How to Get Rid of Honey Bees

While it's essential people remain conscious of the decline of Honey Bees, if they become a threat to a person's home structure, homeowners should remedy the issue. First, the homeowner should determine the location and severity of the infestation. If the swarm is dense or the hive is in a difficult place, it's best for the homeowner to contact a professional.

If the hive is only a couple of days old, then the colony likely has not had enough time to build a strong comb structure. The homeowner can then inject a bee control pesticide into the infestation area. Once the pesticide is applied, it affects all of the honey within the hive as well. When the hive is older than a couple of days, a "naturalization" process can be used. This process involves the complete removal of all bees, hive, and honey that may be part of the infestation. This removal is essential in preventing mold development or future pests which may be attracted to the sweetness of the honey. After removing the entire infestation, a wash down with soapy water will clean the area.
