In our experience here at Florida Bee Removal, many people need bee removal services without realizing it. If you don’t know what signs to look for, it can be surprisingly easy to miss the fact that bees have established a permanent colony on your property. In this article, we will go over a few ways to tell if you have an established bee colony on your hands so that you know when to give us a call.
- Increased Bee Activity– If bees establish a colony on your property, you will notice an increase in their activity and will see bees on a frequent, usually daily, basis. While seeing bees outdoors may not worry you (depending on your attitude toward these insects, as well as risk factors such as allergies), seeing them indoors definitely should. If you start to see multiple bees inside your home, then it’s likely that they aren’t flying indoors by chance, but that they have made a nest in your walls. In this situation, you should call our bee removal experts to get us on the job right away.
- Dark Patches– Another thing that you will most likely see if bees set up a colony inside your home is dark, sticky patches on your ceiling or walls. These patches are caused by honey dripping through, and that honey will cause serious problems for your structure—it can damage drywall and wood as it seeps through the cracks, and its sweetness will likely attract ants, rodents, and other pests. If you notice honey dripping from your walls, call our team for bee removal services right away.
- Audible Buzzing– A third indicator that there are bees in your walls is their tell-tale sound. If bees have established a colony inside your home, you will be able to hear their characteristic buzzing when you put your ear to the wall—and sometimes the sound may even be loud enough to be heard when you are just passing by the spot. Needless to say, if you hear bees buzzing around in your walls, you should call our team to get the bee removal services you need.
