3 Signs You Might Have a Bee Infestation Problem
Bees are essential to the health and proper balance of the earth’s ecosystem. That’s because they perform an important task called pollination. What is pollination? Pollination is the transference of pollen from the male flower to the female flower of the same species. Bees are among the best at facilitating this movement of pollen between flowers. As a result, bees are often referred to as “pollinators”. Honey bees also offer the additional benefit of making honey that we humans enjoy eating.
Though bees are important to our world, when they infest a home, it can become a problem from both a safety standpoint as well as a financial one.
From a safety perspective, bee stings can not only be painful, but possibly life threatening for those who are allergic to bee sting venom.
From a financial perspective, a bee infestation can results in expensive structural damage when bees build their nest within the walls, attic or eves of your home.
When you first notice that you may have a bee infestation problem in your home, call a professional bee removal service. They have the knowledge, skill and experience to correctly resolve your bee issue.
But how can the average person tell whether they have a bee infestation problem?
Here are 3 signs you may have a bee infestation problem.
Have you recently noticed more bees in and around your home than in Summers past?
If so, this is a pretty good indication that you might have a bee infestation. Typically, homeowners will notice that bees are flying and/or buzzing inside or more frequently around the exterior of their home than in years past.
When you see many more bees in and around your home than usual, this typically is a sign that there is a beehive nearby. An easy way to determine if there is a beehive nearby is to track where these bees are traveling to in and around your home. You may see them gathering and crawling into a crack or crevice near your roof, for example.
Do you see a beehive near or around your home?
You may actually end up discovering a beehive somewhere on your property or near your home. When this occurs, try to observe if bees are actively flying to and from it.
When there is a lot of activity from a bee hive, please DO NOT disturb it, or you could end up getting attacked. Instead, call a bee removal professional.
Are there any strange or unusual dark spots on your home’s walls?
If you notice that there are dark spots (that weren’t previously there) on any of the walls (or even ceiling) of your home, this may be an indication that you have a bee infestation. Why? That’s because honey bees will build a nest within the inside of your home’s walls and because the beehive’s cells of honey are leaking out into your walls. It goes without saying that honey seeping out is not good for the wood studs and drywall.
