If you have found that you have an active beehive on or near your home or business, your first instinct may be to simply grab a can of bug killer and start spraying away, or perhaps to call an exterminator. There are, however several reasons why that is the last thing on earth that you should do. The most obvious reason for this is that you probably don’t have the right equipment or know-how to safely, properly and permanently dispose of or remove a beehive without getting yourself stung and doing more harm than good. Here are some other reasons that, when you need some help getting rid of bees, you should call in the experts to have them removed.

1. Bees should not be killed. Simply put, there is no overstating the importance of these creatures to the sustenance of life on earth. Yes, you read that right. Bees do the vast majority of the work of pollinating the crops that grow the plants that feed all of us, and that feed the animals we raise as well. Due to many factors, including pesticides, the number of bees and active beehives is already decreasing at an uncomfortable rate. So, if at all possible, these valuable creatures should be safely removed from your property by hiring a qualified bee removal service. The best of these services practice eco-friendly bee removal, and have deals with professional beekeepers to move the entire colony to a farm where these creatures can continue to do their valuable work.

2. Hives Need To Be Removed Completely. Beehives are, naturally, full of honey, and if they are not removed completely from your premises along with the bees, they will attract other pests such as ants, wasps, flies, and vermin. There is also a much greater chance that bees that are not captured, or a neighboring colony, will attempt to re-colonize the hive if it is not properly and professionally removed.

3. Hives Can Leave Structural Damage. And the best bee removal experts will repair this damage as part of their services.

4. Removal is Pesticide-Free. So it doesn’t leave any toxic or poisonous residue behind. Bees are removed in perfect health, and are relocated to a place where they can happily go about their business without disturbing yours. And, of course, no poisonous fumes seep into your home or business potentially compromising the health of all residents and workers.

So if you are having trouble with a beehive, do the right thing and call in the experts to have them removed safely and in an eco-friendly manner.

Bee Happy it’s Friday!!!!
