Honey Bee Removal

Bees by your Pool

Why bees gather by water

All of the bees in the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix Valley need massive amounts of water throughout the summer.  During the fall months, they also store up honey and water to survive through the winter.  One major scene you will find is bees gathering by your pool, or pond gathering water.  In order to stop this, there are a few things you can do, but we also want to explain the ideal situations for bees so you have an understanding of why they choose your particular water source.

Bees cool their hive

Bees utilize water sources mainly to keep their hive cool throughout the extreme Arizona heat; however, the honey also has a certain amount of water content, and there are other food sources, such as Bee bread, Royal Jelly, and also for misting the air like an Evap cooler.  During the summer months, the hive will be maintained about 92 degrees even in hotter temperatures above 100 degrees

Internal temperature modulation is critical

The internal temperature of the hive needs to be maintained about 92 degrees because the wax of the honeycomb and the whole hive will melt otherwise.  This is the home to this superorganism and is very critical to helping maintain the bee population.  The baby bees or “brood comb” are also very sensitive to temperature and will simply die in extreme heat situations.  Simply do a Wikipedia search on bee hive temperature for more information.

Aggressiveness around water

Bees are usually very docile around water simply because they are only looking to gather water for their hive.  They typically only change their attitude when threatened or a person is in their flight path.  Bees make a “beeline” directly back to the hive in order to deliver the critical water resource to the hive, and they tend to waste as little energy as possible getting back home.

Safety tips

Easy safety tips are these:

  1. If bees are coming at you, get inside of a building or car
  2. If bees are near the pool simply move to another area of the pool
  3. If a lot of bees seem to be congregating in a particular area, consult a bee expert removal company to assess the situation.

Bee prevention

The easiest way to prevent bees is to discourage them from getting what they want.  This is: food, water, shade, and a place to live.  That is essentially all they desire.

Bee Removal

If you need an Expert Bee Removal Company you should contact a Beekeeper who DOESN’T have a license.  This reasoning may seem counterintuitive but it’s not.  Most areas that require a license (especially all of Arizona) are only licenses for EXTERMINATORS.  Beekeepers generally don’t carry a license because it is a “license to kill”.  So if you call a Beekeeper or Bee Removal company ask them, “are you licensed?”  If they reply “yes” then hang up the phone and call the Best Bee Removal company Abello Bees in Phoenix Arizona.

How to bee friendly to bees with your water

Purchase a small water source for the bees and keep clean water in it for them.  Keep it closer to the areas of your yard you don’t mind having bees congregate.  Also make certain that you don’t have any areas around the water source that bees may want to move in, like a brick wall, or your house!
