Fox Pest Control provides top-rated, affordable bee removal services in Pittsburgh and the surrounding area. Bee season comes every year in Pittsburgh without fail. It’s important to control bees early so they don’t take over your outdoor space each summer. If you find a bee nest, it can be dangerous to try to remove it yourself. Hire a professional to exterminate them for you.
Having a professional Pittsburgh bee control company near you address the situation is always the safest route to remove the bees.

You might already know that you have a bee problem (maybe you found this page by Googling “bee removal near me”). Here are a couple of the most common signs of a bee infestation in Pittsburgh.
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 Pittsburgh are either honeybees or a type of wasp (which are often mistaken for bees).
Your technician will conduct a thorough bee inspection of your home/property and provide a customized bee treatment plan that will be most effective for your situation.
You will receive a detailed report of the service provided and helpful recommendations to remain bee free.
We come back regularly throughout the year to ensure the bees don’t come back. If you see any bee activity between your regularly-scheduled service, simply give us a call. We’ll come back for free!

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 Pittsburgh, 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.
