What You Should Know About Bees, Hives and Bee Removal In Queens

If bees have taken up residence too close to your home, call the professionals for bee removal in Queens. A bee sting is painful and countless bee stings can be fatal. Leave the removal to an expert and don’t try to do this on your own. Below you’ll learn about bees, beehives and what you should do if you find a hive on your property.

Types

Bees hibernate during the winter and they come out in full force when the weather starts warming up in the spring. The three most common species of bees are honeybees, bumble bees and carpenter bees. Bumblebees can sting more than one time because they pull their stinger out instead of leaving it in your skin. A honeybee can only sting you once, because its stinger is left in your skin. Male carpenter bees are unable to sting and only females will sting if they’re provoked. When stung by a bee, you may have itching, redness or swelling at the site of the sting.

Hives

Bees will often use a hollow tree or some other natural cavity to build their nest or hive. Bees spread hard plant material on the cavity walls and attach the honeycombs to the sides and top of the cavity. The bees leave narrow tunnels alongside the edges of the comb for travel. If you find a beehive, do not disturb it and do not make loud noises or wave your hands in the air. If the bees start swarming after you, run to the nearest shelter and shut the door behind you.

Removal

The only way that you can get rid of bees around your home is to have the hive removed. If you’re not familiar with bees, you should let a professional that’s experienced with Bee Removal in Queens do the job for you. The removal of a hive can be dangerous if you don’t have the necessary equipment or knowledge.
