Bee on the lookout for the black and yellow army this summer

14 Dec 2016

How can we Help?

The flowers are in bloom and the black and yellow Perth pest army is back in force. Bees are excellent at helping keep your garden alive by delivering pollen from flower to flower. However, when they have a hive near the home they’re not always a met with such enthusiasm.

How to treat a bee sting

Bee stings are never very pleasant and can be deadly if you are highly allergic. If this is the case, calling a pest control specialist is the best way to ensure you remain sting free. If you do get stung, clean the area with soap and water to remove any residual venom, use an icepack to help reduce swelling and take an antihistamine.

Watch out for wasps

Bees are sociable insects largely helping to redistribute the pollen around your garden and making the delicious spread honey as a by-product – wasps are a very different story. Think of them as bees’ very grump relative, as wasps are generally more aggressive. As well as pollen, wasps also collect insect larvae, meat scraps and even small sigh to feed their offspring. While they are naturally good at removing caterpillars and mosquito infestations from your pond, their aggressive nature might be an outdoor deterrent.

What to do if you get stung?

Unlike bees who are stung and done, wasps can sting multiple times making them even more dangerous for people with severe allergies. Possible side effects of multiple wasp stings include muscle breakdown, kidney failure and in some serious cases, death. If you believe you have been stung by a wasp and are experiencing symptoms including swelling, dizziness and difficulty breathing you could be having a severe allergic reaction and should seek medical attention immediately.

Common places to find infestations

If you notice a large number of bees or wasps around your home this could mean you have an infestation. Common places to find beehives or wasp nests are undercover areas such as garages, sheds, attics or alfresco rooves. They may also have set up home in trees or around a compost bin. Use caution around any suspected nest areas to avoid being stung.

Aaron was a real pleasure to work with and i feel significantly more comfortable after working with him. Would recommend their services to anyone who needed them.

I found the young man named Deryn who came to deal with our rodent problem to be extremely polite, personable and knowledgeable. He was on time and friendly and knew a lot about the behaviours of the rat species. I would highly recommend Bug busters and will definately them for future pest problems when they arise.

Sarah Garrett

Bugbusters installed termite traps around my house and shed many years ago. Every 3 months the traps are inspected for any termite activity. At intervals the house, ceiling and shed are are checked for termites. They have also dealt with wasp infestations and put rat baits in the ceiling.. Their operatives have always been helpful and friendly. I would recommend Bugbusters to anyone.
