Here Is What You Should Do If Bees Are Living Within Your Walls
Every once in awhile homeowners will find themselves petrified to discover insect nests within their homes. Sometimes, although rarely, bees can be heard buzzing behind the walls of a home or an apartment. Naturally, getting rid of such an insect infestation will immediately become a homeowners first priority. It is not always clear as to how bee removal should be handled. Certainly, only professionals should attempt such a potentially dangerous extraction method. Sometimes pest control companies should be called, sometimes beekeepers should be notified, and surprisingly, even plumbers and electricians can lend their skills to a bee infestation within a home.
Many of you are well aware of the fact that bee populations have been dropping worldwide during the past ten or so years. Luckily, bee populations seem to be on the rise this summer. However, it still important to protect the lives of bees in most scenarios, even when they are buzzing behind your walls.
If the invading bees happen to be easily accessible, then beekeepers should be notified of the bee presence so that they may extract the bees in order to put them to economic use. However, if bees should be causing clear dangers to house-dwellers, and if invading bees are particularly hard to access behind walls, then pest control professionals should be notified so that they may once again make your house safe from potentially dangerous insects. In all cases pest control professionals should be notified first so that the type of bees invading a home can be properly identified.
Different types of bees must be approached in different ways. For instance, yellow jackets look like bees, but they are actually aggressive wasps. Therefore, handling yellow jacket infestations are handled in a manner quite different from bee infestations. Surprisingly, in cases when bees are located in hard to reach areas of your home, a plumber or an electrician can be called upon to pinpoint their location. After their location is identified a pest control professional should be notified for identification purposes, and possible eradication if necessary.
