Stinging Insect Control

During the springtime, it’s common to see bees buzzing about as they pollinate plants and flowers all throughout Macon. While a crucial part of the ecosystem, bees can become an issue if they are living in large numbers on your property. Bees generally won’t act aggressively towards humans unless they feel that their hive or queen is in danger, in which case they may sting. For this reason, it is important to have bees or bee hives professionally removed if you discover them on your property.

Honey bees vs Africanized Bees

If a hive is developing on your property, it’s important to understand what type of bee you’re dealing with. Is it a honey bee or an Africanized honeybee? An Africanized bee is smaller than a typical honeybee but they pack much more of a punch. Each bee will sting a person multiple times over, which injects more poison into their victim. This is the reason they’re so dangerous. They’ve also been known to group together and pursue a person up to ¼ a mile. If you notice you have African bees on your property, don’t approach them. Retreat and let a professional handle this dangerous situation.
