Bee Removal San Bernardino
...Warmer weather has arrived...and so have the bees.
Getting rid of bees from your property can be quite challenging, especially if the project is not handled by a professional. If a swarm of bees feels threatened, they will organize in an attack against the
“threat” oftentimes overwhelming a person or animal by the number of painful stings. In the case of an allergic reaction, or an overly aggressive (Africanized or “killer” bees) any bee sting can prove life-threatening. In any case, it always unpleasant.
When bees swarm they are looking for a new home and have no hive full of honey to protect so they are not defensive. It is wise to watch them from a safe location. For example, viewing them through a window inside of your home, and then proceeding with calling a professional bee removal specialist to see them safely on their way. Please do not attempt to remove them yourself.
Swarming occurs during the months of April and May. Usually, when a colony of bees splits by swarming, part of the old colony leaves to seek a new home. As far as bee removal goes, it can be quite tricky, especially if they have set up their hive inside of your structure. Some places are much easier to remove bees from than others. Bees are usually attracted to light and enter your home through gaps in an eave, overhang, window frame, baseboard, electrical outlets and or vents. If the entrance hole is blocked, they generally find a different crack or opening or follow light that is coming from the inside of your home. Simply filling the gap or space is insufficient as a means of control. The bees will find or create another way in and out of the space they have chosen.
A honey bee colony within a structure sometimes may be successfully exterminated with an insecticide. However, if this eradication is not done properly, it may take several costly extermination attempts. If a colony of bees have resided within that space for more than a few days, wax combs and honey will already be stored within the wall. The longer the colony has been there, the greater the chances are that large amounts of the comb and honey have accumulated. There may be many pounds of wax, debris and honey within that space by the end of the season. This accumulation of debris, now unguarded by the bee colony, will attract other pests and rodents, and even other bee colonies. Additionally, the material will melt, or rot, and run down the wall or ceiling, causing great damage if not removed. Large numbers of decaying bees trapped within the structure will also create a strong odor which will be attractive to other pests which will cause additional problems and damage to the property.
