Whilst bees are a traditionally passive insect and only use their stinger as a last resort, they can be very territorial in nature, which can cause big problems when they decide to nest in homes and commercial buildings.
People will often notice an infestation come spring time, where bees are out in force in surrounding plants and flowers gathering nectar. Many commercial buildings and schools often have these flowering plants around car parks and entrances to pretty up appearances – causing people to walk right beside these swarms of unwanted friends. A typical hive can accommodate up to 20,000 bees.
Where Do They Nest?
Unfortunately, bees can build nests in trees close to homes, or in some cases within wall cavities and celling voids of commercial buildings like schools and offices. This usually occurs in the warmer months where they will leave the hive in groups to find a new nesting location.
How Do We Deal With The Bees?
The beneficial role bees play in our environment far outweighs their status as a pest. It’s for this reason that many pest control companies don’t like to kill off a bee hive.
Our trained staff are capable of moving an entire colony on bees without harming them. First and foremost the safety of all occupants is our top priority, so we highly recommend that you do not try to deal with a bee issue on your own.
If you have any suspicions or concerns about a hive close to your premises, fill out your details on the form to the right, and we’ll have someone out to inspect and assess your situation – as well as provide a fast solution if required.
