Pest Control Services in Jaipur states that it is common to find thousands of honey bees swarming trees, bushes, or other objects during spring. Honey bee swarms are rarely aggressive and are only looking for a place to relocate their nest.
Why Honey Bee control?
Once honey bees become established, they begin to build combs for rearing cluster of bees and storing food. Although colonies may not do structural harm to the building, occasionally they use water to soften drywall and remove it in order to expand the nesting area.
In case, the colony is killed and not immediately removed, honey will ferment creating gas that causes honey in the cells to burst and leak through walls and ceilings. This can cause a lot of structural damage.
It can be dangerous when bees are nesting too close to a home or recreational area, especially where children or people sensitive to bee venom are present.
The bees also leave a bit of beeswax at their clustering location, so there are chances that additional swarms can come in future drawn by scent of beeswax.
Need for Professional Help
Whenever you interfere with the routine activity of honey bees there is risk of being attacked and getting stung.
Don’t try to remove the colony by yourself unless you have experience and proper equipment.
Honeybee Treatment Process
1. Honey Bee treatments are always conducted at night, when bees are least active and less likely to sting.
2. Equipments usually worn during treatment are :
a) Light colour, heavy coveralls or a bee suit
b) High-sleeved gloves of canvas or leather
c) A hat or helmet with secure-fitting veil
3. Next step is to locate the nest. In case nest isn’t visible then listening device is used to pinpoint the exact location. At night numerous small holes are drilled directly into the nest from inside of the structure. Even if the nest is outside the structure, in both the cases insecticide is sprayed.
4. Pest control professionals generally kill the bees before removing them.
5. Apart from pest control professionals, other people are made to leave the room for safety purpose.
Preventing Future Nesting
1. After bees have been removed, all holes that lead to spacious cavities in the building must be sealed.
2. Larger potential entrances can be covered with screen having many meshes per inch.
3. There are chances that bees can find an entry to space adjacent to the previous nesting. Such cavities need to be filled to make them unavailable for nesting.
