Keep the Buzz in the Meadow and Not in Your Home

When you have a bee problem in your home, it would be wise to call a bee removal service as soon as possible. This is especially true if you or a neighbor has a severe allergic reaction to bee stings.
Naturally, you’ll want to keep your home free of bees once a bee removal service finishes ridding your home of bees. Unfortunately, bees only nest in an area that provides ample shelter with nearby food sources—and a brand new swarm of bees will quickly find out why a previous swarm chose the prime real estate that your home offers. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help keep bees away from your home and in the meadows where they belong:

Plug Up Holes
A typical bee can enter a hole as small as a quarter of an inch wide. Locate any holes you may have along your roofing, siding, or walls and have a professional seal them up. If there are any holes within any nearby trees, you may want to fill those in as well to prevent bees from moving in.
Remove the Honeycomb
The honeycomb contains a large amount of pheromones that can attract bees scouting for a new home. If these scouts find your home, you’re sure to have another bee problem on your hands. Ask your exterminator to help you locate and remove the honeycomb from your property ASAP.
