It is sometimes hard to know how to feel about bees. On the one hand, these plump insects are extremely helpful and are crucial to the health of our planet's ecosystem. On the other hand, they are scary and have the ability to hurt us. Having an active beehive on your property directly threatens your health. 

Today we will take some time to talk about bees, bee hives, and how to remove these pests from your Missouri City property effectively. If that is what you are looking for, keep reading.

Factors Bees Look For When Building A Hive

Bees will not settle down just anywhere. These pests are particular about where they build their nests. First, you need to understand what different types of bees look for. 

Carpenter bees look to build little tunnels inside of dry, sun-damaged wood, often on the side of man-made structures. Honey bees like to build their densely packed hives consisting of waxy, hexagonal-shaped cells inside things like pottery, hollow pieces of wood, beams, and similar locations. We have seen nests under floorboards, inside structural pillars, and in a variety of other odd places. 

One thing that all bees look for before they build a nest is a food source nearby. These pests live on a diet of nectar from flowers and other sweet things like honeydew, so they usually have no problem finding things to eat on local properties. 

With this in mind, you can reduce the number of budding plants on your property, hoping that bees and other stinging insects will build their nests elsewhere. Your other option is to look for nests and call in our professionals at the first sign of a problem. 

Why A Bee Hive On The Property Can Be Problematic

Having a beehive on your property is not always a problem. In fact, many people choose to keep man-made apiaries to store and take care of honey bees in their yards. This is great if you want to keep local plants healthy, don't mind bees, and want to gather some honey. It is not good if you live in a neighborhood or hate bees. 

Although most bees are docile and do not go out of their way to sting, they can become aggressive. You are most likely to be stung by social bees working to protect their nests. If you are allergic to venom, you might have a bigger reason to avoid these bugs. Talk with your doctor if you want to better understand your risk. Talk with our team if you wish to help to deal with an active nest in your yard. 

It's Very Dangerous To Try To Move A Beehive On Your Own

Many things in life are possible to do but difficult to do safely. Some people do backflips off two-story buildings, but this does not mean you should do the same without proper training. The same thing is true with relocating bee hives. 

If you do not know the ins and outs of bee control and relocation, you could get severely hurt trying to handle these pests. Although mostly docile, these insects will attack with a vengeance if they think you mean them harm. 

With this in mind, we offer bee control services at Modern Pest Control and are more than happy to assist in relocating active hives off your property. All you need to do is let us know you need help.
