When those spring temperatures start to come, that is when the bees come out of hibernation and you realize that your home has housed some unexpected guests. Bee removal services will be needed to dispose of these insects.
Both bees and wasps are considered nuisances because some of these insects have the ability to sting. But even though they are thought of as nuisances with all their buzzing and stinging, they are highly beneficial and necessary for pollinating plants. However, no matter how beneficial they are, you do not want an infestation to take place in your home.
An infestation can take place when a colony is looking for a new place to start building a have for their queen. It tends to happen when the weather starts to get cooler and the bee colony wants to find a warmer place to stay.
During the colder months, different types of bees settle down in different ways. For example, the worker honey bees will form a protective circle around their queen bee. They will shiver to keep her warm and go in to a hibernating trance. If a hive of honey bees enters your home for the colder months, you may have no idea of their existence until the weather starts heating up and they awaken.
Horned faced bees live for only six weeks. They typically do not live in a colony like the honey bees but each female bee will make her own nest and lay eggs. Eventually, these eggs will hatch in to larvae and feed on the food their mother has left them. Once the larvae have finished eating, they will spin a cocoon around themselves and stay there for an entire summer. When the season turns in to fall, they will emerge as adults. The new adult bees will spin a cocoon again for winter and finally come out in spring. One lone female bee can start a new generation in your home without your knowledge of it for months to come.
If you live in an older home, you may need to fear against carpenter bees because the carpenter bees love to nest in old wood. In the cold, winter months, the carpenter bees will look for the old wood to hibernate in for the duration of winter. When spring comes around, the carpenter bees will come out and look for mates.
It is in these winter months that you may not think to be proactive against bees in your home but even if there is no buzzing around, the damage and danger is still there. It is just in a hibernating state lulling you in to a false sense of security. While there is no way of knowing if you have a hive of sleeping bees located in your home, once spring rolls in you will want to have the number of one who specializes in bee removal services on hand. Even if the bees leave of their own accord, you will still want a specialist in bee removal services to get rid of the hive and ensure that the bees do not come back to nest. While the bees can inflict damage of their own, it is the hive that you have to worry about, especially if it is the hive of a colony of honey bees. The honey can leak out through the walls which attract more bugs and may even mold. For such tiny insects, they can cause a lot of damage if they are not properly removed.
