Don’t get stung by bees.

One bee flying around isn’t a huge issue. But if you see a swarm or if you feel as though there’s always a few around, hire a pest control expert to trace it back to a (possible) nest. The change of seasons, into autumn, brings a new environment in your garden, which might attract bees.

If you know you’re allergic to a bee sting, you need to take extra precautions. It’s good to know the best course of action to take for bee infestations, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. The number one rule is never try to remove the colony yourself. This should only be performed by a licensed pest control operator with bee knowledge and the correct equipment.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • If you spot a bee, bring your children and pets inside. Keep them safe indoors for 30 minutes to give the bees time to move away or cluster in a certain part of your garden.

  • Keep clear from the swarm or if you’re worried, call a pest expert to come out immediately to remove it. Do this if you’ve seen families of bees in your garden before.

  • While it’s tempting, never run around barefoot on your lawn. This protects your feet from any bees that have settled on the ground that you can’t see.

  • Don’t use water or any physical ‘armour’ to deter the bees. No DIY method will work and you’ll put your safety at risk. Even if they do fly away, you don’t know where their nest is, so they’ll just keep returning. Also, trying to fix the problem yourself could make it harder for the pest control expert to find the swarm.
