What To Do About Bees Around Your Pasadena Property

Bees buzzing around your Pasadena property aren’t uncommon, especially in the fall when their populations reach their peak numbers. These insects are beneficial in many ways, but they become problematic when they nest in your yard or, worse, inside your home. If you have trouble determining how to manage bees on your property, this article is for you. 

We’ll start by explaining the importance of these pollinators and the many benefits they provide. We’ll also review why you might not want them hanging around your property and offer some eco-friendly tips to keep bees at bay. Read on to learn more about stinging insects and our pest control services in Pasadena with the pros from Accutech Pest Management.

We Owe A Lot To The Little Honey Bee

Two types of bees produce honey in our area—the European honey bee and the Africanized (killer) bee. These little bees benefit our world with their honey, beeswax, and other byproducts, which we use in many products, including candles, polishes, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. Honey bee pollination helps to grow around one-third of our food.

Seeing a bee flying around the yard isn’t unusual or cause for alarm. But if you suspect a hive on your property or have many bees flying around, it is time to call in the pros. Contact us today at Accutech Pest Management to learn more about our bee services or to request a free quote.

Why You Don’t Want Bees Hanging Around Your Yard

While we can all be thankful for the many gifts bees give us, having a hive on your property is still risky. European and Africanized honey bees are nearly identical in appearance but have differing behaviors.

The following list explains some of the reasons you don’t want bees hanging around the yard:

  • European honey bees are docile and only attack if there is a threat to the hive, but Africanized bees are much more aggressive.
  • Africanized bees will nest in areas where people and pets may accidentally encounter them, like holes in the ground and mailboxes. 
  • The longer a bee stinger is in your skin, the more venom it will release.
  • Africanized bees attack in larger numbers, so while their venom is no worse than European bees, the results are much more dangerous.
  • Stings are especially dangerous for children or if someone in your family is allergic.

Because of the risks these insects pose and the difficulty differentiating between the two species, we suggest you never approach or attempt to remove a hive on your own. Contact us today at Accutech Pest Management to learn more about our bee control services.
