually gaining access through an abandoned armadillo or 'possum hole.
It's very important to remove the nest comb, or your WILL have another bee colony move in, and you'll have to deal with millions of beetle and fly maggots. Pay a little more, get the nest removed and have peace of mind. Call us at (855) 930.BEES for fast, expert service. The Stinging Insect Specialists!

Williston, Fla.: Yellow Jacket removal; Reproductive Queen and worker Photo


Here's a closeup of a Southern Yellow Jacket queen and one of her daughter workers. The scientific name for the southern yellow jacket is Vespula squamosa, and it is the dominant species here in peninsular Florida. One of the cool behaviours of  V. squamosa is its ability to foster many queens in the same nest, which of course leads to extremely large nest sizes with populations exceeding One Million (!) individuals.
These girls came from a colony located in a ground nest on a cattle farm in Williston, Fla. Call us for expert yellow jacket removal

Orlando electric meter honey bees treatment


Honey bees are great electricians! No, actually they really like to build their colonies in voids, and block walls have lovely spaces for bees to reside. And.. more importantly, many electric meters are not sealed properly, allowing enough space for bees to get behind and, yep, into the block wall, where they can pack away hundreds of pounds of honey, pollen, wax and bees.
Now, most pest control companies will just do a quick 'drive-by' spray, collect $85 and go on their way, only to leave you with big problems...the bees don't die ( hey, 50,000 adult bees, plus 150000 baby bees put up a good fight!), they get really mad, threatening you and your neighbors, and some colony damage is caused, resulting in fermenting honey, maggots and smelly, gross mollasses like oozing.
We have a protocol that works. Developed by Entomologists here at ALLFloridaBeeRemoval.com. Call us for proper block wall bee control --(855) 930.BEES

Leesburg, Fla. Bee removal from house soffit


This photo was taken as we were amidst a honey bee removal located in a Leesburg house soffit. Honey bees often build in structural voids, and soffits are very common. You can see where we removed several 'plates' of comb already, and to the right, you can see several more plates stacked up. Notice the dark color.. that is from metabolic wastes..(bee-poo!!), from many generations of baby bees being raised.


I think this shows how you might not want to just spray a honey bee colony and leave it. Each plate of comb weighs about 7 or so pounds. Multiply 7 pounds by the 16 plates removed from this soffit, and you have  112 POUNDS of honey, pollen, wax, immature bees left in the soffit. Don't forget to add about another 10 pounds for the adult bees too! Almost 125 pounds of organic matter, just ripe for beetle and fly maggots to come in and turn this into a smelly, fermenting, oozing mess.


Call us at 8(855) 930.BEES and we can do a professional, proper removal of your stinging insect infestation.

Lady Lake Fla. elect meter bee removal



This is honey bee comb from a local electric utility electrical meter box. It's almost all brood (immature bees- eggs, larvae, pupae), and is almost certainly Africanized Honey Bee, aka Killer Bee. We are seeing more suspected Killer bees in the Villages, Lady Lake and even up to Silver Springs Shores this year, with some really mean bees at times. Please don't attempt a meter box bee removal, as it doesn't take much provocation to set the bees into an attack mode. Call us at (855) 930.BEES for the stinging insect specialists!
