Why Should You Remove Bees from Your Home?



Bees in your yard is one thing. Bees in your home is a completely different story! When you realize that you have a bee hive built into the walls of your home, it can be frightening, stressful and downright creepy. 

At the first sign of a hive in an unwanted place in your home, you should contact a live bee removal company to come to the scene and begin the removal process. There are a number of reasons why it’s important to remove the hive right away. The longer you wait, the larger your bee problem can become. 

You might be wondering why you can’t just leave the bees where they are and wait for them to move along come springtime. After all, bees don’t usually pose much of a risk to humans as long as they are left alone. But even a small disturbance has the potential to upset your bees and result in a sting or worse, an attack. 

Here are a few reasons why you should always have bees relocated when they have established residence in your home. 

Bee stings can be dangerous. 

For many people, the idea of a possible bee sting is enough for them to call in bee removal professionals. Even though it is relatively rare for a full-on bee attack, it is always a possibility when a colony of bees feels that their hive is being threatened. Stings can be slightly unpleasant for most people. But when someone is allergic to bee venom or receives multiple stings, it can be lethal. 

Hives can get big- very big. 

A bee hive grows as the colony establishes itself. What can start out as a few thousand bees, can quickly become tens of thousands in a short period of time. As the colony expands, there is a greater chance that you will be stung by more than one bee. Larger colonies also mean that the hive must continue to grow to accommodate its residents. Hives have been known to become massive structures inside of walls and ceilings, increasing the potential for serious property damage and destruction. 

Colonies can be destructive to your property. 

As we just mentioned, bee hives can become really big inside the walls of your home. The expansion of the hive can bust out your walls, explode your pipes and wreak havoc on your electric wiring. As bees expand the hive, they can chew drywall and other building materials that can compromise the integrity of your home. Dead bees and spoiled honey can give off a bad odor and attract other pests such as rodents, insects and even other colonies of bees. Melted honey can seep through the walls and cause even more damage to your structure. 

Bee removal can get expensive. 

Finally, the larger the bee hive inside your wall, the more dangerous and difficult it will be to have it completely removed. Bee removal companies will need to assess the size of the hive and the extent of the damage. There will most likely be pieces of your structure that will need to be removed in order to access it, adding to the amount of repairs that will have to be done to get your home back to a safe condition. The sooner you call in the professionals, the easier and cheaper it will be to remove the hive.
