Particularly if people are aware of allergies to the painful stings, people are naturally cautious of the buzzing sounds coming from hornets, wasps, and bees. Should you discover honey bees, you do not need to resort to bug spray and poisonous insecticides to remove a honeybee comb from your home or business, though you want to take immediate action. Instead, call in a specialist, such as Animal Pest Management, to relocate the honeybees safely from your Southern California property. Honeybees are responsible for pollinating important crops, as they are one of many pollinators found in the world as well as make honey. Transferring seeds and pollen from one plant to another, the process is a fertilizing action and it is required so the plant can produce food. In fact, pollinators are responsible for about 30% of the cross-pollination needed for food crops. With this in mind, we at Animal Pest Management would like to take the opportunity to discuss the importance of relocating honeybees.
Bee Informed Colony Loss
The bee populations are at risk worldwide stemming from the syndrome known as colony collapse disorder. The fungus and parasites, use of pesticides near honeybee colonies, warming trends, along with habitat loss are believed by scientists are the root causes of this phenomena. Many fruits and vegetables will not survive as quite a few rely on the bees as their pollinators. Bees are required for peas, squash, strawberries, tomatoes, and Georgia peaches, among the many fruits and vegetables. Also, the delicious honey is produced by honeybees collecting nectar and removing moisture from it and storing it in the comb.
Discovery of Honey Bee Hives
Honey bees live in cracks and crevices in nature, frequently in rotting trees. If any suitable gaps exist, they can potentially find their way into your walls and form a nest in the walls or under your eaves. When a honeybee colony takes up residence in your home, there are a few concerns that can develop. As noted, the primary issue is the varied allergy symptoms that are triggered from a sting. Pests are drawn in by the honey bees produce. Finally, a major worry is the expensive repairs that can occur from the damage weight of the honey on the walls can cause. To safely remove the honey bees out of your home, there are specific techniques used to retain a colony and transplant hives.
