When you see a bee you may have the urge to swat at it or even spray it with a chemical such as Raid. We understand how this can be tempting, especially since bees sting. However, bees are a vital part of the environment and should be protected at all costs. It wasn’t until recently that more and more people begin learning about the importance of bees, but for those who have not, this is for you. Bees quite literally keep our food supply intact, specifically the healthier foods we purchase such as fruits and vegetables. You may be wondering how they do this, and the answer is pollination. Something we all know bees do. But not knowing the extent of how pollination is important has severely harmed the bee population. And it’s up to all of us to educate ourselves and properly preserve bees.
How Does Pollination Help the Environment?
If you are someone who eats fruits and vegetables, enjoys coffee, and wears cotton, then it is in your best interest to help save the bees. Something all of these items have in common is that they come from plants. Plants that bees pollinate. Without this pollination plants and crops would not exist in the large quantities they do now. This means an overall less nutritious diet, potential vitamin deficiencies, and even a more expensive grocery bill. While other insects help out with pollination, none are as effective and productive as bees are. The bees bounce around from plant to plant more frequently and have long tongues that can reach most kinds of plants. To put it simply, bees are genetically the best fit for the pollination job.
Why are the Bees in Danger?
You may not exterminate bees or even see anyone else doing so. This leads to the common question of why are the bees in danger and how this happened. For starters, bees have commonly been seen as a dangerous pest due to their stingers. This has been a big reason as to why many people react to bees with fear and aggression. However, with saving the bees getting more traction and more education being thrown around, people have been more cautious with how they approach these insects. But, loss of habitat is still a major threat to bees. Which is why we sometimes see them choosing to make our homes their nesting site. Our team helps with this by safely relocating the bees away from your home to a habitat that is more suitable for them.
What to Do When There’s a Bee Infestation?
While bee infestations do not happen frequently, they still occur from time to time. You may even be experiencing this problem yourself. The best course of action for this problem is not to exterminate the bees or take matters into your own hands. This will only be a lose-lose situation. The key to keeping you, your home, and the bees safe is to have an expert come on out as soon as you start to notice a problem.

Honey bees are those bugs that we all get kind of freaked out about but know better than to deal with ourselves. As of recent, it has become widespread news that honey bees are a vital part of the environment, with them even being recognized by the Florida Department of Agriculture. This means that even though we may hate to see them near us, we cannot act on our fear and squash them the way we do other insects. For those who think they may have a honey bee problem, this news may be bothersome; however, there are ways to get rid of your honey bee problem morally and effectively. The best way to do this is to have a professional come on out and deal with it for you, such as our team members at Quality Pest Control. We are knowledgeable on all things pest control and can make sure your honey bee problem is fixed without having to hurt any bees in the process.

As we like to say, it’s better to be safe rather than sorry.
What are the Signs of a Honey Bee Infestation?
You may see a few honey bees and assume that they are just making their way around the neighborhood. You may even notice that they have formed a small beehive in a corner of your patio and think nothing of it. This is oftentimes the case, but sometimes they seem to take a pit stop and make themselves at home for the long haul. This isn’t the worst thing if it’s only a few bees; although, this is how it usually starts before they begin to multiply. If you are not sure if you have a legitimate bee problem on your hands then there are a few signs you can keep an eye out for. First things first, one of the definite signs of an infestation is buzzing and humming sounds being heard in your house. This noise is not necessarily coming from inside your home but rather outside your home. If you are hearing buzzing while trying to get some sleep you have more than your average amount of bees hanging around your home. This humming spells out a large problem as bee humming is not particularly loud.
The second sign you should keep an eye out for is wet spots. Wet spots occur when the bees honey has melted and seeped through your ceiling and walls into your home. Again, melted honey is not a problem when there are only a few bees. The few bees would not be physically able to produce enough honey to get this effect; however, a large number of bees could most definitely produce enough honey for it to melt into your home. This sign is probably the worst one because at this point you are facing some serious damage to your home along with an infestation. We recommend calling our team when you begin to notice this problem.
The last sign you will begin to notice is honey bees making an appearance in your home. While this is unlikely to become a big problem for you, you might begin to notice some slipping in when you try and enter your home. This is due to there being so many honey bees that the odds of a bee coming into your home is naturally going to increase. When this happens, try and not panic. Instead, try finding a way to safely let it out of the house without harming it in the process.
If any of the above signs apply to you then you may want to consider giving our team at Quality Pest Control a call. These signs indicate that there is a strong bee population around your home that needs to be removed. While you can easily spray chemicals at these bugs, we strongly advise against it as bees are so critical to the environment. The only way to safely remove the problem is to have a professional come on out and help you. We know exactly what procedure to follow to ensure your home is secure from bees while the bees are safely relocated.
