A lot has been discussed on why we need the Honey Bee to survive and why we shouldn’t be killing them off. The problem Pest Control Companies have is that there is no place to take the bees if they can be saved. The other issue we run into is that they make a hive in areas that cant bee accessed very well or in areas that cant be gotten to at all. I’ve had them make there hive in a street light pole or a billboard pole. Sometimes in a huge oak tree that’s been around for over a hundred years. Killer bees are a danger to the public. We run into them all the time. very dangerous bee. Only way to tell the difference between a honey bee and a killer bee is under a microscope or by walking up to the hive. No bee keeper wants those kind of aggressive bees. I cant tell you how many calls I go out on each year and they have killed someone’s pets in there back yard that were tied up or fenced in and had no where to run away from them. Just some things to consider when you want to save the bee. We need bees to pollinate our crops and to give us honey. But you have to be realistic about how much we can do to save them all. We cant live without these tireless little workers. We need them to survive as a human race. But we also cant do nothing about them if the set up a hive that’s going to put the public at risk. People die every year from bee stings. We have to be smart and use common sense solutions in the future when dealing with this growing public threat.
With all the rain we have been getting rodents like other pests are looking for places to find shelter. All the flooding is driving rodents indoors. As the waters recede you will want to remove all trash and debris from around you’re yard. Cut back trees 6 foot away from you’re home. Make sure bird feeders are well away from the house. Pick up pet food if you feed you’re animals outside as soon as they are done eating. Seal all holes on roof and vents with metal and hardware cloth to close off entry points. Keep you’re garage door shut when not in use. These are things u can do to help keep you’re home as a target for unwanted rodents. If that doesn’t help call us, we can help 210 430 3996.
This is the time of the year bats start migrating back to Texas from Mexico. They are attracted to homes and businesses because of the lights that fill the skies. Lights attract mosquito’s one of the favorite foods of bats. One way to keep bats from finding you’re home or business as an attractive place to call home is to keep the lights off at night.
Seal all gaps in the siding with caulking or foam. Bats can squeeze into the smallest little holes. Make sure gaps around the chimney are sealed and that you have a good cap on the chimney. Also make sure all cement gaps between the bricks is there. Bats love to nest in and around chimneys and roof lines. under shutters or behind them. In the louvers of vents on the side of a house.
All these area’s need to be checked. If you have a colony of bats living in any of these area’s you will see piles of bat droppings under where they are entering into the home or building. You will see discoloration of paint in area’s they are using. You might even see or hear them. They will most likely be having young right now and you might have to wait till the young are strong enough to fly before any bat work can be started.
If you need them removed humanly we can help. Just give us a call. we have years of experience in dealing with bat related conflicts.
This time of year the squirrels are getting ready to have there young. The female squirrels are out looking for places to have them. If you are hearing noises in you’re attic during the morning hours and late afternoon you might have a squirrel problem in you’re attic. Squirrels are usually most active during the morning hours and late afternoons feeding. The are usually out sunning themselves during the day and at night sleeping. They gain access to you’re roof by running wires of up a tree and onto the house. They are great climbers and can just run up the side of a house if they really want to. I have found that most female squirrels have a average of 2 to 3 young 2 times a year on average.
I have seen roof rats and squirrels share the same attic space. Its not that common but does happen. There dropping look a lot alike. A trained eye can tell the difference though. Rats are nocturnal and squirrels aren’t. They can feed on the same things like bird seed, grains, nuts, dog and cat foods. When trying to removal squirrels and rats from the attics of homes or from in the walls it takes different methods. Usually you are only going to have only one family of squirrels in a attic unless its breeding season. We on average usually catch a adult female squirrel and 2 to 3 young or depending on the time of season we might catch a couple females and males.
After we catch all the squirrels in the attic or walls we need to help you keep them from coming back by sealing the holes off with metal. We use screws to screw the metal patches in so that the patches don’t pull out. I cant tell you how many times I have gone out on a job and had to correct some crappy exclusion work were they used staples. Staples pull out over time and the squirrels can get back in. Screws are much stronger and hold better. If a rodent wants in they will chew another hole anyways. Cutting back tree’s and putting up wire guards can help to. Keeping the squirrels off you’re roof in the first place is always your best bet. They can still run up the side of the house and still get on your roof if they really want to but its been my experience that they don’t like to do that. They would rather have tree’s to run up and then across a roof and onto another tree if possible. They use them like highways.
Picking up pet food dishes at night if you feed you’re animals outside helps. Keeping bird feeders way away from the house helps to. they don’t only feed the birds but also draw raccoons, rats, opossums, mice, squirrels and other animals up to you’re home. If you have a tree that produces nuts its god to always keep the area under that tree cleaned up. These common sense practices will help make you’re home not as enticing to squirrels.
A lot has been and is being discussed on the honey bee populations in the United States on the decline do to environmental issues, chemicals and other contributing factors. Honey bees are great for the environment and and we need them in order for our crops and flowers to be pollinated. They give us honey the only source of food that has everything in it to sustain life as we know it. The problem is, how do we save them when the invade urban area’s and surrounding area’s? Honey Bee keepers can only save so many. Most honey bee keepers don’t want the killer bee or the Africanized Bee. So the trick in the future is what are we suppose to do with the bee swarms that land in a crowded area’s like a outside mall, car lot or shopping center. Its easy to catch the swarm and relocate it. But there are not a lot of area’s we can relocate them to in my experience. The only way to tell if its just a honey bee or a killer bee is under a microscope or by walking up to a hive can usually let you know which it is but not scientifically.
What do we do with a Mexican Honey Bee hive if its found in a school yard? What do we do with africanized bees if we happen to run across them? These are questions that we need to ask before strict laws are made to regulate how we are gonna have to deal with them. What if they colonize in a tree next to a busy shopping center? A tree that”s been around for hundreds of years.
I love bees and all that they do for us. We need to save as many as we can because we need them. They are hard workers and provide us with so much. Just some thoughts on the future of Bee Removal, Bee Control in San Antonio Texas.
