The Importance of Professional Pest Control for Bees
July 12, 2018
When it comes to controlling pests, there is never a one-size fits all solution. This is especially true when it comes to controlling bees on East Texas properties; bees are tricky pests because, while they are extremely beneficial to our environment, they can place their nests close to or even inside our homes where they can become a huge problem for people and pets. If stinging bees are nesting on your property, it is important to call a professional instead of visiting your neighborhood big box store or searching Google in order to eliminate them through DIY control methods. DIY pest control methods can actually do more than just eliminate bees - they can actually harm the surrounding environment as well as you and your family’s health.
Some of the many reasons it is always best to contact a professional pest control expert to remove a bee nest instead of attempting to eliminate through the use of DIY products include:
- Using DIY products and trying to eliminate a bee nest on your own will put you in close proximity of hundreds, or possibly even thousands, of bees. In our area, there are populations of Africanized honey bees which are highly aggressive and very easily agitated; these bees will swarm and attack a threat at a moment’s notice, putting you in serious danger.
- It is important to identify the species of bee found on your property as honey bees are very beneficial to the ecosystem and you don’t want to accidentally harm this endangered species.
- The improper use of pesticides can negatively affect the environment. When pesticides are needed, professionals are trained to use them in a targeted, intentional manner, which minimizes any environmental effects. Spraying a bee control product around your property is not only dangerous for your health but is extremely bad for the environment.
- Improper use of pesticides can allow the chemicals that are used in them to seep into water supplies, gardens, soil, and even cause air contamination.
Controlling bees that are causing problems on your property is something that should definitely be left up to a professional. Pest control professionals will be able to correctly identify the species of bee nesting on your property, provide eco-friendly treatment and removal services, and if necessary, even work with a local beekeeper to remove honey bees safely from your property.
