Honey bees will normally build a hive in an open covered area of your building where there is no insulation. If you believe you have a hive of honey bees in your Jackson home more than likely they are in between the floors of your home. Our process for removing the honey bees is to go into the hive from underneath keeping your repair bill down with only drywall repair.
Even though the honey bees are entering your Jackson home at one place does not mean that is where the beehive is. They can travel behind the wall all the way up to the soffit.
It helps if you can take pictures of the area they are entering your home and send them to us. We can do a lot of assessment with your pictures before we arrive. We will ask you questions when we call about the structure so we can be ready with the tools needed to do the bee removal job properly in Jackson GA.
The Life of Honey Bees
Not every insect is a pest.
Honey bees - especially those cultivated by professional beekeepers - are quite possibly the most important beneficial insect species we have. There's more to it than just the honey, too. According to the USDA, roughly one-third of our diet is made up of crops that are pollinated by bees. Many plants wouldn't produce vegetables and fruit if it weren't for the work done by honey bees.
Unless there is a colony or hive located near people or pets, it's best to leave well enough alone and let the honey bees do their thing. If you find a hive in a spot that's troubling, a reliable exterminator can eliminate the colony or, in some cases, move it to a safer place.
With all that said, however, there are instances when bees can be a serious threat. "Killer" bees are not just a myth - they are a real phenomenon known as Africanized honey bees.
So how do you tell a normal honey bee and its hive from one that's Africanized? You can't, and that amplifies the danger. It's only been recently that state and federal officials have added Arkansas and Oklahoma to the list of areas that AHBs now inhabit. They were first found in southeastern Oklahoma and southwestern Arkansas in 2005, but they have steadily moved into broader areas of both states.
Today, you should consider any bee and its colony to be Africanized, just to be on the safe side. If you see a hive, move away quickly and contact a trusted pest management agency and your local county extension office. If you are stung, RUN and don't stop running until you are safely indoors or in some other enclosure, like your car.
Honey Bees or Africanized Honey Bees? Know the Difference
We can learn many things by observing the behaviour of honey bees. Here are ten examples of lessons we could usefully apply to our own lives.
1) Honeybees live within their means. There are no banks, loans or credit cards in the bees' world; only the resources they themselves gather and store. Like us, bees need to eat every day, and they do everything in their power to ensure a constant food supply by storing it - not so much for themselves, but for bees yet to be born.
2) Honeybees achieve extraordinary things by working together. Fifty thousand workers can shift a lot of stuff. Co-operation is the key to their success: tens of thousands of individuals behaving as a single organism.
3) Honeybees demonstrate that division of labour can be highly efficient. And everyone knowing how to do the full range of essential jobs makes for flexibility and adaptability. Bees move through a series of jobs in the hive before finally emerging as food-gatherers. In an emergency, they can revert to their former occupations to make up for losses.
4) Honeybees make honey while the sun shines in [post_name] GA. Bees are opportunists, taking advantage of available food as soon as conditions are right. Even when their stores seem full, they will find odd corners to pack with food,
We must reform our farming methods. The alternative is a world controlled by corporations, intent on bringing the food chain completely under their control.
The elimination of 'nuisance species' is already underway by those who stand to profit from GM crops. To those who stand to make billions of dollars from maize, wheat, rice and cotton, the honeybees are irrelevant. They simply don't care if they disappear: they have no use for them, as all the crops that grow from the GM seeds they sell are wind-pollinated.
Ironically, some of these very same corporations are already making profits from breeding and selling other bee species - such as mason bees and bumblebees - to those whose crops do require pollination. Because these bees need to be bred in quantity and renewed every year, they have found a way to commercially benefit from the developing situation that must raise questions about their involvement in the demise of the honeybee.
Have they, in fact, deliberately poisoned the honey bee in order to exploit the resulting gap in the market?
