Signs You Might Have a Bee Infestation

myths about bees

We all know that bees are an important part of our ecosystem. Their pollination efforts keep flowers blooming and food on our plates. Plus, the honey they make is pretty darn delicious. But when they infest your home or property, they can be much more than a hassle! They can be dangerous for your family and destructive to your home. 

Bee stings can be painful and even deadly for people who are allergic to their venom. Sections of your home can be destroyed when bees decide to build their nest inside your walls, attic or even in your floorboards. These two things alone should be enough to convince you to hire a professional live bee removal company at the first sign of a bee infestation. Never attempt to handle bees on your own. The job is difficult enough, even for the pros!

Do You Have a Bee Infestation? 

If you think you have a bee infestation, ask yourself these three questions and then call a San Diego bee removal expert. 

Is there an increase in bee activity? 

A telltale sign that you may have a bee infestation on your hands is an increase in bee activity. You may notice more than the average number of bees flying around your home. You may find bees inside your home when you never usually see them indoors. You may even start to hear the buzz of bees in and around your home. 

In any case, more bees probably means that there is a hive somewhere close by. Oftentimes you can locate the hive by following the travel routes of the bees. If you choose to do this, be careful and take measures to avoid disturbing the hive in any way. 

Do you see an active nest around your home? 

If you happen to find a hive on your property, you will want to check to see if it’s an active hive (from a safe distance, of course). An active bee hive will have obvious bee activity, with bees coming in and out as they take their important foraging trips to local flowers. Even if you suspect that a hive has been abandoned by its inhabitants, take care not to disturb it. Surprising the bees will probably not end well for you! 

Are there any inexplicable dark spots on your walls? 

Another sign that you might be dealing with a bee infestation is the appearance of mysterious dark spots on your walls or ceilings. When honey bees build a nest inside the structure of your walls, they fill the cells with honey. Inevitably, some of the honey seeps out of the honeycomb and onto your walls. The honey will destroy wood, drywall and other building materials. It can even attract lots of other pests including rodents and insects to the area, causing even more damage.
