The Dangers of Bee Infestations

February 9th, 2017

Have you noticed a bee infestation in our around your home? At first, the hive itself may be large enough to warrant action. However, it’s important to take action as soon as possible after noticing an infestation. A quick search of the Internet will show you some DIY bee removal methods, however, the best solution is to hire a professional pest management firm that specializes in bee removal in your area.

But first, why should you remove bees from your home? It’s common knowledge that bees sting, however, what are some of the other risk factors?

Bee Allergies

Those who are allergic to bees should take extra precautions if they begin to notice a beehive formation around their home. Bee stings, for those who are allergic to them, can cause serious symptoms. These include vomiting, nausea, fainting, or throat closing.

Bee Stings

As mentioned above, it’s common knowledge that bees will sting if they feel threatened. If stung by a bee, you will experience pain and swelling. While not life-threatening in most cases, medical action must be taken. One of the bigger threats with bee stings is the potential to get stung by multiple bees at one time. Thus, if you notice a growing beehive, it’s best to get it taken care of as soon as possible.

Proper Steps for Bee Removal

Removing a beehive or bee infestation is not a simple “one-and-done” procedure. Once the beehive has been removed, the honeycomb should also be taken care of. If the honeycomb is not removed, then problems can arise again as new bees create their hive after the others have been removed.

Additionally, common pests such as rats, wax moths, and ants can be attracted to a beehive and will take the opportunity to feed on the honey.

To prevent further damage to a structure, the honeycomb should also be removed because it can melt in the heat (especially in our Southwest Florida summers) and drip down the walls.
