How to Get Rid of Bees

If you've been searching online for "how to get rid of bees," then you're probably already dealing with a serious bee problem.

Perhaps you have a hive in your backyard, under the eaves of your house, in your attic, your garage, or near your place of business. Maybe you've already been stung, or you're increasingly worried that someone will get seriously hurt any day now. Plus, if you or one of your family members is allergic to bees, then the problem is even more critical.

Regardless of how severe the situation is, the only way you're going to have peace of mind is to remove the bees and hive from your property altogether.

The question is: how? Before you risk getting stung hundreds of times, follow the steps below to see how to get rid of bees the right way .

How to Get Rid of Bees - Do's and Dont's

- DO call a professional immediately.
This is the single most important step of bee removal! If you have a bee problem, it's imperative that you use a professional bee removal expert to fix the situation for you. Their experience, knowledge and skills enable them to effectively remove the bees, quickly and safely, ensuring that no one gets hurt.

A bee expert will generally use a special vacuum to safely collect the bees into a container, or they will shake the bees into a bee box. From there, the bees will be transferred to a bee apiary or to another beekeeper. The bees' nest will be destroyed and removed to ensure that it doesn't become home to other bees in the future.

Throughout this whole process, the professional beekeeper will use special equipment and protective gear, which is essential for proper removal of bees. As you'll read below, this is NOT a job for amateurs, which is why you should always call a professional.

- DON'T try to destroy the beehive yourself.
If you're thinking about taking a long pole, stick or baseball bat to destroy the hive, think again! Even if you have a 50-foot pole, you will not be safe once you disturb a nest full of 30,000 to 50,000 bees.

By knocking down the hive or disturbing it in any way, you will significantly increase the risk of being stung. This is NOT the proper way to get rid of bees, and it is completely inadvisable!

- DON'T spray the hive with a water hose or bug repellent.
We hear about this all the time. Someone spots a beehive at the back of their property, so they get out the hose and try to spray it with water. There are two main problems with this approach: 1) It's unsafe, and 2) It will do nothing to remove the bees.

Don't waste your time (and risk your wellbeing) by spraying ANYTHING at the bees. Let an expert show you how to get rid of bees, so you don't have to do it yourself.

- DO leave the nest alone until a professional comes.

The best thing you can do to avoid being stung (and prevent others from being stung too) is to leave the beehive alone. If possible, don't even go near it. Keep your distance from the bees and they will not bother you. Instead of worrying about how to get rid of bees yourself , wait for the experts to arrive and they will solve the problem fast.
