Bees play a vital part in reproducing flowering plants and in the creation of the majority of our vegetables and fruits. Without the help of these little winged pollinators, our farmers would be in great trouble. To put it simply, if bees and other pollinators were no longer around, it would mean that there would be no food. But to remove bees that are swarming is a whole different and dangerous problem.
During the time span between April 2015 and April 2016, beekeepers across the United States lost 44% of their bees. Since bee populations are currently on the decline in the U.S., it is more important than ever to protect our bee population in the United States.
Unfortunately, sometimes bees do become a nuisance and can, in fact, become very dangerous to the safety of ourselves and our families, if they have a nest that’s too close to our home. In Arizona, we have the aggressive bees, (killer bees), or basically feral bees.
It is important to remember, that while bees might be in decline in other parts of the country, our bee situation is different with our Africanized bees, due to the fact they reproduce so fast, and will nest in almost any small void, and once honeycomb is created they become super aggressive and protective of their hive. These bees in most cases are not salvageable, our bee keepers don’t want to introduce the Africanized bees to their European bee colonies. As professionals, we are very cautious as to which bees we destroy or save. This is especially important to about 3% of the entire adult population who have an allergic reaction to bee stings and can experience anaphylaxis when stung by a bee. With this in mind, when a bee nest is in an area where a nest simply shouldn’t be, it is important to find a bee control company who will remove unwanted bee nests.
