Honey Bee Hive Or Nest Removal

Removing bees should always be done with caution. Proper removal requires specialized gear and tools. Without them, serious damage to the house and the individual removing the bees is possible. Although bees can be killed with insecticides, there are several reasons to consider professional removal.

  • A beehive without bees tending to it will begin to ferment. Eventually, the honey will leak from the hive leaving sticky pools of honey on walls and floors. In hot weather, this process will progress more rapidly.

  • If the bees have nestled their hive into the building’s walls or ceiling, the drywall can fill with moisture and become weak. The honey becomes increasingly difficult to remove and embedded into the walls as it spreads.

  • Failure to remove all honey and decaying bees will attract other unwanted critters such as moths, cockroaches, and rats.

A professional is trained to not only remove the bees but to prevent the area from being reinfested. After a site is cleared of the infestation, it will be attractive to new bees and other animals. It is important that all honey and dead bees are entirely removed. Sealing any open patches will keep the area clean and closed off to unwanted pests. Pest Management, Inc. can recommend resources if additional cleaning services or contractors are required.

Signs of a Bee Infestation

Spotting bees flying in and out of the same location in a building is one of the first signs. As the hive grows larger, a dull and loud buzzing sound can be heard from the hive location. It is common for hives to form in closed-off and hard-to-reach areas like soffits, attics, or ceilings. Even when a beehive is visible and more accessible such as in a tree Pest Management, Inc. still recommends professional help.

Honey Bee Facts

  • In the wrong location, bees can be threatening. Their stings are painful and sometimes life-threatening to those with severe allergies. However, these creatures are extremely beneficial to our environment and our way of living.

  • Honey bees are disappearing across the world. In all possible cases, honey bees should be relocated the bees to safer environments where they can continue doing great things for our environment.

  • Bees help pollinate plants. Not only are bees important pollinators of beautiful flowers but they also are responsible for pollinating the plants that produce fruits and vegetables

  • Farmers can rent bees from beekeepers to help pollinate their crops.

  • Bees live in communities called colonies. Each colony creates its own hive and has its own queen. The bees will follow the queen. Once the queen is found and relocated, the other bees will follow her.

  • Honey is a byproduct of the hive and can be harvested by farmers. Not only is honey a delicious and sweet treat, but it is also full of antioxidants. Honey from your local bees can also help with seasonal allergy symptoms. It’s no surprise that many opt for honey over refined sugar.

The Africanized Honey Bee

The majority of honey bees in the world are Western honey bees. Africanized honey bees are indistinguishable from regular European honey bees aside from being slightly smaller in size. Africanized honey bees are common in the United States, especially in states like Florida, Texas, New Mexico, and California. These bees have coined the term “killer bees” because they are more aggressive and reactive. They are 6 to 10 times more likely to sting than their counterparts. While a few bee stings aren’t life-threatening to an adult without allergies, a high number of bee stings, about 1000, is deadly. If the bees are acting extremely aggressive they could be Africanized honey bees. In which case, a professional like Pest Management, Inc. should always handle the hive.
