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.

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.
