Bees are known for gathering in or near vents, overhangs, sheds, and other places on the outside of homes that provide a stable place to hang a hive. Some homeowners will be able to see swarms collecting on sections of the home for a few days or weeks before the bees begin building comb for their new hive.
Initially, the swarms tend to be calm. When the bees start to develop comb and a more developed hive area, they become a problem to humans because the bees perceive a threat to their newfound hive.
You may find beehives in inconvenient places on your property after a long vacation, or they may collect without you noticing them during busy seasons. But bees might also develop a residence on properties that are being sold or need some renovation.
Extermination services in Fort Lauderdale, Florida are available to professionally eradicate bees. This is often the safest way to eliminate the threat of stings near or on your property.
Bug Removal in Hollywood Florida
Getting help from a pest control company in Hollywood, Florida with your bees is essential if you have highly agitated bees that keep you away from areas of your home. Whether the bees have taken over a vent, soffit area, or corner of the shed, you don’t want to wait until stings become a risk. Individual stings are bad enough, but bees defending their hive also pose an additional risk because they can swarm perceived threats.
Extermination services in Fort Lauderdale, Florida will use strong pesticides that will get rid of the bees by killing them. Exterminators taking care of bug removal in Hollywood, Florida also perform extensive inspections to make sure that they remove the entire hive structure.
If you are lucky enough to catch the bees early in the hive development, removing the whole hive can be fairly simple. Many hives will be easy to spot as they grow to between four and eight inches in diameter.
However, bees are capable of hiding large sections of their hive flattened against or inside walls. In many cases, thermal imaging detection is the most reliable way to assess how much of a wall is filled in with hive are parts of comb.
Bee sprays will often take two to three days to completely kill the colony. More persistent beehives may need dust or chemical plugs in the wall over a week or more. Larger hives can harbor more eggs and have more bees coming in and out to sustain the colony, so getting an estimate is important for planning your activities near the hive. Once the bees are eradicated, pest control can come back and remove the hive structure to prevent more bees from moving in.
