Are you currently dealing with a pesky beehive on your property and wondering how to go about getting rid of it? Beehive removal can be tricky, and it’s important to take extra precaution when dealing with this kind of pest, since you are at risk of being stung. To help guide you, here’s how to best handle beehive removal.
- Space – Stinging insects easily feel threatened, which leads them to feel the need to fight back and sting. When you are approaching them it’s important to give them their space, so you don’t get stung and they don’t feel provoked.
- Find the Source – If the hive is unfortunately inside of your home, try to identify where the access point where bees are entering. Do not attempt to block off this access point without the hive and bees being removed first. Prematurely blocking the access point can result in bees spreading to other areas of your house.
- Avoid Sprays & Traps – Your first instinct might be to reach for some sort of insect repellent such as spray or a trap. However, sprays can be dangerous, and traps can leave you with several live bees that you have to dispose of and the possibility of uncaught bees still present.
- Call a Professional – Overall, to get rid of a beehive you should always call a professional. A professional will have all the right equipment and practices to safely remove your beehive. Removing a beehive yourself will likely end up in you getting stung and can be dangerous.
