Frequently asked questions about bees, carpenter bees and bumblebee
Q: How to protect my secondary residence from bee swarms. It's been twice what to install behind a shutter, and naturally it makes damage to the wood with honey and it's dangerous for us.
R: I understand and this is unfortunately very common on secondary residences. Bees, bees, beans, bees and we have no solution to suggest you to prevent them from getting settled when you are absent!
Q: I live in the countryside and I have charming neighbors overlooking our pleasant garden "32 bees hives". Following big heats we have installed a swimming pool for children, unfortunately the bees rather enjoy this approach and our area of happiness has turned into a real nightmare, aggressive we can no longer enjoy our garden even without swimming pool!!!
R: Bees are protected insects and they seek water to drink. We have no solution to offer you!
Q: I have a bee swarm installed in my fireplace in the fireplace between the brick and the fireplace. How could I get rid of it without them entering the house? I've got a few of them that came into my basement because my home is downstairs. Is it dangerous to heat the home or could it get them out? Would it be better to wait for winter?
R: I'm going to be having trouble answering you, I'm hardly placing the testm in your duct! One thing is safe, the coming winter, they will take their winter quarters and sleep several months. If you come in, they'll all die. To make them go away and be quiet, you close your driveway with a mosquito net, and you make burn of the branching product that releases a thick smoke, those who will not leave will probably die.
Q: What product to use to permanently get rid of fleshy bees that have chosen home in the wooden beam of our terrace, in the morning we find plenty of sawdust on the tiles. I would like to point out that in 1999 we brought in a company specializing in the treatment of carpenters with injection of this product: XYLOPHENE SOP 2000 CERTIFIE CTB P+, but every year in heat they return.
R: I'm not sure our insecticide will solve your problem. The meat bee in general attacks only woods that are fragile (wet attack and mushrooms). You should check with a nail if your wood is hard or "mou".
Q: I would like to know if your insecticide 4J 10% is effective against flesh bees. If I refer to your advice, I should change my roof, the problem is that it costs very expensive.
R: The bees are not "dangerous" insects, but it is true that they dig nests in rather tender or damaged woods, which can be bothering if you have many! Insecticide 4J diluted to 10% kills freons. So there's no reason why he doesn't kill that kind of bug.
Q: Bumblebees elected home behind my child's room placo. I broke a part of the wall but I can just see their presence without accessing the nest directly. And the roof is too high to mouth access. Even if it is not dangerous and if they are useful, I would like to let them go or prevent them from continuing the development of the nest. What products do you offer to push or destroy svp bumblebees?
R: In repulsive we do not yet have a product for this type of insect. Insecticide, a product like Pistal is very effective but its reach is a few meters.
