Insect Pest Control : How to Get Rid of a Beehive


I’m Trevor with Monster Pest Control, located
in American Fork, UT, today we’re talking about how to rid your home of insects, the
topic is how to get rid of a beehive. Quite often what I do is I go around, inspect the
house, find where the hive is, or where the bees or wasps are coming in and out of the
house. Basically, take some kind of wasp, bee killer and I spray the area and I get
all of the area, making sure I don’t get stung myself, and stand back far enough that you’re
safe. Once I do that, I let it sit for about ten, fifteen, twenty minutes and then I take
my webster, or pole, and I clean off the nest or knock them down. You can use almost anything,
a stick or a pole, whatever, to knock down the nest. If it’s really big, you may want
to hire a professional. Another method to get rid of, or rid your home of bees or wasp,
is by taking a mixture of water and soap, usually about fifty fifty, maybe a little
bit less of the soap, in some spray container and actually spray the nest and that will
also get the wasps or bees to drop down and to die off and then you can clean off the
nest.

  1. What about yellow jackets living under your aluminum siding!!! I can't believe how small they make themselves to crawl between a tiny separation. In fact if I hadn't seen it myself, I would not have believed it. And how big or extensive might it be if you have seen them going in the same area for many summers??
    (omg, I think I am going to be sorry I asked). Outside hives are one thing, but where and what is going on behind the siding???

  2. they swarmed in backyard in about 2 hours! its crazy! their all over my palm tree im trying to smoke them out with incense and burning paper but its working more as a repellant than a bee killer.

  3. He has no idea what he is talking about.
    Spraying bees with poison is a very bad idea.
    He is only describing wasp or hornet nests.
    Colonies of bees build comb in cavernous spaces (they would prefer to be in the hollow of a tree) and thus can't be smacked down with a brush.
    Killing bees inside of a house will result in honey and wax etc stuck behind the walls – and a mess with a host of other pests coming in afterward (ants etc)
    PEOPLE, IGNORE THIS GUY AND FIND A LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO HELP YOU OUT.

  4. lol what a noob! he says "how to get rid of a beehive" and he shows a wasp! leave honey bees alone, idiot! Call a beekeeper so they can be saved!

  5. Please… Just look up on the Inet your nearest bee keeper if a HoneyBee swarm shows up. They are more than happy to come remove them for you for free. Wasps and other critters are different. Mankind would starve were it not for the HoneyBee. They only swarm when they outgrow "population" their current hives.

  6. Poof some Sevin dust in the entrance way early in the morning while the temperature is still cool,as they start they day off comming in,out they will track the dust back to the nest,the poisoning,odor from sevin dust is deadly!!

  7. DON"T DO THIS!!! CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPING ASSOCIATION INSTEAD. THEN THEY WON"T COME BACK AND YOU SAVED A COLONY OF BEES.
