Consultation of bee

Last update date June 14, 2019

Bee becomes representative of "scary insect" "pest", but there is one side of "beneficial insect" which catches pests such as hairy caterpillars of the trees and plants, and eats.
In addition, bee does not sting people all the time. We do threat, attack to follow their nests and commands.
Even if bee flies, let's watch calmly quietly.

However, you should get rid of nest when hideout is done near our life range not to be stabbed.
In Health and Welfare Center, we perform guidance of the extermination method and exterminator.

Early detection, the early extermination!

As for paper wasp and the hornet, activity becomes popular most from summer to autumn. Bee of the time has many numbers, and it is said that the aggressiveness increases.
However, security can relatively get rid of hive cheaply as there are few numbers of bee which is in den over June from the end of April when the Queen wrath of Heaven begins to make nest if we can discover nest at this time.

From around the end of April, let's check rotations of house well.
