Honey, we have bees

However, this is of little importance when considering wild bees establishing hives on your home.

Chambers Pest Solutions recommends the following to prevent bees taking up residence around your house:

  • Plug up wall cavities with spray foam insulation and caulking
  • Cover vents with bug screen
  • Remove organic debris from the garden
  • Hang mothballs in socks around the house exterior
  • Wipe down the outside of the house with diesel every 10-15 days

There are two reasons for deterring bees. Bee stings and property damage. Usually, bee stings only cause a painful, temporary reaction – however, if the person is allergic one sting can be fatal. Hives also cause costly damage to the exterior of your home – requiring repainting etc.

Do you suspect your house is at risk of bees? We maintain a pest-free environment for our clients with our Integrated Pest Management Program. We determine what is attracting the bees, and put together a plan to prevent these pests moving in.
