Have you noticed there are increasing amounts of bees or wasps near your property? If so, you should check the outside of your home and property for a hive. While bees play a crucial role in pollination, pest control and honey production, they can also harm people, pets and property.
Bees play an important role in nature. They pollinate plant and flower life, control other pests and produce honey. However, they can also sting.
While a few rogue bees in your back yard now and again is certainly not cause for alarm, a swarm of them living in a playground, near a home entrance or other area where one is likely to be stung is. Irritated worker bees can pursue what they sense is an intruder, which at best can lead to a few painful stings and at worst to death. While this is rare, it is certainly a concern.
While you can buy and use chemicals for bee extermination or control, you need to keep in mind that they can be quite dangerous. It is critical for you to take proper precautions and cover yourself from head to toe. Those who are allergic to bees should forgo do-it-yourself extermination and hire a professional. Those with pets or small children who could be adversely affected by these chemicals might also consider hiring a professional. There are specific bee and wasp pest control methods that a professional can help you with. Hiring a professional pest control can mean safe and efficient handling of the wasps and bees.
