Bees are most often seen buzzing near flowers, from fruit tree blooms to decorative plants.
Carpenter bees drill holes in wood. These infestations are usually found in uncured wood in trees, fences, homes, wooden decks or outdoor furniture, or telephone poles.
Some kinds of bees make a visible nest. Most of these in Northern VA are either honeybees or a type of wasp (which are often mistaken for bees).

Fox Pest Control. No Bugs. Simply Better.
If your area has problems with honey bees, it’s best to contact a professional bee removal expert with the ability to relocate the bees while minimizing any harm to them and to you. Honeybees are a vital part of our ecosystem and protecting them (and you) is important.
Most honey bees are not aggressive unless disturbed, although areas in the southern parts of the United States — like Texas, Florida, and California — are seeing increasing numbers of Africanized honey bees, which are extremely aggressive.
Honey bees generally don’t like to nest in an area that has a lot of traffic from humans or predatory insects. Most honeybees rarely infest homes and prefer to be left alone. The one exception to this is the Africanized honeybee, which is extremely aggressive.
Currently, none of our branches treat honey bees or remove their nests. Since they are a protected species in many states across the country, we rely on honeybee removal experts in many cases.
Find a responsible honey bee removal expert who follows state regulations. Try to preserve the hive and the honey as much as possible.
As the weather gets colder in Northern VA, all the bees in the hive gather together and vibrate their abdomens to make warmth. A few bees will die, even in a strong hive, but native bees are well-equipped to survive the winter.
Body Color and Shape. Wasps have an elongated abdomen, and, usually, bright colors that stand out. Honey bees have a more muted yellow and black or brown appearance and have a more rounded body shape.
Hairs. Honey bees also have a large amount of fine hairs on their body and legs, making them look fuzzy. Few wasps have any hairs, and most have none at all.
Legs. Some honey bees that forage for nectar will also have yellowish clumps (pollen baskets) on their hind legs.
Besides making delicious honey, honey bees are valuable to the environment because they spread pollen between plants. This keeps plants strong and healthy and allows trees and other fruit-bearing plants to produce delicious food.
Africanized honey bees are the product of an experiment in Brazil where a scientist bred wild African honey bees with European honey bees.
After they were bred, Africanized honeybees were accidentally set loose. They spread throughout South America and have reached the southern United States, from Florida to Texas and California.
Africanized honey bees are extremely dangerous because they have large numbers of stinging bees in a single hive that are all willing to attack with little provocation.
If you live in a state with Africanized honey bees, be extremely cautious. In some of our areas, you can contact us to be directed to a trustworthy Africanized honey bee removal expert.

I've had nothing but great service provided by this company. I've had a few different companies drop by and try to sell me on their products and services but this company has a different, more friendly and professional approach I could work with. The prices and deals offered were also too good to pass up and the communication from purchase to first visit has been outstanding.
Tech was extremely kind, personable, and helpful. Totally positive experience!
To ensure our customer's safety, we insist on a thorough screening process for all Fox Pest Control Technicians. They also complete extensive training in the classroom and on the job with an experienced mentor before servicing alone.
