As important as bees are to growing beautiful, healthy plants (and producing a great treat in honey), a hive – whether filled with bees or wasps – isn’t exactly something you want on your own property. Bees can incite fear pretty easily, and for good reason: a bee sting, though usually not dangerous, can be life-threatening for those with allergies or in large quantities. Not to mention that, even if a sting isn’t serious, it can still hurt like the dickens – especially for children.
If you have a beehive on your property, it’s important that you don’t try to eliminate the problem yourself. Bee control should only be handled by professionals with the right equipment and safety measures – like the bee control technicians at Bug Emergency. Our bee control methods safely remove beehives and prevent those yellow and black insects from returning to your home, without interfering with commercial hives and pollinators.
Types of Bees
The amount of damage bees can inflict on your property can depend on the type of bee that’s moved into your property. Honeybees are the most common type of bee in the United States. Bumblebees, on the other hand, are short and fat and known for sitting on flowers during the summer. You’ll know carpenter bees because they make their homes inside soft wood and can cause structural damage to your property. Africanized bees, also called killer bees, are more common in warm climates and often build homes in the ground. These guys are particularly troublesome because they proactively attack potential threats up to a thousand feet away.
Don’t share your home with these or any other types of bees. Call Bug Emergency today.
