Problems bees cause

Bee’s are one of nature best pollinators, however, a backyard beehive can be dangerous if you don’t understand the risks.

Bee Stings

Bee stings can cause painful swelling and redness in the area around the skin. Bee stingers inject a small amount of venom into your skin. Over time the swelling is reduced and the pain turns to itching. The biggest threat to having a beehive in your yard is the risk of multiple bee stings! When bees feel threatened they attack. All of them! An attack from a beehive can lead to dozens of bee stings all over your body making it hard to remove the stingers. A bee stinger can continue to inject venom for up to a minute after a person has been stung.

Bee Allergies

Bees, hornets, and wasps present a big risk for people with bee sting allergies. These allergies range from mild to severe allergic reactions. A small minority of people, approximately 5 – 7.5% will experience a severe allergic reaction to insect stings in their lifetime. A severe allergic reaction to bee stings can lead to nausea and vomiting, a weak or rapid pulse, swollen tongue or throat, loss of consciousness and even death.

Bee Aggression

Bees sting as a form of aggression. When a hive feels threatened they will swarm the perceived threat. Keep your distance if you find a beehive in your yard. Make sure children and visitors are aware of the hive and know to keep their distance. Loud lawnmowers and other outdoor tools can also instigate a beehive swarm and sting you. If you encounter an aggressive beehive seek shelter indoors immediately!

We had a terrible wasp problem for a couple of years and my daughter is allergic to bees! We tried about 100 other options and then called Mike. He came out the next morning and we haven’t had any problems since! Thanks, Mike! You did a great job! We should have called you sooner!

With the population of bees currently on the decline, it is important to protect them. If you find a beehive in an area where there isn’t any traffic, and no one in your home is allergic to bees, you may consider leaving the hive alone. If you do decide to remove the hive you should never remove the hive yourself. Bees are incredibly territorial and will attack any threat quickly. This makes removing a beehive incredibly dangerous and should always be handled by a professional!
