Apex Wildlife Control: Honey Bee Removal
Honey Bee Removal
Apex Wildlife Control recently made local Memphis headlines after it removed thousands of honey bees from one of Mississippi’s oldest homes. During the bee removal and relocation Apex Wildlife Control paid close attention, as to not damage the cabin or the precious insects. It was a great honor for Apex Wildlife Control. Not only were we fortunate enough to save such a historic house, but we were able to promote bee preservation in a public forum. Due to poor pesticide regulation and pollution, the honey bee has suffered a tremendous decline. Apex Wildlife Control continues to pursue the preservation of natural habitats & wetlands, as well as animal species. Our two animal preservations contain a number of local plants, wildlife, and bee colonies.
Apex Wildlife Control is much more than your average wildlife removal company. As trappers, we specialize in removal and relocation. This helps us sustain wildlife populations and ecosystems, without damaging beneficial species, thus promoting the natural balance of our beautiful forests. Understanding the importance of honey bees is yet another factor in this balancing act. Not only are honey bees misunderstood by the general population, but their vital role in our food production is underestimated.
Why Are Honey Bees Important?
Honey bees are essential to sustaining food output for our consumption. Since honey bees pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat, without them our grocery stores would be rather empty. Without the natural pollination of bees, you could say farewell to most of your favorite fruits and veggies. Sustain mentions that the reasons they are so important is because, “globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects.”
What Can I Do About My Bee Problem?
If you’ve noticed a large cluster of bees in your house, mailbox, car, or backyard, odds are that it’s just swarming behavior. This is nothing to worry about, as it’s typical honey bee behavior. This swarming is result of a new queen searching for a home. When a new queen splits off the old hive, she takes a handful of worker bees to create a new home for herself. During this search, it is highly common to spot swarming around your property. Although it may seem scary and sudden, it’s nothing to fear. Odds are that the bees will move in a matter of hours to days.
The Bees Have Not Left
However, if the rare chance occurs that the bees do not move, it is recommended to keep a safe distance and call a bee professional. A bee keeper can remove the honey bees and queen, and relocate them to a new home. By doing this you are helping the promote bee survival and contributing back to the global environment. Apex Wildlife Control performs this service for a very low fee.
It is always advised to remove them without pesticides! As trappers, we have learned that poison often leads to worse problem. For example, the old honey in your house could attract new bees, or worse, rot and cause severe structural damage to your house. The pesticides also damage other beneficial species, and attract other nuisance wildlife control. Only an expert in bee removal can safely relocate the bees and solve your problem.
