Bee Control: A How to Guide
Bees are a vital part of nature since they are the pollinators that actually help put food on our tables, but we still don’t want them where they shouldn’t be. So when they are in an area that is either harmful to human beings or damaging to property, you have a bee control problem. How do you get them out?
Figure Out What You’re Dealing With
There are several different varieties of bees out there and the removal of one type of bee might not be the same as the removal of another type of bee, it’s important to first identify the type of bee that you have. For example, the bumble bee and the carpenter bee are actually pretty similar. They are about one half of an inch to an inch long and are black behind their wings and have up to three yellow stripes on their body. Carpenter bees are about the same size and have similar colors but they are not quite as fuzzy. Honey bees on the other hand do have similar colors but are much smaller then bumble and carpenter bees. Trying to determine bee types is rough, but once you do, you have a far more likely chance of actually getting rid of them.
Call a Professional
Although there may be a variety of options for removing bees from an area, the preferred method is to hire a professional pest and bee control specialist. A professional can safely capture, remove and then move them to a safe location. This is a much better option than destroying and killing them for a variety of reasons. Wondering why? For many, it comes down to safety. It’s simply not as easy to kill an entire hive as you might imagine, and many people are hurt in the process every single year. Second, bees are very beneficial to nature and to agriculture, and since bee populations are down 25% since 1990 it’s important to keep them alive. Lastly, property can also be damaged if the hive is not properly disposed of, especially when it comes to carpenter bees.
