Why Honey Bee Relocation Is Better Than Extermination

If you have honey bees in your home or on your property, then you want to consider having someone come out to relocate the bees for you. When dealing with honeybees, relocation is going to be better than extermination, and this article should help you to understand why this is.

Exterminating honey bees in your home can cause damage

When someone comes out to exterminate honey bees that are in the walls of your house, the process can leave you dealing with lasting damage to your home. The entrance will be sealed off, and the insecticide that is sprayed in the area will kill the honey bees that are inside the walls. The insecticide not only kills the bees, but it also contaminates the honey that is in the walls. When the temperature rises, such as during the hotter summer months, the honey can melt, and eventually, it will end up seeping through the walls, affecting everything from the drywall to the paint. That honey can also be attractive to a variety of pests, so you might even end up with a pest infestation inside of your home. 

Honey bees are important to the environment

Honey bees play an important role when it comes to the environment because a lot of the crops depend on honey bees to pollinate the crops. If there was an overabundance of honey bees, then exterminating them wouldn't be such a concern. However, the numbers are declining, so every colony matters to the environment. Relocating them fixes both problems because it gets them off of your property and allows them to continue doing their job. 

Insecticide can affect hives miles away

While you may have someone come out to your property to exterminate only the honey bees you are dealing with, the insecticide that is used can end up affecting other bee colonies that are close to the property it was used on. This means when you are having the honey bees on your property exterminated, you may be accidentally taking out many other honey bees in the area. 

Conclusion

If you have a honey bee infestation, you should make sure the person coming out knows that your intention is to have the honey bees relocated so they don't come out to your home with the intention of exterminating them, and they can let you know upfront if you need someone else to tend to this job.
