Last Resort Eradication - The decision to treat will depend if it is possible to close the entrance(s) to the nest after treatment. In this circumstance make sure you use a trained professional. We strongly recommend you contact us at Shire Pest Solutions as we are fully trained professional and have the technical knowledge and access to a range of professional use insecticides.
Post treatment requirements will vary depending on the species of bees you have. For bumblebees, blocking up access points will prevent non-target bees from entering and getting contaminated, as well as shortening the likelihood of other bees accessing the same area in the future.
For solitary/masonry bees, in the long term, re-pointing with sound mortar is the only answer. However, this must be thoroughly as bees hunting for a nest site will soon locate areas that have been missed.
For honey bees, it is essential that entrance points or blocked off, and if possible remove all the honeycomb. Failure to do this will cause robber bees to find the infected honey and take it back to their hive, thus contaminating it.
