Bees, Wasps, Hornets

There are a wide variety of stinging insects – some dangerous, some beneficial. Call 800 CRITTER to control bees, wasps, hornets, etc.

  • Africanized "killer" bees looks so much like a regular honeybee that the only way to tell the two apart is by measuring their bodies. Africanized bees have different wing measurements than honeybees.
  • Bumble bees are beneficial insects because they pollinate crops and plants.
  • Carpenter bees look like typical bumblebees but often lack yellow stripes. They are solitary bees.
  • Cicada killers are not aggressive but can sting. Their size usually scares people. Their activity is most visible in the spring of the year after the larvae develop and emerge from the nest they can be found in gardens feeding on pollen.
  • Honey bees are social insects found all over the world. They are an extremely important beneficial insect because of their role in pollination. Honey bees pollinate more than 100 crops in the U.S. Honey bee hive removal can be very complicated if in the walls.
  • Hornets and wasps are insects feared by most people. Many people die every year as a result of being stung AND having severe allergic reactions to that sting. Wasps and hornets can be very aggressive. They live in colonies and are generally brightly colored, fairly large insects. One wasp can sting several times in an attack. It is important to avoid them and to be able to identify which one you may have. They nest in many locations in the ground, in trees and tree holes, and inside or on buildings.
  • Mud daubers are solitary wasps making a variety of different type nests. They use mud to make nests and supply food usually spiders to the developing larvae.
  • Yellow jackets are generally black and yellow in color and 1 1/2 inches long. Their nests may become very large with hundreds to even thousands of individuals living in holes in the ground, walls, etc.

Goose Round-Ups/Management

With wild goose populations at an all time high, Critter Control has developed a number of techniques to not only control population, but to also remove resident geese from properties.  Critter Control works closely with local wildlife officials to effectively round up and remove large groups of nuisance geese. 

Harassment techniques oftentimes can help to reduce local populations of geese and repellents may also be used on turf to deter geese from feeding and loafing.  Droppings from geese can create an unsightly mess and stain sidewalks and driveways. They also pose a threat to public health and safety by chasing people during nesting season.  Contact Critter Control today to learn more about safe and effective goose management programs at 1-800-CRITTER.

Solar Panel Barriers

Solar panels are a tremendous source of energy generation. They’re clean, they’re green, and they’re popping up on institutional, commercial and residential roofs at an ever-increasing rate.

Unfortunately, they also make fantastic homes for various forms of wildlife. Raccoons, squirrels, rats and birds frequently take advantage of the natural cover provided by solar panels for protection from predators and the elements.

Each critter that takes up residence under your solar panels creates various and significant concerns for the owner of the panels and structure:

  • Raccoons have been known to use the protection of the panels to work a hole through the shingles and roof board and literally drop right into the interior attic space.
  • Birds can create a considerable mess and a real health risk with their nesting materials and abundant feces.
  • Squirrels have a propensity to chew on wiring. Not only will they build nests and have babies under your panels, they can also create the need for costly repairs to get your system restored.

Critter Control has developed WILDLIFE SOLAR BARRIERS to provide an affordable solution to this problem. We offer an entirely screwless system that covers the perimeter of your solar installation and prevents unwanted pests from making their homes on your home.

The system is specifically designed to keep wildlife from accessing the underside of solar panels, thus protecting the wiring and equipment from damage. In addition, it will also prevent physical damage that rodents can cause to the roofing materials and roof structure.

Call us today for an estimate and further details on this must have solution for every solar panel owner.
