Bees in Downingtown

While bees might seem scary at first glance, they actually work hard for us every day! A third of all agricultural output in the United States depends on pollination, which is done primarily by bees. So if you are a fan of food, including what you grow at home, you should also be a fan of bees! 

Not all of the bees buzzing around are the same, however. In Pennsylvania alone, there are over 300 different native species who are each unique. Bees in Downingtown include:

  • Carpenter bees: They tunnel through wood to gain access to spaces to build their nests, which can cause minor damage to your home.
  • Miner bees: Rather than up, these bees go down to nest. Each bee creates its own tunnel in the ground, resulting in hundreds of small holes in the soil.
  • Mason bees: Their name comes from how they protect the cells where they lay eggs. A mortar-like application of mud is used to seal off the cell, keeping it nice and safe.
  • Honey bees: Arguably the most well-known, these bees construct their nests in areas where flowering plants are plentiful, like woodlands, orchards, or meadows.

The good news is that all of these bees are unlikely to sting people, so you do not have to be afraid for the safety of your family if you see a nest on your property. Masters Touch wants to BEE responsible and do our very best to protect our pollinators!

Wasp & Hornet Removal in Downingtown

When warm weather comes, you are not the only one who enjoys an outdoor gathering. Wasps and hornets are attracted to the sugars in the food you have on display, zeroing in on the sweets that are their source of energy. They are also more aggressive than bees, stinging with little to no provocation. The threat they pose to humans is greater, making efficient wasp and hornet removal important.

Paper Wasps

Paper wasps are the most common wasp in Pennsylvania, so our wasp exterminators in Downingtown know the ins and outs of their behavior. They create an open nest with hexagonal cells in an umbrella shape, usually in a sheltered area like the eaves of a house, tree branches, or even the open end of a pipe. They get their name through how their nests are built, which involves the queen combining wood fibers and her saliva to create a soft paper pulp that is then shaped into the nest by workers. 

While their colony size is relatively small, ranging from 12 to 100, it is important to leave wasp nest removal in Downingtown to the professionals. If done incorrectly, wasps will perceive the nearby people as threats and begin stinging in an attempt to protect their home. That is why we have wasp exterminators in Downingtown who have been thoroughly trained on how to keep everyone safe throughout the wasp nest removal process.

Hornets

Hornets are a subset of wasps that are larger in size and live in large, highly organized colonies. Each species likes to create their nests in different places, so a proper inspection by one of our wasp exterminators in Downingtown is necessary for proper removal. The most common nesting sites include:

  • Attics
  • Treetops
  • Hollow tree trunks
  • Under the edge of roofs
  • Underground in abandoned rodent burrows

Like wasps, hornets will attack threats to their colony, which is why hornet nest removal in Downingtown should never be attempted on your own. Unlike wasps, hornet nests can house thousands of workers, creating an impressive swarm when they have to be protective. The professional hornet exterminators in Downingtown at Masters Touch Pest Solutions have the gear and products needed for safe hornet removal, which is why you should leave the hard work to them instead of attempting it yourself.
