Tips for Beehive Removal
This is about wild bee hives. Wild bees that live peacefully doing their activities without any intention of stumbling in a human daily life are occasionally found guilty for being an annoyance to us. Without any guilty feelings or just being naive, they build nest in our home or land, probably in the wall of your home or on a nearby tree.
So far there isn't any problem yet. But this can change in a sudden when a false alarm triggers the bees to protect their hive and hurting somebody around with their stings. Or maybe someone was trying to do something that might threaten their hive or other bees. This will make them attack people, which is a perfect reason to get rid of them and remove the hive out of the [post_name] neighborhood.
Bee hive removal can be a "do it yourself" job if you prepare yourself very well and ready with the consequences. But it is best if this job is done by a pest control service which has all the resources, expertise and skill to totally clean up the area from bees. A total approach of bee hive removal is a step by step procedure which is finding the hive, removing the bees, removing the hive and the prevention of future disturbances by the bees.
After removing the hive and the killed bees, wash the place thoroughly using a detergent and water. This is to make sure that all possible bee traces that can be detected by other foraging bees and make them attracted to this place. Close all possible entry points where the bees can pass through. Do not forget to seal the hole(s) you have made to apply the insecticide as well other openings in your wall.
That's it. The bee hive removal job is done. However, I still recommend that you appoint a reputable pest control agent. Although it seems that the job is quite easy to be done by yourself but it bears some risk, especially if you're unaware that you may be allergic to bee stings. Second, going up on ladder fully dressed with your beekeeping suit is really not an easy task to do. Isn't it?
Honey Bees or Africanized Honey Bees? Know the Difference
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.
