Bees are considered one of the most important components of our ecosystem as they not only provide us with yummy honey but also by plant pollination. About one-third of the vegetables and fruits that we consume are there because of pollination done by bees. We should be thankful to them for this but if your home is infested by bees then it can be a big problem for you as most of the bees are equipped with a sting that can be very painful for you. And if by any chance you or any of your family members are allergic to bee sting then it can be lethal for them to stay in a place infested by bees as a few stings can get them straight to an ICU. So call for professionals like major Pest Control for taking care of these bees if you are not in the state of handling them on your own.
To start a bee treatment the first thing you should do is search for the beehive or place where the bees are hiding inside your home. They generally choose cold and dark places as their body gets heated up due to flying and collecting honey all day long. As per Major Pest Control Sydney employees experience, below are listed some of the common places where bees love to build their hives:
It is not that difficult to know where the bees are hiding near your house due to their distinct buzzing sounds. Just follow the sound or look for the place where the bees are flying the most and you will soon discover their place or hive. Once the place is discovered the work of bee pest control can be done easily. But if you think the infestation is higher too much for you to handle then get in touch with Major Pest Control Sydney and we will help you.
There are so many ways of bee treatment but many of those require chemicals that kill the bees. In Major Pest Control Sydney's opinion bees are very important for our nature and should be taken care of without killing or hurting them, if possible. So here are several home remedies for bee pest control that you can practice to make your home a bee-free zone again.
It is the best and cheapest method of bee pest control. Go ahead and get a spray bottle in which you will put equal parts of water and vinegar, white vinegar preferably. Mix it well and start spraying this mixture near the hive. Make sure that you don’t spray it directly on the hive as it can prove lethal for the bees. Also, spray it on the flowers near your home so that they can't get any nectar from them. Repeat this as long as you don’t see a single bee near your home.
Many people know them as a mosquito repellent but they don’t know that it can also be used as bee repellent. Bees don’t like the smell of these candles and if you burn these candles near the place of an infestation then you will notice that the bees will slowly go away and finally there will be no more bees. This may take some time to fully remove bees but it won't hurt the bees.
If just vinegar was not enough for irritating the bees then try adding garlic to the potion. Put some garlic cloves in vegetable oil and let it sit for 2-3 days and after that grind them and put it inside the vinegar and water solution. This solution has a very strong smell, so keep your pets away from the places where you spray it. This will help you in forcing the bees to dislocate in no time.
Beekeepers are the people who breed bees to collect honey. If you have beekeepers in your locality then it is the best way to get rid of bees. The downside to this method is that beekeepers are only interested in honey-producing bees and they may not help you if you have a carpenter bee infestation.
Just like other bugs, bees are also not a big fan of natural oils and peppermint oil is the most effective one out of all the essential oils. The bees can't bear the smell of peppermint so you can mix it in water and spray it all over the house. It will not only help you in getting rid of bees but also make your house smell pleasant and relaxing.
It’s the oldest method in the books of bee treatment. This method is useful mostly when there is a beehive in the trees. To get rid of the bee's nest you have to burn something that produces a heavy amount of smoke(like cardboard or dry wooden pieces), under the tree. Bees are intolerant to the smell of smoke and as a result, fly away quickly.
All of these methods are safe for both you and the bees. But to get rid of bees nest on your own can be a difficult job because when bees are disturbed they become angry and before they leave your place completely, they can sting you while you are trying to remove them. That’s why you should call Major Pest Control Sydney for getting rid of bees in Australia as we have trained professionals that will take care of bee's problems for you. We work with full dedication to and ensure the protection of you and your loved ones.
