As you may well know, bees are vanishing in surprisingly large numbers across the nation and the world. Because of this well-known fact, you may be surprised to find a bee infestation in your attic or elsewhere in your home. And while you may not want to contribute to the reduction of the bee population, you also know that bee removal will be necessary to keep your home and your family protected and safe. Get to know more about how you can remove the bees from your home and get started making your home bee-free as soon as possible.
Moving the Nest
If you have a bee hive or nest in your home, one of the solutions that could work for you is simply relocating the nest rather than destroying it. This is especially a great option for bumblebee nests as bumblebees are the most endangered type of bees.
If you hire a professional beekeeper or a bee removal company that specializes in non-lethal pest relocation, you can have the entire nest structure removed from your home with minimal damage to the colony and the nest itself.
Tricking the Bees Out of the Nest
Beekeepers and non-lethal pest removal experts are also adept at other methods of getting rid of bees from your home and even your property entirely. They will bring a bee box with them with honeycomb that is designed to entice the existing colony of bees to relocate into the box.
Once the bees have made the beekeeper's box their new home, the entrances and exits of the box can be closed and the beekeeper will be able to transfer the box to their own land or somewhere else that is safe for the bees and remove the danger of being stung from your home.
Generally speaking, all of the bees will relocate into the box so that you do not need to feel guilty about killing them or destroying their home.
Sealing Up Areas Where Bees Can Enter Your Home
Once the bees have been safely relocated and removed from your home, the only thing you have left to do is destroy what is left of the empty nest and seal up your home so that a new colony of bees cannot take up residence in your home at a later date. Check for cracks or gaps around windows and doors.
Additionally, check your roof both from the inside and outside for signs of damage or gaps that would be large enough for a bee or other insect to sneak through. The more holes and cracks you are able to fill, the less likely you will have to go through this process again in the future.
Now that you know how to remove the bees from your home without causing them harm, you can get started and make your house pest-free as soon as possible
