Bee Removal: An Overview

The presence of bees—along with their nasty sting—can be enough to dampen the many joys of warm weather. If you want to evict the bees that have moved onto your property, you first need to understand the task at hand. The information below will give you a better understanding of what you need to do.

First of all, you need to identify the type of bee that you want removed. Bumblebees and honeybees are usually easy to get rid of. To differentiate, honeybees have black and gold stripes, while bumblebees have black and yellow. They may attack when in danger, but are more conservative with their stings compared to wasps. The latter are very hostile and will immediately swarm and attack when threatened.
Bee removal, done on your own, can be a time-consuming process, not to mention dangerous. It’s best to consult a professional beforehand. Better yet, let the pros handle the task entirely.
Unless the bees are causing damage or you’re allergic to them, sometimes, it’s better for you to leave the bees alone. They tend to stay in one place temporarily and will leave on their own in a few months’ time, anyway. However, if you’re living in fear or your situation calls for the removal of the infestation (such as children in your household), contact your local pest control company for proper removal.
