Why do Bees keep coming back to my home and what can I do about it?

A common question from residents in the Phoenix metro area is why bees continue to come back to their home every year.

Although this can be annoying, especially after having paid a pest control company to remove them the year before, we’ll give you some insight as to why this occurs.

Signs that bees have returned to your home

When you notice that there is an uptick in bee activity in and around your home, whether near the roof or a window, this is typically an indication that bees have returned.

Ways to Prevent Bees from Returning to Your Home

Bee Proof Your Home

Bees are remarkable when it comes to finding ways to enter your home. Usually, bees can gain access to your home via a through a very small opening such as a small crack around a door frame, wall or window. In such cases, it is best to contact a professional bee removal service who are familiar with common entry points for bees and how to successfully prevent future access by bees.

Get rid of items that attract bees

It seems obvious, but believe it or not, most people don’t realize or know what they need to do around their home to make it less attractive for bees to return. That means remove items such as unused lawn furniture, piles of wood or branches, or any other abandoned junk/structures on your property. These items make ideal places for bees to set up a nest or beehive. Remember, bees will be attracted to a location that offers them a protected space with convenient access to flowers and water.

Get rid of any previous infestation

Among the most common reasons for bees to return to your home or property is if you have left remains of a previous infestation, such as honeycomb. Less experienced bee removal services could unwittingly not entirely remove all of the honeycomb from a previous bee infestation. The scent from the old honeycomb remnants can attract a colony the following year. That is why it is best to hire a very experienced bee removal company so that you can be confident your bee infestation has been solved once and for all.
