Connecticut’s Choice For Bee Control & Bee Removal Services

Richland Pest & Bee has completed the Pollinator Awareness certification through the National Pest Management Association. Chemicals applied professionally by Richland Pest & Bee are aligned with preserving pollinator habitats. Whenever possible, we try to focus on repelling and preventing bees as opposed to eliminating them. See more information regarding our annual Bee Barrier prevention treatments below. 

If you have a stinging insect problem, call us. We’ll inspect your property, locate the nest or hive and identify the species. Our trained professionals can offer solutions for safely relocating honey bees to help protect beneficial pollinators and eliminate dangerous pests like hornets or wasps, leaving you with a safe home environment.

Bee Prevention for Your Home or Business

Richland Pest & Bee Control delivers our Bee Barrier prevention services in the beginning of the nesting season in spring and early summer. We treat wood, aluminum and vinyl structures in order to repel carpenter bees and wasps by applying a safe liquid application. We place the pesticide in targeted areas that are most likely to be impacted by wood destroying insects, which means we avoid areas that are attractive to pollinators. 

The chemical is placed in areas where wood destroying insects and stinging insects are searching to nest. We can not stop them from coming onto your property, in the same fashion, we can not and will not prohibit pollinators from pollinating plants on your property. We will also inspect your structure during the treatment application to look out for nests or hives that may have already formed on or around walls, ceilings, or other cracks and crevices. 

Honeybee Swarming and Relocation

If we find honeybee nests on the premise of your property during inspection, we will halt treatment immediately and refer you to our friends at Hilltop Apiaries for safe relocation of the bees. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been working diligently to protect bees and other pollinators from the harmful effects of neonicotinoids. The chemical that we use in our Bee Barrier application is in the pyrethrin family of pesticides, and does not fall into the neonicotinoid category. Pyrethroids are manmade versions of pyrethrins, which are derived from chrysanthemum flowers.  We take pollinator protection very seriously at Richland, and for that reason, we do not treat near any apiaries, bodies of water, the tops of flowering plants, fruit-bearing plants, or vegetable gardens. 

Our technicians are licensed and trained to perform pesticide treatments in accordance with their safety information and labels, and will utilize that knowledge in the field to identify any potential safety hazards prior to treating. We also provide our customers with detailed instructions prior to treatment in order to give them as much knowledge as we can to result in a safe and effective application of pesticides. If you think you may have a honeybee swarm on your property, we would be happy to refer you to a CT beekeeper, or you can look up more information by searching on the Connecticut Beekeepers Association website.
