Las Vegas Bee Removal
Most of the bees in the Las Vegas area are Afrcanized and are not the gentle, ever loving honey bee we all grew up with. These bees are very aggressive and will continue to follow a perceived aggressor for hours after they attack. Because of the seriousness of the problems that can be caused by these aggressive pests, it’s important to call us immediately if you see any evidence of a hive, colony or a gathering of bees in one particular area or location. Las Vegas bees can attack without provocation or warning and they’ve been known to carry out their attacks in groups and sting repeatedly. At Enviro Safe Pest Control, we take the threat they pose to you and your family very seriously.
Killer bees are responsible for more than 500,000 trips to the emergency room each year, bee stings can be deadly. Most of those treated for bee stings had no previous knowledge they were allergic or could be adversely affected. That’s why bee removal and prevention is so important.
Africanized, or “killer” bees can attack without provocation so it’s very important that you call us immediately if there is any indication of the presence of these pests. You can find them in garbage and trash containers, trees, sheds and garages, walls, porches, attics and utility boxes. If there are any abandoned vehicles, tree stumps or sheds on or near your property, there’s a chance that these killer bees are using it as their home.
For your safety, it’s very important that you do not try to remove them on your own or use rocks or sticks to try to dislodge them. If you wish to observe them, do so at a safe distance, preferably through a window.
If you are stung by a bee
If you are stung, first and foremost, don’t try to pull out the stinger as this often releases more venom into your skin. It’s best to use a dull knife or something with a similar edge like a credit card. In some cases Ice packs are recommend to help reduce the swelling caused by the sting, a paste made of baking soda can help.
