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.

We know exactly what procedure to follow to ensure your home is secure from bees while the bees are safely relocated.
