When you encounter critters like bees on your property, it is crucial that you take the proper steps to ensure each party’s safety. When spring rolls around, and busy bees are buzzing, you may notice a significant amount of them pollinating around your property. While bees are essential to maintaining a healthy and prosperous environment, they can become a safety hazard to any nearby humans, especially those who may have an allergy.
Dangers of Bees
While one sting won’t do much harm to a person, if you or a loved one are allergic, a single bite could prove fatal. What’s worse is if you stumble across a hidden hive in the ground or one camouflaged in a tree, you could get attacked by a swarm. A plethora of stings can prove quite poisonous even to those who aren’t allergic.
While many bees will build their nests in high places like trees, you can still find some hives in the ground, in bushes, under porches, near doors and under gutters.
You should never attempt to relocate or remove a hive on your own; only a professional bee handler with the proper tools can successfully relocate a hive while the swarm is gone. While there are products on the market that will kill bees, remember that they are crucial to the environment and should be safely removed whenever it is possible.
