Bee Control 101: Keeping People and Bees in Harmony

When it comes to bees and humans, harmony is best found in keeping a respectful distance. When humans can protect bees’ habitats, everyone benefits. However, when bees encroach on human spaces, bee control efforts are needed so both bees and humans can continue to thrive.

Bees play an essential role in our ecosystem. They pollinate plants, which helps maintain our food supply and the biodiversity of our planet. Bees look for cavities to nest in or open areas to build their hives, such as off of tree limbs. Human homes also provide desirable cavities in the walls that bees are attracted to. With this in mind, humans can take preventative measures to seal off any openings, cracks, or gaps in and around their homes so that bees cannot intrude. Treating the structures around your property regularly can also deter bees from nesting there.

Effective bee control not only deters bees, but it also provides spaces for them to thrive. Planting a bee-friendly garden strategically on your property can help bees congregate in a safe space away from high-activity areas. You’ll support the bee population while drawing them away from your home.

While bees are important to our ecosystem, they also pose considerable problems for humans. Their stings are painful and can even be life-threatening in some cases. They can also cause structural damage. If you have a bee problem on your property, our experienced team of bee removers can help.
