One of the signs of summer in Texas, and throughout the eastern U.S., is the cicada killer. Over the past month or two you may have noticed dime-sized holes appearing in your yard or garden. While many insects (beetles and ants, for example) dig holes, few are so conspicuous as the cicada killer wasp, Sphecius speciosus.

What do Bee's Eat in Texas?
Honey bees collect nectar and convert it to honey. The majority of honey bee larvae eat honey, but larvae that are chosen to become future queens will be fed with royal jelly. Royal jelly is a white secretion produced by young, female worker bees. It is comprised of pollen and chemicals from the glands of worker bees.
Distinguishing between a bee and wasp can be tricky at times, but here are some simple characteristics to differentiate between the two:
Live Honeybee Swarm Pick-Up in DFW
Bees hibernate in the winter and swarm every spring. This means the beehive has grown too large and when a new queen hatches, she will take part of the hive and leave to find a new home. This process is called swarming and is prevalent in early spring. Bees love to burrow inside trees and in the attics and eaves of homes. Often times, they will stop to rest on a tree branch before continuing on to find shelter. When a swarm is exposed, we will always take it alive and maintain it at a safe location or pass it on to a local Bee Farm. Ask us how to buy honey.
Full Hive Removal in Dallas- Fort Worth
A full hive removal is usually only necessary if your bee infestation has occurred within 4-6 weeks. However in the summer months, bees work quickly and we often see honey inside the space after just 1 week. Sometimes, bees will inhabit a structure for long periods of time. In these cases, the bees have built up a substantial amount of wax, honey and larvae( up to 1 pound everyday). If the bees are eliminated and the hive is left inside the structure, not only will the wax and honey melt, causing possible damage to the inside of your home, but it draws numerous pests. We always recommend a hive removal or cleanup whenever honey is present.

Yellow Jackets in DFW
European and Southern yellow jackets are smaller than honeybees, but differ because they are hairless, very fast and feed on other insects instead of flowers. They also have a very painful bite in addition to their ability to sting repeatedly. You’ll notice them more in the fall and they are commonly found in woodpiles, burrowed in the ground or in the little weep holes around your home.
Wasps in DFW
Wasps are large reddish insects with a painful sting. They like to hibernate for the winter in your chimney, attic and eaves of your home. They are a real nuisance in the spring, summer and fall months.
Carpenter Bees in DFW
Most species of Carpenter Bees in Dallas- Fort Worth are entirely black. They prefer to make their nests in old wooden objects that are unpainted or unstained. They will tunnel into roof eaves and overhangs, window sills, railings, fences, bamboo, even lawn furniture. Carpenter bees do not eat the wood. They will use it to build partitions in their nests then discard the rest. One can identify a Carpenter Bee problem by the little piles of sawdust around the entrance to their nest.
