Essential Pest Control has a highly trained staff of bee removal experts. While most people appreciate the role bees play in the environment, Africanized bees are an invasive species that is not native to our desert environment. Our hot environment is ideal, which leads to an explosive population growth of an aggressive species that forces out native bee populations, thus needing control and eradication.
Bee activities often are in close proximity to humans, situations can arise that cause them to attack. This presents serious health concerns and liability for property owners.

This species of wasp can be aggressive and territorial. Known for their upside-down umbrella nests and nasty reputation, these wasps’ populations can start small, but over time nests can multiply quickly. Unlike bees, wasps can sting continuously without dying. Nests can often be hidden in eaves, outdoor light fixtures, or hidden from view under palm fronds and other vegetation.
The larger black bees flying around your home can cause considerable damage to Arizona homes. These insects, although not aggressive, weaken exposed wood structures in which they bore holes and tunnels to lay eggs, hence the nickname carpenter bee. If left untreated, carpenter bees can erode the integrity of the wood, leading to expensive repairs down the road.
Africanized Honey Bees
Africanized Honey Bees are by far the largest threat to humans and pets. Killer bees were relocated from Africa to South and Central America where they have migrated northward, reaching the Tucson area in 1991. Africanized Honey Bees are desirable for breeders due to positive characteristics that include assertive mating habits, higher honey production, more frequent swarming and the aggressive defense of their colonies.
However, the aggressive nature of the species has led to them be overwhelming and dominate any Honey Bee or other native species. The aggressiveness of Africanized Honey Bees has also resulted in them being labeled as “Killer Bees” due to their ferocious assault on anyone or anything that threatens their hive. Cases have occurred where hundreds and thousands of bees have ascended on people and animals that died as a result of their stings.
Africanized Bees seek to establish their hives in large void areas that are protected. Small gaps in building construction allow access to wall and ceiling voids that are ideal nesting places for Africanized Honey Bees. Due to the aggressive nature of Africanized Bees, it is important that you have a specialist such as Essential Pest Management provide your bee control in Tucson.
