Quick honey bee facts

Are honey bees dangerous?

Honey bees are not an aggressive stinging insect. Generally speaking, if you leave them alone, they will leave you alone. If they are provoked or think their nest may be in danger, they will go on the defense and sting. Unlike others of their nature, these stinging insects can only sting once. Their sting has the potential to cause an allergic reaction for people who have an allergy to stinging insects. If the stinger is not removed it can be quite painful.

Does Aiken remove honey bees?

We do! In fact, we suggest if you have a nest on your property you call us immediately to get it removed safely. We offer a free inspection with no obligation. We also offer quarterly pest control service visits to make sure those honeybees don’t set up their nest on your property again next spring.
