Why You Should Consider Bee Relocation

When you have a bee problem on your property, your first response might be to bring out the bee spray and thoroughly eradicate the stinging insects and their nests. While this is a reasonable reaction, it isn’t the best or most environmentally friendly response. You might instead consider a professional bee relocation. Here are a few reasons why.

  1. Protect an endangered species: Years ago, a species of bumblebee was listed as an endangered species, and bee populations have been declining since. We rely on bees as pollinators and for their honey, so it’s important to take good care of them, even if the sentiment can be less appealing as they sting you, your children, or your pets when provoked. A professional bee relocation can safely and effectively remove the bees from your home while keeping the pollinators safe.
  2. Still an effective bee removal strategy: Bee relocation can be equally effective in removing the bees from your property compared to extermination. When you call us for our services, we will always use proper equipment and follow safety protocols to keep you, your household, the bees, and ourselves safe. We will also apply an eco-friendly spray that will keep the bees from returning to your home.
  3. Prevent attracting other bees: Simply destroying a bee’s nest can leave beeswax and other residue in the location that can mark the spot as a good nesting place for future bees. That means there’s a good chance that new bees will move into the same spot even after you have sprayed and destroyed the nest on your own. With professional bee relocation, no such residue is left over, and we can treat the location to make it unappealing for future bees to keep them away for good.

Bee relocation can be beneficial and effective for both the protection of your property and the environment, so it is always a good choice. You can give us a call if you would like to learn more.
