Individual Customer Reviews:
Service Performed: Jim rid our place of yellow jackets that started to appear IN our house. How did he help? By attacking the problem from the inside and out.
Overall Experience: Excellent experience. He arrived timely, remedied the problem, was pleasant, was polite he was the real deal - a professional.
Service Performed: The Bee Hunter found the location (siding and eave) for both yellow jackets and wasps and effectively treated these areas. A contractor at the time was doing some outside work, but was under attack for the yellow jackets. This treatment allowed the work to continue and get completed in a timely way.
Overall Experience: Overall experience was very good. A big plus was the same day response, with the work being done in a professional and effective manner.
Service Performed: Jim visited my home after my unscuccessful attempt to tackle the wasp/yellow jacket infestation. By this time, I had spent four weeks and three cans of Wasp Spray to no avail. The wasps were entering my house in the cement block and inside my home in the walls. (These wasps were obviously laughing at me). Jim diagnosed and explained within minutes his plan to exterminate. Jim patiently answered my unending stream of questions and when I asked Jim if he liked bees or hated bees, his answer was "Neither...I solve problems". Who wouldn't want Jim on their team? I'll absolutely call again and offer his name to my friends and family. Thanks, Jim!
Overall Experience: EXCELLANT EXPERIENCE. Couldn't ask for any better service. Jim was prompt, productive and left me and my backyard with peace of mind.
Scott Township, Pittsburgh PA
Service Performed: I was experiencing a problem with bumblebees in my backyard. They were very aggressive and stung both my dog and me. The Bee Hunter arrived at my house and within minutes found not one hive, but 2 hives in my backyard. Jim took care of both hives and told me they would all be gone within a week. I am very happy to say all the bees are gone and my dog now has her whole yard back. And, I no longer have to run with the lawn mower trying not to get stung!!
Overall Experience: Jim is very professional, arrives when he says he will, and does excellent work!! The Bee Hunter is very attentive and works very fast.
Service Performed: I had a wasp nest in the light fixture on my deck. I called Jim, left a message and he returned my call right away. I did have to wait a few days because we had to synchronize our schedules. The deck is elevated and only accessible by going through my home. He met me in the evening after work and had the whole situation taken care of within 30 minutes. Very happy with the service.
Overall Experience: Excellent work, great service. Jim is very nice, very professional and very knowledgeable.
Service Performed: Removed a Yellow Jacket nest on the steps from our deck to the backyard and treated the porch railing for wasp hives. He was fast, efficient. Haven't had a problem in those areas since.

Service Performed: Removal of a Bald Faced Hornet Nest above our driveway. We called late on a Friday and the problem was handled by Monday.
Overall Experience: This is the second time we've reached out to the Bee Hunter for help. This call out was to remove a Bald Faced Hornet Nest that was growing over our driveway. Jim responded quickly, took care of the issue and even took the time to educate the kids on the hornets in terms of how they grow and live. Highly recommend Jim for his prompt response and professional approach to his work. Thanks again. Taki and Argy Darakos, South Fayette

Service Performed: 2015 - two yellow jackets nests on the exterior of the home.
Overall Experience: We have utilized Jim's service multiple times over the past few years and have been nothing but satisfied with the quality of the work, professionalism, and the promptness of the responses for a service calls. Based on our history of bee issues, earlier this year we utilized his preventative maintenance option and have had no issues all season. We strongly recommend the Bee Hunter.

Overall Experience: I am so happy and pleased with this service and highly recommend!!!
Service Performed: Jim came out for our now-annual prevention treatment, which works like magic! We live in the hills of Sewickley in a heavily wooded area. Prior to meeting Jim, we had terrible problems with carpenter bees that literally destroyed a wooden mailbox and were drilling holes in our wooden deck, which we couldn't use for fear of the bees, wasps and hornets; we had a hornet's nest the size of basketball and two smaller ones; in-ground yellow jackets; and every type of wasp you can imagine, many of whom made their way INSIDE our house! Three years ago, we hired the Bee Hunter. He removed the hornet's nest, yellow jacket nests and wasp nests and wiped out the carpenter bees! He treated our house inside and out and the wasps, hornets, yellow jackets and bees were gone. We now hire the Bee Hunter to apply a preventive treatment each year, and it works like magic. No more stinging insects. We can enjoy our deck again!
Overall Experience: Exceptional professional work performed in a responsive, timely manner. If anyone has a bee issue this is the only person you need to call.

Overall Experience: Great - -so glad I called him and not a national chain.
Service Performed: Removed nasty yellow jackets from inside home walls.
Overall Experience: The Bee Hunter was very prompt, professional, and pollenated (just kidding on the last one). He rearranged his buzzzzy schedule to get out to our house when the yellow jackets ate a hole through our drywall. He took care of the issue in minutes. This was the second time we used the Bee Hunter. Two years ago, he climbed through our basement rafters to remove some hornets that liked to live in our crawlspace. Would highly recommend him for all of your stinging pest removal and to your unmarried sister in-law.
Service Performed: We utilized the Bee Hunter's service a few years ago to remove two outside yellow jacket nests. He was punctual and professional and we were very satisfied with his services. Recently, on a Friday afternoon at 5 PM, I stumbled across a yellow jacket nest in my basement. As I pulled the insulation away I split the nest in half sending bee's throughout my basement. Fortunately I had Jim's cell number programmed into my phone. I called him and he was able to adjust his schedule and arrived within 45 minutes. He successfully removed the nest and killed all of the bee's. Jim is very knowledgeable and good at what he does. Hand's down he is "Best in Class" for bee issues in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
Overall Experience: Exceptional professional work performed removing our indoor nest. If anyone has a bee issue this is the only person you need to call. He will bend over backwards to support his customers as he knows how stressful a bee infestation can be. We are 110% satisfied with his service.
Service Performed: I had several yellow jackets nests in the ground at my home for the last 2 years. I called the Bee Hunter who was very professional and obviously well trained in his field. He explained what he was going to do and instructed me to be careful with my dog around the treated area for at least 24hrs.I know I could not have gotten rid of all the bees myself and am thankful I made the call to Jim. He also gave me preventative measures for next year.
Overall Experience: I could not be happier with my overall experience with The Bee Hunter. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with bee issues. Thank you Jim!
Service Performed: Carpenter Bees and Wasps
Overall Experience: The Bee Hunter is a wonderful professional. He was responsive and prompt. I asked for service, after noticing wasps in my kids' bedrooms, and he dispatched them very rapidly. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs stinging insects gone!
Upper St. Clair
Service Performed: The yellow jacket hives were inside the ground behind a rock retaining wall. Jim carefully removed each heavy stone in order to extract the hives. He scraped each stone clean before reconstructing the wall and swept up each bit of dirt from the sidewalk. He put up caution tape so pedestrians wouldn't get stung. In the past, he has also successfully removed hives from the wall of the home and a hole in the ground. These hives were really big and, after seeing them, it was clear to me that a can of spray from the local hardware store would never do the trick. It is well worth it to have Jim out and get it done right.
Overall Experience: We wouldn't have anyone but Jim to help with our yellow jacket problem. Jim is absolutely meticulous, professional, and very personable. We live near Frick Park so yellow jackets are a yearly issue for us (six hives in two summers!). This is the second year we've called on Jim and each time he has done a fabulous job.He even came out on a Sunday morning! He was also so kind to my son, taking time to show him his truck and tools. We really appreciate Jim and the excellent business he runs. Thanks Jim!
Service Performed: I had active wasp nests in multiple locations around the outside of my house. The Bee Hunter showed up when he said he would. He charged me the price that he quoted me over the phone. He noticed more nests than I originally saw and took care of those as well. He is a professional. What more could anyone ask for?
Overall Experience: See above

Service Performed: Had Jim remove a Yellow Jacket's nest the size of a small watermelon from under the eave of my roof.
Overall Experience: Jim took care of business with precision and was very calculated with his methods and practices. Quite impressed with his work ethic and his approach to business. Enjoyed talking to him and learning from him as he worked.
Service Performed: I had Yellow Jackets underneath my back deck under my grill. The Bee Hunter surprised me by coming out that very evening and removing a nest the size of a volleyball. They had been there since spring and I didn't even know it. He treated the area to ensure that they weren't coming back.
Overall Experience: He was kind, professional and great with my dogs! He was informative and explained preventative services that he offers in the spring. I was worried about my pets and children getting stung by those Yellow Jackets! But Jim was fast and efficient. Thank you, Bee Hunter!

09/14/2015 & 05/02/2016
Service Performed: We had yellow jackets buzzing around on our patio. The Bee Hunter came quickly and found that they were not only on the patio, but had also nested in an inside wall of our house. He assessed the situation, suited up, and removed the nest. His work was very neatly done. We could not have asked for a better job.
Overall Experience: Our overall experience with the Bee Hunter was
Service Performed: In 2015 I had a problem at home with yellow jackets building a nest under the roof line and recently a swarm of bees moved between the floors. The BeeHunter was prompt with a return phone call and the service to remove the problem occurred within 1-3 days of our conversation. Swift and clean. 100% satisfaction on guaranteed work. Including the a sense of humor.
Overall Experience: Very professional from the timely return of my calls to providing the work. Educated me on what was going on with the bees and the methods of addressing the situation.
Service Performed: I called Jim on July 16, 2016 after finding a hornet nest in the awning of my bedroom. Jim made an effort and came the same day. The hornets were banging into the window and were very agitated. Jim explained that they were angry because the nest was above the air conditioning unit and the hot air blowing up caused them to be aggravated. Jim put on his safety equipment and quickly took care of the problem. He then treated the awning so they would not try to rebuild. He also looked at the rest of the house to see if there were any other nests or conditions that could become an issue. He is very thorough and I would recommend him to anyone. It was very interesting to learn about the hornets and the nest they built. Thanks Jim for taking care of the problem so quickly!!!
Overall Experience: As I said above Jim is the best and his work is Quality Plus!!!

Service Performed: I phoned Jim and expressed concerns about yellow jackets entering my house and flying near an area by the roof. He came to my home the next day and confirmed what the issue was and took care of it immediately. This involved utilizing his protective suit/gear, climbing a ladder to the second floor exterior of the house, and spraying a substance into the entrance of the yellow jackets' hive. It was likely hidden in an interior wall just behind a gutter area. The problem was resolved. Thanks!

Overall Experience: Jim's face should appear in the dictionary next to the word professional! He exemplifies the service industry. He is prompt, up front, courteous, professional and knows what he is doing. We discovered another nest a few days later and again he immediately returned at no charge to finish off the problem. It is very refreshing to know there are still honest people willing to work at their craft.

Service Performed: We had a yellow jacket nest in the ground. Jim dug the entire nest out of the ground to remove it and used what looked to us like gas to take care of the problem. The process only took 35-40 minutes and by the next day, the bees were gone.
Overall Experience: I emailed Jim at 8pm on Saturday of Labor Day weekend and he called me within a couple of minutes. After quickly and correctly identifying the problem based on just my description, Jim said he'd be out the next day to take care of the problem. In the morning, he texted with an ETA and was here exactly when he said he'd be here. Jim talked us through the whole process, was very professional, and handled our problem expertly. The entire nest is gone and so are all of the bees! I'd recommend The Bee Hunter to anyone with a bee problem and we'll certainly call him if anything like this happens again!
Service Performed: I had a nest of yellow jackets under the pavement
Overall Experience: Jim was a lifesaver. He came immediately. Did
Service Performed: Removal of yellow jackets and nest in ceiling.
Overall Experience: Jim was prompt, professional, and competent and an all around nice guy. He looks over the situation then explains everything he will do and how much it will cost. He was here an hour and the bees and hive are gone. It's almost like he can see through the wall. He listened and felt the wall and cut open a small piece out of the ceiling and the nest was right there. Amazing. I can't wait until someone I know has a bee problem just so I can recommend Jim, the Bee Hunter.

Overall Experience: Jim is a true professional at what he does. We reached out to him via e-mail on a Sunday night and our hornet/yellow jacket issues were taken care of by Monday evening. He called timely, explained what we could expect and made it a point to come out the same day of the call. He even took the time with our kids to talk about bees, racoons, and other animals. I would recommend "The Bee Hunter" for any job big or small.

Then over a one week period they did so much damage we were on the verge of structural damage. Thanks for coming out so quickly and eliminating our problem. We will see you next spring for the preventive treatment.

Service Performed: Jim removed a football size nest of agitated yellow jackets from the 2nd story gutter.
Overall Experience: This wasn't a DIY! I noticed the nest some weeks ago, when it looked like a big marble. There was little activity so I ignored it. I noticed it again when I suddenly heard lots of noisy swarming over the garage doors! It was too scary for me to tackle.
Service Performed: He removed a yellow jacket nest from my lawn.
Overall Experience: I called the Bee Hunter after finding a ground nest in my yard. He was very prompt (despite me saying no hurry), gave me a rough ETA and then a firm time when en route.

South Fayette Twp
Service Performed: Removal of wood boring bees.
Overall Experience: The Bee Hunter was able to fit us in the next day. He came and removed the wood bees from our wood trim and even showed them to the kids! He was very clear about what he needed to do and how he was going to do the work. He also took care to make sure the space was safe for pets and humans to occupy. I highly recommend his work.
Service Performed: We have used Jim every year since 2009. Quite simply, he is awesome! We first met Jim when we had a Yellow Jacket infestation in a previous house. From that moment on, he became our "go to" guy for keeping our house bee free (he comes to treat the house every year)! When we moved into our new house, once again, Jim was there to remove some carpenter bees. Every time Jim visits, he goes above and beyond in service to ensure the job is done right. Jim is the best Bee Hunter in the business - we wouldn't think of using anyone else.
Overall Experience: The "buzz" about Jim is true, he does a fantastic job for our family! He is professional, reliable, and does great work.
Joe and Amanda
Service Performed: Sprayed entire perimiter of the house as well as the attic to protect against bee/wasp infestations.
Overall Experience: Professional and thorough. Explained every aspect of the chemical application.
Service Performed: Complete treatment inside and out of the house for wasps and other flying menaces.
Overall Experience: We have used Jim's services EVERY YEAR since 2008 when we had a very unexpected and very frighteningly large invasion of yellow jackets in the wall just above our front door. We 'happened upon' him, I think via the Yellow Pages at the time and what a blessing! He came almost immediately in response to our frantic call, quickly discovered the situation, and in the cleanest, most humane, and most professional way, got close to 7,000 yellow jackets out of the nests they had built in our wall! It was a scene from a scary movie to see the number of potential stingers dropping out of the wall. When it was all done, he left the house in the most pristine condition, nary a carcass to be found.
Service Performed: We had Jim The Bee Hunter spray our deck in May as a preventative measure as last year we had carpenter bees in the cedar. It is definitely working! This morning we came out to find several dead Japanese beetles laying on the porch carpet. We never had that issue before and it was wonderful to know they aren't crawling under our porch ceiling!
Overall Experience: We have had The Bee Hunter to our home 3 times and each time it has been a favorable experience. A few years ago he safely removed a large hornets nest in our front tree. Last year he sprayed our deck porch to get rid of carpenter bees that were making nests. We had no further issues after his application.

Service Performed: Sprayed and removed wasps from my basement.
Overall Experience: We had over 4 dozen queen wasps hibernating under the wood beams in our basement! The Bee Hunter was awesome! He came the same day and right on time. He was able to spray and remove all of the wasps without further evedince of any returning. He is a great guy. He was very courteous and polite. I would recommend him to anyone.
Service Performed: We had yellow jackets entering through our siding and were nesting inside the walls in one of our bedrooms. The Bee Hunter identified the location of the nest, treated the area of entry as well as the area where the nest was, and then removed the nest from the wall. And the service performed was successful as we no longer have a yellow jacket problem in our house.
Overall Experience: Jim was very professional, polite and friendly. His knowledge and experience was very evident by watching him work. He also took the time to explain the problems he discovered as well as the services he was recommending thoroughly. And the Bee Hunter took the time to answer questions my 4 year old had for him and even let me take a picture in his bee suit with my son. He was also very kind and playful with our dog (whose name was also Hunter). Thank you for the kind and expert services you provided.
Service Performed: I was doing some yard work and found a Yellow Jacket ground nest under a bush the hard way. After investigating various DIY and professional remedies, I decided to call The Bee Hunter to do away with the Yellow Jackets and their nest. He was able to remove the wasps and their nest without killing the plants. It is 2 months later and they have not returned.
Overall Experience: Jim arrived on time, assessed the problem, explained what he needed to do and how much the cost would be. He also explained his guarantee, and put everything in writing. And yes, he was covered head to toe in the classic white bee suit. He got to work, and in short order, he was done. He was friendly, personable and happily answered my questions.

Overall Experience: Jim came on time and did the job quickly and professionally. friendly and reasonable.
Service Performed: Removed a hornet nest above my garage on 5/26/14.
Overall Experience: I have used the Bee Hunter's services twice this year. He came the same day when I had a hornet's nest over my garage. I contacted him last week because I had several yellow jackets in my window. I was amazed at how he felt the wall and knew exactly where the nest was located. He exterminated the bees and gave great instructions. I really appreciate his services and would recommend him to anyone who needs bee removal services!
Service Performed: Yellow jackets were present under a bush that was one of many in a large hedge. They were entering the ground at the base of the bush. This being next to the driveway--and close to the house as well-- was a problem for anyone using the driveway and in the vicinity.
Overall Experience: As noted above, The Bee Hunter is truly perfection both in his profession as well as in his business approach! Very timely communication and excellent demeanor.
Service Performed: Removal of yellow jacket nest inside an exterior wall of the house
Overall Experience: Based on an experience 3 years ago in ridding yellow jackets, I called on Jim again to take care of another apparent yellow jacket problem. He was responsive and kept us apprised of his ETA. Once here, he quickly identified the problem and addressed it quickly. Within a day of his work, there were no more signs of these pesky insects. Because of his workmanship and professional demeanor, I have mentioned the Bee Hunter to others. The buzz is . . . he knows his stuff.
Upper St. Clair
Service Performed: The date above is my most recent experience with The Bee Hunter. I have had to call him every year for the last three years and am so pleased with his service I wouldn't call anyone else. Evidently yellow jackets love us in Penn Hills! The most recent call was for yellow jackets behind a retaining wall in my daughter's driveway. We were afraid my grandchildren would be stung so of course we called Jim, The Bee Hunter. He is always very kind and does the job right. I could not be at my daughter's house because of a doctor's appointment, but he came and took care of the problem right away. That is another thing I like about him, he responds to your calls right away and is there when he says he will be. Last year at our house, I literally stepped on a hornet's nest in the ground under our raised deck,(picture a grandma with hornets stuck in her legs running up a driveway screaming), I still cringe at the remembrance and that was taken care of as professionally as the ones under the front bushes the year before. All I can say is The Bee Hunter is thorough and professional, I wouldn't mess with the rest, I call the best-The Bee Hunter!!!
Overall Experience: You can read about my overall experience above, but I couldn't have a better experience with a service. He is professional, responsive, punctual and easy to talk to. Before I called him the first time, I called a few others and even on the phone they were not as responsive, that is how I ended up with The Bee Hunter and as I said now I wouldn't call anyone else.

Service Performed: Jim removed an underground yellow jacket nest behind a retaining wall next to the driveway. It is a single width drive and the hive entrance was at head level on the passenger side if you parked in the driveway-very dangerous.

Overall Experience: Jim was very courteous, knowledgeable and professional. He patiently answered all my questions, was concerned for my safety-I wanted to watch and was too close-he showed me to a safe area and went back to his work. He had to take part of my wall apart and even fixed it when he was done!

Service Performed: We built a porch on the back of our house last year, and this summer we were watching bees go through a crack where the beam went into the house.

The quality of work done is easily noticeable and he will take his time explaining anything and everything. No question will go unanswered.
