.Bees are quite common, and just about everyone has had a run-in with them at one point or another. While we understand and appreciate all of the hard work that they do for the ecosystem, it is just as important to understand that they do not mix well with humans and when bees are near your home it can be a recipe for disaster that needs to be addressed.

The Danger

Bees typically will not attack people unprovoked, but the problem is that it is easy for them to view you as a threat accidentally. Children playing will often inadvertently get too close to a hive, and the bees inside might perceive it as an attack and swarm to defend the hive. It is crucial to prevent anything like this from happening by exercising caution and knowing the risks.

A bee sting can hold a wide range of severity from a mild irritant to a major allergic reaction, but regardless of how they affect you, one thing to keep in mind is that if bees are swarming and stinging you multiple times the effects will be compounded and significantly worse than an individual sting.

Where Are the Hives?

Knowing where the beehives are commonly located is an easy way to stay alert and cautious. People usually assume that hives are only in trees, but they can be almost anywhere. They can be dangling from a high-up branch, or as close to home as being right on your porch. Hives don’t even need to be suspended in the air as they can be found beneath a bush in the ground. No matter where the hive is, it has no place near your home, and proper measures need to be taken.

Bees can find small holes and build hives within wall cavities, inside your attic, above your ceiling, or inside soffits of your house. Hive inside the building creates additional risks. Bees can find their way inside the living area of your home. The honeycombs will attract other pests like cockroaches, rats, and raccoons. 

Safe Beehive Removal

Bees can be dangerous when left unchecked which is why you should never tolerate a beehive on your property. If the beehive is inside yourhouse, you need to completely remove the nest and honey, clean the area, and repair the damage. 

Because of their dangerous nature, never attempt to deal with bees on your own, but instead, call the experts at Critter Control® of Tallahassee to provide you with a safe and effective solution to your bee issues. Receive your free consultation by calling us today.

Our current technician is very good.  He always calls us the day before so we know when he is coming.  He also has done a very good job keeping pocket gophers in check.

Mike did our service today. He was awesome! He addressed and resolved a couple of critter issues we were having. It's really helpful to be reminded when he was coming and texted me when he was on his way. Thank you for the great service!

We appreciate that your company was able to rid our property of the squirrel activity that we observed. We were concerned that the squirrels would dig under the foundation of our house (which had happened to a neighbor in our area).

Thank you for doing what you said you would do to eliminate this squirrel activity.

We personally have a bad infestation for a while, Critter Control has been stellar in the customer service/ communication department, We are still working on the infestation but CC has been absolutely above and beyond our expectations with some of our projects hurdles.

It has been very effective at reducing the number of mice, lizard, and snake sightings. During one visit Edgar removed a rattlesnake he came across. We may see a snake maybe two to three times during the spring and summer months, but it has been far less than before.

Melinda is a true professional.  She has helped us maintain a "critter-free" home.  Whenever a mole decides to visit our property, she is right on top of it.  Her recommendations about mosquito control made a big difference for my boys to be able to enjoy our backyard.

We use Critter Control to deter snakes. We haven't seen any since using the monthly service. They are quick to answer questions and explain snake behavior. Also, if any are found they remove them with no extra charge.

Have been using for almost 10 years after a record rat invasion. The help I had back then was like a super-helpful friend taking a few weeks to rid me of that invasion. Over the years I have had a few other representatives. They are always nice and helpful.

On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings.

Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.

She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

Daniel did a great job pigeon proofing. We have a huge pigeon problem in our neighborhood and the pigeons were roosting in the gutters of my house and my two next door neighbors, who also had nests in their gutters and under their air conditioner. Pigeon poop filled our gutters, and was piled on the outside floor when I bought the house. Since Daniel's pigeon proofing, and my neighbors also pigeon proofing their gutters, fireplace chimney, air conditioners, and removal of nest, I rarely see pigeons any more. Only the lovely native sparrows, robins, vermillion fly catchers, and mourning doves visit our property now.
