They may give you the honey you need to make a delicious treat, but bees can also be bothersome, especially if they sting you. Finding a bee infestation on your property can be a stressful situation, but there are some key things to do to minimize stress and prevent the situation from getting out of hand.

What to Do if You Have a Bee Infestation

  1. Don’t panic. Panicking risks agitating the bees, which can get you stung. If you have a bee infestation, it’s okay to be stressed, but try not to lose control, especially around the beehive.
  2. Steer clear of the bees. You may want to get close to the bees to see what’s going on, but it’s best to leave them alone. There’s a possibility that you might actually be dealing with yellowjackets or other stinging insects, so it’s best to steer clear if you can. If you have to be around the hive for any reason, wear long clothes and protection to protect yourself from getting stung.
  3. Leave the bee handling to the professionals. It can be tempting to try to handle a bee infestation on your own, but without the proper equipment and expertise, you are more likely to get stung or mishandle the bees. In situations like this, it is best to call in the professionals.
