There’s nothing quite like enjoying a nice meal outside your home. Why go far when you could always have a nice picnic right at home? Invite some friends over, get a few drinks, and have a great time.
Now, as lovely as that sounds, nothing ruins the mood faster than a horde of bees or a swarm of wasps buzzing around you and your friends while you eat. This is especially a problem if there happens to be someone deathly afraid of those insects in your group.
So, chaos has erupted, and you’re wondering, where could it have come from? Well, first off, it’s unlikely that your group would get swarmed out of nowhere. Imagine if this happened in an office or business setting. It would be even more chaotic.
But one way this might happen is if you had a severe infestation in your home. Bees and wasps aren’t necessarily dangerous. They’re most likely to attack only when provoked. While it’s normal to see hives outside your home, a nest inside the property can be dangerous.
Here are some signs it’s time to call pest management:
A Constant Buzzing Noise
If there’s a nest of bees or wasps inside your property, it will be tough to miss the sound. It’s not electricity, and it’s not one of your machines. Bees and wasps gathered in your property make a distinct sound that is hard to miss. So, if you hear either a faint or loud and constant buzzing, you can bet that it has to do with an infestation.
Mysterious Holes Around the Property
It’s not normal to find random and mysterious holes around your property. If you’re seeing them either in one spot or several around the establishment, it can be caused by bees or wasps. This is a sign that they’re making themselves comfortable and quite at home on your property.
Carpenter bees, in particular, are also known to go through hard plants around your property. All their activities trying to go through your walls, paper, and more are bound to leave evidence behind. Look for things like sawdust all over your establishment. Be mindful of any fallout, as this is also a strong indicator of an infestation.
Active Hives Within Your Property
Active bee hives or wasp hives in or around your property are a sure sign that you either have or will soon have an infestation on your hands. Of course, there is a chance they might not enter your establishment.
But depending on the weather, there’s also not much that will stop them from making a home inside your property. At this point, once you find active hives, it’s time to find reliable pest management and let them handle it safely from there.
Lastly, the most obvious sign of an infestation is when you start to see them everywhere. It’s normal to see one or two, maybe even three, once in a while. However, there is no way your property isn’t infested if you’re seeing multiple bees or wasps throughout the day on your property.
Once you spot them in and around your establishment, it’s highly likely that you already have a massive infestation on your property. You should know that this can be a huge problem. The best thing you can do is avoid them when you see them and call pest management as soon as possible.
The Bottom Line
Remember that bees are an endangered species, and you cannot handle wasps without the right equipment. They’re still essential and truly useful to the ecosystem. So if you find yourself running into an infestation, make sure to call the appropriate professionals and get them removed safely.
