Bees are important. These hardworking insects help pollinate flowers, grow fruits, and make your garden bloom. But when bees make their home in your home, this is something else. You have to remove bees safely and effectively with these techniques.
Bee Removal Using Smoke
Bees hate smoke. Usually, beekeepers smoke out the bees to access their hive to get honey. Smoke knocks them out, but don’t kill the bees. They will leave their homes once they smell smoke. And once they are out of the area, you can remove honey and wash the area thoroughly so they won’t come back.
Remove Structures Bees Love
Bees love places with open water like fountains, any leaking tanks or plumbing. By taking care of these structures, especially fixing plumbing, you will be able to protect your home from bees.
Using Soap And Water
Make a soap and water mixture and spray this on the beehive. Place the mixture in a spray bottle and blast the bees out and melt the wax inside the hive. The bees won’t like a soapy colony, and thus they will go away and make another one elsewhere. Also, blasting bees with soapy water will destroy their wings. They will likely fall to the ground and die after a few days. And of course, soap and water are safe to use, and you can use this method over and over again.
Don’t Give Up Even For One Day
After bees are driven off your property, they will likely persist and try to build a new hive elsewhere. You must never stop defending your home even for a day. Bees will probably come back with a vengeance and make a bigger and better nest, and here’s where you need professional help.
You must hire a professional bee removal service to get rid of bees safely and effectively. You can first call a beekeeper who takes care of bees and harvests honey for profit. You may also contact a professional pest control service to get rid of bees without extinguishing them. And when you get professional service, ask for a quote to make sure that you’re getting the best value bee removal service.
