The Dangers of Bees
Though small, bees can be dangerous to you and your family, especially if you or someone is allergic to bee stings. You are also legally responsible for any injuries incurred from a bee-related accident if there are bees on your property. With a beehive removal, you can prevent any liability from a bee attack or sting, as well as protect yourself, your neighbors, and anyone who visits your property. Most importantly, the beehive in your property might not be a native honeybee. They could instead be Africanized “killer” bees, which have migrated to the southern United States. These bees take over an existing beehive by killing the queen and establishing themselves in the hive. Their danger comes from their defensiveness, as they are easy to provoke, quick to swarm, and will attack intruders with greater numbers and over longer distances than a typical honey bee.
Damage Caused by Bees
Whether the bees set up shop in a forgotten bar-b-que, shed, rotted tree, chimney, or wall, they are sure to cause significant damage due to their sophisticated networks. Honeycombs and hives can be filled with honey, further attracting more insects to your home. Within abandoned hives, there also can remain dead bees, which will leave a stench if not removed. Honey can also be hard to remove and stain surfaces, one other mess that can be costly if not dealt with immediately. By removing a beehive properly, you can prevent taking these measures.
The Beehive Removal Process
A technically skilled professional will also be able to evaluate reasons for the bees on your property or in your home, and can recommend ways to keep them from nesting and destroying your property. They can also remove a hive in hard to reach or well-established places, such as within a wall or tree. Without the right training and licensure, bee removal can be hazardous and should be left to an expert with experience in fumigating and treating the hive with a pesticide in order to get rid of the bees. As beehives can be extensive, the professional will also know how to clean out the cavity the bees have built combs within. This process can take time, but if not done properly, neglectfulness can disrepair.

2 thoughts on “Removing a Large Beehive”
There’s a large beehive in my backyard, and I have no idea how to get rid of it, which is why I’m thinking of hiring a pest control service. It’s scary to learn that the bees in my backyard could be Africanized killer insects. You’re also right that their honeycombs could attract more insects in my property.
I like how you explained that honey bees are important for the ecosystem so they should be safely relocated. I think some people try to kill them rather than just have them moved. Their role in the ecosystem is so crucial so I would hope people would have them moved rather than killed.
