The Risks from Failing to Address a Bee Hive Infestation

Neglecting or failing to address a bee hive infestation can become a costly and messy problem, particularly when bees build a hive within the structure of your home.

So, the best way to avoid such headaches is to immediately remove the bees and their hive from your home. Additionally, its recommended to bee proof your home (especially, the area where bees had been entering your home) to prevent re-infestation.

Thus, the worst thing you could do would be to ignore your bee infestation issue, because it will only get worse over time.

Why It is Important to Remove the Hive and not just the Bees

Removing bees from your home without also removing their hive is a big mistake. Particularly, when the hive is older, this could be very troublesome.  Here are a few reasons why you should always have the Beehive removed when doing a bee removal.


When you only remove the bees from your home and leave their hive, it is likely that you will have a reinfestation of bees. Why? Bees are drawn to the pheromones and the hive materials themselves, so leaving the hive intact, will result in reinfestation.

Attracts Other Pests

Rodents and insects, such as ants are attracted to abandoned hives leading to infestation.

Damage to Your Home

Particularly during the intensely hot Summer months in the Phoenix, AZ metro area, bee hives that are not removed, can result damage to the structure of your home when the hive melts. Additionally, inactive/neglected bee hives will decompose, leaving unpleasant odors to be emitted from where the hive is located.
