Honey Bees in Your Backyard: Why Call for Professional Bee Removal?

Most people who see a swarm of bees in their backyard are quick to grab the nearest can of bug spray, and spray the bugs to death. While it is understandably frightening to see the bee swarm that can potentially attack you, killing them like this bear some unwanted implications on the environment. In the U.S., honey bees are largely responsible for the progress of the agriculture industry. In the last decade or so, there have been alarming reports of decline in bee population. This is why beekeepers and the authorities are urging the public at large to call for professional bee removal in Phoenix or anywhere else, instead of taking matters in your own hands.

Honey Bees in Your Backyard Why Call for Professional Bee Removal

A World without Bees

If you ever watched the animated film Bee Movie, you might have a good idea of what it would be like to live in a world without bees. Right now, one out of every three mouthfuls in your diet can be traced to bee influence, specifically pollination. Also, you have the bees to thank, for the more than $15 billion worth of increased crop value each year. Without the bees, you could also say goodbye to some of your favorite cosmetic products that use honey.

Proceed With Caution

Any insect invasion could be bothersome especially if they’ve made it into your home. However, you should never try to resolve that problem yourself unless you don’t mind getting stung a few hundred times. What any responsible homeowner should do first is to identify what kind of insect he is dealing with. The best way to identify the insect is to find a dead one. Bees are naturally hairy but the more aggressive yellow jackets are smooth in appearance. Just to be safe, call a pest control company or a bee removal firm in Phoenix like Invader Pest Management for more accurate identification.

Removal and Relocation

Too many homeowners make the brash decision to spray the honey bees with insecticide or soapy water. What they don’t know is that honey bees are not usually aggressive. They are mostly harmless, and do not sting, unless provoked. If you have people living in your home or neighbors who are allergic to bees, it’s not an ideal solution. The best thing you can do for yourself and for the environment is to remove them and relocate the colony to a less populated area. The pest control company can handle the complex process of removing the bees from your home, without causing any damage to the bees or your home.
