Our team at Florida Bee Removal has extensive experience in dealing with bees, and we are thoroughly familiar with the behavior of various bee species. One important thing to know about bee behavior is that once a hive has grown to a certain size, a new queen will be hatched, and the hive will split in two, with about half the colony leaving to establish a new home for itself. This phenomenon is known as a bee swarm, and while it’s perfectly natural, it can also cause problems for homeowners.
If a bee swarm has invaded your home, you can turn to us to get the bee swarm removal services you need. In this article, we’ll go over some key information you should know about bee swarm removal.
- Bee Swarm Removal is Not Always Necessary – When bees swarm, they will typically remain together in a big clump while scouts leave to look for possible sites to establish a new hive. The bees are not looking to attack anyone when in this state, but may become aggressive when approached, so it’s best to stay away from the area. In many cases, the swarm will move on after a day or two. We encourage you to keep children and pets away from the swarm and keep an eye on its activity—if you suspect the bees are establishing their new home inside your walls, give us a call.
- Bee Swarms Can’t Be Scared Away – In our experience, many people have attempted to throw things at bee swarms in order to encourage them to move on or scare them away. This method does nothing but aggravate the bees and make them aggressive, so we recommend not trying it. Instead, if you really want to get the bees off your property, give us a call to get our bee swarm removal experts on the job.
- Bee Swarm Removal is a Job for Professionals – Lastly, we want to emphasize that you should always hire experienced professionals for your bee swarm removal needs. We know how to lure swarms away without provoking them, and we have the right personal protective equipment to keep ourselves safe from stings, just in case.
