Bees and wasps have a painful sting, producing histamine in the human body which can be life threatening in some cases. It is important to be careful if you identify a bees or wasps in or around your home or business, as bees and wasps aren’t only annoying and harmful to your family, they can also be quite damaging to your home.
Bees and Wasps often set up nests, hives or swarms in the cavities of the structures, this can require costly repairs if left for long periods of time. A bee hive is full of honey which can cause considerable damage to your home. A wasp nest in a cavity of your home can eat at the plaster, if you see bubbling in your walls or ceilings don’t poke at it, you may get a nasty surprise.
Common situations in which bees can become a significant pest or threat if left unattended to include:
- Swarms are often encountered as a mass of 1,000ʼs of bees either on a bush or tree, or on the wall of a building or structure. Potentially extremely dangerous if disturbed or interfered with.
- An established nest or colony are often found in a wall, vent, a chimney or other sheltered environment and can be identified by a constant “stream” of bees coming and going from the specific point. Potentially extremely dangerous if disturbed.
- Scout Bees are persistent bees that are effectively “reconnaissance bees” for the main colony or swarm looking for suitable locations to establish a new colony. Moderately dangerous, especially “lost” bees that penetrate inside a home, and although almost dead, can still inflict a full and potent sting.
- “Robber” or Return Bees are often when an old or established nest is eliminated and the entry holes are not blocked up, or the honey and comb are not removed, then hungry “Robber Bees” will systematically remove any leftover or residual honey from the nest. These bees are only moderately dangerous and will only appear randomly and inconsistently.
