Why You Can’t Get Rid of Your Bees
Having a residential bee problem is not only scary, but stressful. So, if you have a swarm (thousands of bees) or infestation in or around your home, you may want to read some common reasons why you can’t get rid of these bees yourself, in a safe and effective way.
DIY Bee Removal
When you have a serious bee infestation problem, you really don’t want to try to remove the bees yourself. Like anything in life, without the proper training, equipment and experience, you’re really setting yourself up for failure. Lack of experience and understanding in what can agitate bees to make them more aggressive is an important safety consideration. Bee removal can be a dangerous task, especially, if it turns out that you are allergic to bee stings, which can be fatal. Additionally, well-established bee colonies and large beehives can present an increased risk when it comes to personal safety and the potential damage to your home.
For these reasons, it is recommended that you contact a qualified and experienced bee removal professional. Getting rid of bees from your home or property necessitates the use of specialized equipment and requires comprehensive knowledge and experience to get the job done correctly.
Hoping Bees will Go Away on their Own.
When it comes to removing bees from your home or property, wishful thinking that bees will just permanently leave on their own is not a good strategy. In fact, once bees create a hive within your home, it’s unlikely that they will leave anytime soon. Rather, you must consider the long-term consequences of ignoring your bee problem such as the damage the beehive can cause to your home. Honey, beeswax together with the bees themselves can place stress on the internal structure of your home which can include the wood beams, pipes and/or walls. Don’t put your home and family’s safety at risk, call the professional bee removal service at The Beehive, Bee and Wasp Removal in Mesa, AZ.
Sealing up the Points of Entry
To the novice, it may seem like a logical idea to close off any points of entry into your home where bees could gather and build a beehive. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Why? That’s because when you seal the cracks or entry points into your home’s walls, roof, etc., you end up having bees inside your home’s walls, attic, etc., who are determined to find a way out. This included the possibility of bees chewing through drywall which results in further damage to your home. This is why it’s best to contact a professional bee removal company to safely and effectively remove bees from your home.
Using Smoke, Water or Pesticides
Some homeowners might think that they can solve their bee infestation problem by using smoke or by spraying water or pesticides. This is a bad idea on many levels. In some cases, using such tactics could exacerbate the problem making it far worse. Use of pesticides for example, can not only be harmful and unnecessary to bees, but to your family’s health. Remember, honey bees are pollinators, making them essential as plants depend on pollination to reproduce. Animals and humans eat plants, so you can see the important role bees play in our ecosystem. That’s why it’s crucial that you contact a bee removal professional who can safely and humanely remove bees from your home.
