A swarm of honey bees can alarm the best of us and when it’s approaching or worse, nesting, in your property then there’s trouble. If you’ve noticed a nest nearby or in your garden, calling a professional pest control company in Albany for its removal is the best idea. Everyone knows a bee can sting so to avoid this untoward consequence, it’s a good idea to call in an expert.
Why Choose My Home to Nest?
Unlike most other pests, honey bees aren’t attracted to poor hygiene or places where you have left uncovered food. Instead, a flowery garden could attract them. Honeybees migrate in a cyclic way every year with their queen bee leading the swarm. Every winter when eggs are laid, a new queen bee is selected. The old queen bee then leaves the nest with a good number of bees following her. The swarm then finds a new nesting point somewhere where food is plenty and usually in hollows, house walls, trees or even chimneys.
How Can I Prevent Bees from Nesting Around My Home?
Preventing a swarm of bees nesting around your home can be tricky. That’s because unlike other pests, there’s not much you can do to remove the things that attract honey bees. One idea is to reduce the clutter around your garden. As with other pests, bees prefer places they can hide in. A messy garden can be a good place in this regard. Remove any unwanted lawn furniture and equipment, mow your lawn and trim the plants to get some organization in place.
Some experts also suggest removing all traces of any previous beehive or honeycomb. Studies have shown that bees are attracted to certain pheromones released by honeycombs. So if you’ve had one in your garden before, it’s a good idea to completely eliminate it.
What Can I Do About the Nests?
While many people prefer to leave the honeycomb as such, there’s always an increased risk of getting stung. Contact your local pest control service for a complete and effective elimination of the nest around your home.
