An increasingly large problem is developing in the East Florida area; bees. With the shrinking eco-structure in these areas bees are looking for new places to live. They are turning to houses, abandoned cars, boats and other structures that are not commonly used or disturbed. A+ Animal Removal Service providing animal and dangerous insect removal for the Florida East Coast has noticed a steady increase of bee related the calls. What is more surprising is the fact that many of the bee colonies that we are encountering have been building, in some cases, as much as 10 years.

A quick scan on YouTube will show you untrained and unlicensed people attempting to remove bees and the hive, even trying to give you tips on how you can do the same. It is important to note that the removal of bees in Florida by an unlicensed individual is illegal, but more importantly is dangerous. When bees feel threatened they do not attack as individuals but as a collaborative effort based upon the size of the threat; so even a small child can be aggressively attacked by hundreds of bees as a result a disturbed hive that feels threatened. A+ Animal Removal Service is specifically trained to handle the removal of bees and the hive safely and humanely.

People that are injured as a result of a disturbed hive can be liable for suit in Florida courts, not to mention in the environmental impact groups get involved.
Seeing a few bees flying around on a quiet afternoon in East Florida is not an uncommon site; however, seeing more than 25 in a confined area such as a backyard… Is. When you see that many bees in a localized area it does bring awareness to the fact that there may be a hive nearby. Like most Florida neighborhoods, if there are not a lot of trees for the bees to populate they may have taken up residence in an attic, walls, shed, boat or old car that may be just sitting around. If you are seeing bees on the inside of your home, look for their travel pattern. Bees do not fly randomly; they have an objective course as they make their search and then return back to the hive. If you see them flying through the home, cautiously look to see where their destination is: the garage, a crack in the wall, air-conditioning vents leading to the attic or and attic access point as examples.
Bees do not build their hive in high-traffic areas; they build it in areas that are generally not disturbed. We have (A+ Animal Removal Service) found bees building their hive inside of the walls on the backside of houses where they can come and go as they please, sometimes for years before the homeowner realizes that there’s a problem. The longer the bees are there the greater the hive can become. When the hive is constructed, over a period of time, it will fill up every inch of usable space within the cavity that the bees are building in. Whether this is a wall between the studs, inside the cinderblocks or inside the hole of a boat the hive will take the form of the cavity that they are building within.
Bees, like other insects and critters, can gain access to your home in the smallest of places. A Crack in the wall, roof vents, unprotected opening around and eve; it doesn’t have to be very big opening to get a little bee to become a big problem.
