HELP US HELP YOU SUCCESSFULLY CONTROL BEES
Basic steps to ensure a successful Bee Control Service.
“Bees are our friends!” They are the primary species that provide humanity with fruits and vegetables and products like honey and bees’ wax. They are natures No. #1 Pollinators. Therefore, we do everything in our power to keep bees alive. It is only when they become a threat to public safety that bee elimination might be considered. Even in these cases humane removal and relocation is our first choice of action.
Here are recommendations to keep bees in the garden but away from your home.
- Bee proofing is necessary to guard against future bee colonization. Make sure cracks and crevices are caulked and holes in walls and damaged screens are repaired. Deny them access to interior spaces.
- Plant or move bee attracting plants and shrubs away from areas up against the house or other structures.
- Hummingbird feeders should be placed away from the house or other structures. Moving hummingbird feeders periodically, can be a useful tactic to create confusion and keep bees away from hummingbird feeders. Bees are attracted to the color yellow, so choose feeders that are red. Hummers love red.
- Keep an eye on bird houses. Empty bird houses are a perfect bee house. These can also be painted in colors that are not attractive to bees (red, blue, green etc.) Keep them away from the house.
