Those little buzzing bees are doing more than just flying from flower to flower, harvesting nectar for honey. While they’re at work, they’re also pollinating. Pollinating might seem like a small act, but the sum of pollination provides much of our food sources today.

In fact, a third of the foods we eat every single day depend upon pollination. While there are other creatures able to pollinate, bees are the main ones.

Without bees, we’d no longer have honey. Cows would no longer have their favorite foods, and they would die. Many fruits and vegetable would go extinct. While bees are tiny, they are crucial to the food chain!

Have you ever noticed a variety of bees around your home or garden? Most of us are aware that there are more than a few types of bees in Texas, but did you know there are actually hundreds of bee species living in the Lone Star State?

Bumblebees are perhaps the most recognizable, but there are many, many varieties of bumblebees, too. For instance, brown-belted bumblebees, Southern Plains bumblebees, and American bumblebees are just a few found in Texas.

Other native species include honeybees, Eastern carpenter, long-horned bee, leaf-cutters, and the blue mason bee.

Next time you go outside, see how many different bees you can spot!

If you weren’t scared of bees already, then you may be once you come face to face with a huge swarm of them. Typically, a swarm of bees will contain thousands of the buzzing creatures, with a queen as the spearhead. So, if one decides to set up in shop in your backyard, it’s going to be pretty daunting. But, it’s worth noting that swarms are not aggressive, and while it may seem like they’re out to attack, they’re actually very docile.

Then, what is the purpose of a swarm of bees?

Every year, around springtime when the flowers are starting to blossom, a bee colony will begin the process of finding a new home. Half of the original colony, along with the queen, will flock the nest on the search for their new residence. During their journey, they may stop off in places, such as a tree in your backyard, before they continue looking [...]

Despite bees being an incredibly valuable asset to the environment, and hugely beneficial to us as humans, the majority of people are actually petrified of them. You see, whether it’s pollinating fruits and vegetables so we can eat them, helping plants to grow so they can keep emitting oxygen, or producing honey, bees should be protected.

Although, we appreciate that you most likely won’t want a beehive in your home. Although, you should certainly not just exterminate it and kill all of the bees inside, as the number of bees in existence is on the decline. But, on the other hand, bees are very protective and can become aggressive very quickly.

So, what options do you have as a homeowner?

Well, we’ve put together some tips which should definitely make the situation easier to deal with. If you have a beehive in your house, or you just generally want the knowledge, so you’re prepared for [...]

What to Do if There’s a Beehive in Your Backyard

Although they won’t cause any harm if left alone, a beehive in your backyard can present a serious problem for you.

Just imagine how intrusive it could be – you may not be able to sunbathe freely when if the sun’s out and the weather is scorching hot, play outdoor activities as a family, or even maintain the appearance of your garden.

Why? Because if the hive feels threatened at any point, they won’t hesitate to attack and protect their territory. So, that could mean at least 10,000 bees trying to warn you off, although there may be many more than that in the actual hive. You see, hives immerse themselves into walls and trees, so may be much larger than what you can see.

Moreover, the key is to remove the hive safely for both you, and the bees. You don’t want to be stung, and the bee’s population doesn’t need to be reduced any further than it already is. Here are some tips to help you out:

 

1)Stay well away if you’re allergic

First and foremost, bees are essential creatures in the survival of the human race. Mainly, it’s because they pollinate flowers and allow them to flood oxygen into the air. But, they also help fresh fruit and vegetables to grow, meaning we can have nutritious food in our diets that have been naturally produced.

So, it’s concerning to hear that honey bees are actually slowly being wiped out, probably due to the harmful pesticides which so many people opt for. Why are pesticides used? Because, while bees may be wonderful, they aren’t the type that you could live in-and-around. So, when a hive appears in a home, or backyard, people just want to get rid of it straight away.

But, it’s important to do it in a way that keeps you safe – they can become aggressive and sting when provoked – as well as the bee population. We’re going to give you some guidance, but [...]

As we said on one of our entries, most of the time bees are not dangerous, but bees sting, so you should know what to do if you get a bee sting. First of all, you must call 911 immediately if the person has trouble breathing, he is feeling dizzy or faint, hives, a swollen tongue, or has a history of severe allergy reaction.

If the person do not have severe allergy symptoms, you have to remove the stinger first, then control the swelling by applying ice on the area and then treat the pain with some painkiller like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. The area can take 3 to 6 days to heal, if you think you may have a more severe problem call your doctor.

If you keep having bees at your home, Call Us immediately so we can help you and the bees, remember bees should always be respected.

Are you tired of having bee problems? This is a very common problem because people think that using a regular spray or calling pest control is enough, but most of the times it isn’t; the bees keep coming back (or maybe they were never gone), because of the smell from past hives, this means that the hive was not removed effectively.

You should know that if the bees have been in the wall for more than a few days, wax combs probably are stored within the wall. You may not believe, but sometimes, depending on the time the hive was there, the honey can weight as much as 40 pounds within a wall. So if this honey is not removed by a professional, the remaining honey will attract another swarm of bees, or eventually ferment and run down the wall or ceiling.

If you keep having [...]
