Bee and Wasp Prevention and Protection in Austin

Stinging insect control and treatments include removing their hives and nesting sites from your property. Bees and wasps will often look for old tires, furniture and other piles of junk to establish a quiet and safe location in which to reside.

A-Tex Pest Management can advise you on how to prevent bees and wasps from infesting your property. We recommend that fine screens be installed around vents and openings to prevent these insects from making their homes around your pipes and gutters. Chimneys, walls and all plumbing should also be carefully sealed.

How Do You Prevent a Bee & Wasp Infestation?

Preventing bee and wasp infestations involves a few simple steps to keep them away from your home:

  • Seal Entry Points: Check your home for any holes or gaps and seal them up with caulk or other materials.
  • Cover Food: Bees and wasps love sweet treats, so keep your outdoor food covered to avoid attracting them.
  • Dispose of Trash Properly: Make sure your trash cans have lids that fit tightly and empty them regularly, especially if they contain sweet or smelly garbage.
  • Trim Plants: Keep bushes and trees trimmed away from your house, as bees and wasps often build nests in overgrown vegetation.
  • Eliminate Standing Water: Get rid of any pools of water around your property, as bees and wasps are drawn to them.
  • Use Repellents: You can find repellents in stores or make your own using natural ingredients like essential oils.
  • Set Traps: Hang up traps designed to attract and catch bees and wasps.
  • Get Professional Help: If you already have a problem, it's best to call in the experts to safely remove nests and prevent future infestations.

By following these tips, you can keep your home bee and wasp-free without any trouble!
