The warmer the weather gets outside the more you will see pests out and about. There are pests that are waiting to live their life when the weather gets hot and bees and wasps fall into this category. You will start to notice an influx of bees outdoors the hotter it gets. They will hang on for dear life as long as there are flowers to feed from and warm air. The problem is that there are lots of people that are afraid of bees and want to keep them away from their home and family. There is a fine line when it comes to bees. You want to let them live their life and pollinate the earth but you also want to protect your family from stings. That is why there are times that you will want to call a professional out to remove the bees from your property. Stewart Termite & Pest Control outlines when you need to call a pest control company about bees.
Location of Beehive
If you are walking around outside your house and you are seeing more and more bees you could have a hive on your property. The bees that are active need to have a safe place to start their hive and that means that they might be around your house. You will most likely see some here and there but if you see a lot you need to go look for their hive. The hive can be in a variety of spaces such as under the eaves of your house. They can also be in a shed, on your pool equipment and even in a tree. You want to make sure you look around and if you see a hive on your property where it might be problematic you can call for removal. The hive could be too close to your door or windows. It can be too low that a pet might bother it and make the bees come out on defense.
Are Bees Acting Aggressive & About to Attack?
You also want to make sure that you are careful if you happen to see a beehive near your house. Most bees are not aggressive and will do what they can to keep away from danger. They are looking to feed their colony and that might mean getting to close to your barbecue dinner. You want to keep an eye on the bees and if they start to act out of character you can call to have the hive removed and the bees relocated. This is so that you can protect your family and neighbors that might get stung.
Are You or a Loved One Allergic to Bee Stings?
Lastly it is a good idea to take your own health into account. There are many people that have allergies to certain foods, plants and animals. They also can have an allergic reaction to a bee sting that can be dangerous and even cause death. If you know that you or your loved one is allergic it is a good idea to have the hive removed from your area right away.
