Unlike the European honey bee, the Africanized bee can be easily aggravated. The killer bee has been on a journey from South America to North America since 1957. The first reported case in the USA was in 1990 by early 90′s the reached Arizona, and moving at a rate of 200 miles per year you would think they would have overwhelmed the continent by now. Their expansion rate has been drastically reduced thanks to professional bee control companies who have crews specializing in bee control
There are three major steps to follow in completely controlling bees. If a company does not offer one of these three, then they are risking damage to your home as well as harm to you.
