The Skinny on Live Bee Removal
You may be on the fence about how you want to handle your bee infestation (hopefully not the same fence your bees are on) or maybe you are just looking at some options if such a problem were to occur.
Well, if you are any kind of nature preservationist or against insect cruelty or have the slightest interest in the future of our universe and the “green” movement, then a live bee removal is the right choice for you. You are the person that either knows the important role bees play in our planet or you are a little uneasy of the chemicals in pesticides being released around your home during a bee extermination.
The reasons above may or may not have you dialing 866-904-BEES to set up a an appointment for service. Of course, there are a few other things to consider before you call a bee removal company. Let’s go over these factors before you make any decisions on your next move.
Can I Remove the Bees Myself?
Although, there are plenty of do-it-yourself articles on how to remove bees from your property, these do not guarantee a successful removal. Many people possess the same mentality about this task and have tried multiple unsuccessful attempts to perform a live bee removal. Bee removal is a specialty service and one must have the appropriate tools and protective gear while knowing how to appropriately remove the bees and honeycomb so they won’t come back.
In some situations, cutting into your walls or roof is necessary to retrieve all the honeycombs, so some home repair skills are needed as well. Pro Pacific technicians can repair any holes or incisions made to a wall or roof during a removal and have it back to its original condition.
So you may know all the appropriate steps and some basic knowledge on bee removal but it can be a different story actually doing the job. The phrase “They made that look so easy” applies very appropriately here.
Is Bee Removal Expensive?
It is alot cheaper than your alternative: Expensive medical bills for the treatment of bee stings and venom and the cost of the bee removal supplies on the failed attempt to remove the bees. It can even cost you more if the bees come back and you need to do a re-treat.
Also, if the problem is not dealt with and the hives are left inside your walls or roof for a prolonged period of time, costly damage can occur to the interior walls and other pests will be attracted to the remaining honey from the hives leaving you with another pest problem.
So look at live bee removal as an investment to your property and a protection to your health and wallet.
Do I need to save the bees?
Well with huge corporations sponsoring programs and fundraisers to research and put an end to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), it might not be the worst idea.
This point is brought up again to reiterate the importance of bees to our environment. As you may have heard before, bee pollination contributes to the growth of about 1/3 of all foods we include in our diets. A live bee removal allows the bees to be transported from your property to a local bee keeper so they can continue their part in our world.
Bees not only an important pollinator but they also produce a complete food source for humans, honey, which is consumed for its sweet taste and health reasons. Also, their stingers and venom have been used for centuries to treat numerous diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and tendonitis. The treatment is known as bee venom therapy or apitherapy and many bee venom users have found it very effective in reducing symptoms for diseases like the ones mentioned previously.
