What to Do If You Have
A Beehive on Your Property

Seeing a few bees buzzing around your home during the spring and summer is not unusual. In fact, it’s a good sign that the bee population in your area is thriving. But when you start to hear more than a pleasant buzz of honey bees on your property, it may be a sign that you have a beehive nearby.

For the most part, this is nothing to be alarmed about. However, if bees have decided to build their nest on your property or in your home, you might have a larger problem on your hands. Although small, bees can cause a great deal of damage if they have made their nest in the walls, attic or roof of your home.

When you think you have a beehive on your property, you are probably wondering how to best handle the situation safely and quickly. Not only do you want to avoid costly damage to your drywall, stucco, siding or roof materials, but you also want to ensure the safety of the people and pets on your property. Bee stings can be unpleasant and very dangerous to those who are allergic to bee venom.

Once you have determined you have a beehive, what should you do next? San Diego Bee Removal Pros is here to help! Follow these steps if you locate a hive on your property or in the structure of your home.

Locate the Source of the Honey Bees

Even if you feel confident that you have a beehive somewhere on the premises, it’s critical that you locate the exact location of the hive. Why? You want to avoid the area so you do not aggravate the bees, resulting in aggressive bees and nasty bee stings. If you find the spot where the bees are entering the hive, do not attempt to block the entrance. This will often encourage the bees to find another access point and create even more destruction to your home.

Come in Peace

It may be tempting to take on the bee removal process on your own. However, it is never a wise idea to try to eliminate your bees without the help of a professional. The best thing to do is give the bees some space until expert live bee removal specialists arrive on the scene. Generally, honeybees are passive and mind their own business, gathering nectar for the hive and pollinating plants and flowers. If they are aggravated, they may become aggressive.

Never attempt to disperse or kill the bees! Avoid spraying the hive with a hose or tossing objects at the hive in an attempt to dislodge it from your structure. This will only create a colony of angry bees. It is also never recommended to use pesticides or other chemicals on a beehive or swarm. Due to the delicate nature of our bee populations and their importance to the ecosystem, we should all strive to protect and preserve our local honeybees.
