There are lots of areas around the country that are supposed to be doing all they can to socially distance themselves. This is not something that we have seen before with many businesses shutting down and traveling being banned. The states that are most concerned about the spread of the coronavirus have closed down the state and asked all residents to quarantine themselves for several weeks. With that being said, there are lots of families that are taking advantage of the time at home with their family. Some are choosing to set up schooling, chores, skills and more. The timing of the year that this is happening also falls in line with the change in seasons. The cold weather is on its way out and the warm temperatures are here. That means that you will see new growth on your plants and trees and an uptick in the pests that you see as well. Although you should be staying away from others, that does not mean that pests and other issues will not arise. You want to make sure that if you have any type of pest infestation you take care of it. Animal Pest Management Services, Inc outlines what you can do if you find bees on your property during quarantine.
How to Tell if You Have Bees in Your Walls
We all know that the the existence of bees is necessary for the growth of plants, flowers and food. When it comes to bees they are needed but if they are too close to your home and your family where you want to enjoy your time outside, they can be a problem. An occasional visitor is fine but if there is a bee hive or a major infestation nearby it can be difficult. The great thing is that there are things that you can look for to know if you have a problem. You want to walk around and listen for the sound of bees. When there is a hive you can usually hear the buzzing noise. You also want to look around and under areas that they might want to build a hive such as window ledges or outdoor equipment. Check thoroughly for signs that there is a hive in the area.
Can You Remove a Bee Hive Yourself?
When it comes to bees they are very necessary and should be handled with care. They are not a pest that can be squished or smashed but they should be moved to a safe location to continue to populate. If you are not trained in moving a bee hive safely it is best to leave it to a professional. You also run the risk of upsetting the colony and they can go on the defense and sting whoever is in the area.
Call a Professional to Relocate Bees
The best thing you can do is to give the colony a chance to exist. The way that you can do that is to call a professional that can come out and move them to a better location and protect the colony. You can help by leaving the hive alone and not bothering it or the area until it has been completed.
How to Prevent Bees from Nesting in Your Home
Prevent bees from building a hive in your home by sealing any holes or openings, removing old honeycomb (from old bee hives) as well as removing yard clutter and debris such as dead tree limbs and abandoned vehicles etc.
