How a Bee Infestation Can Damage Your Home

January 24, 2024

Bees are known for positively contributing to the ecosystem. They pollinate flowers and help the environment thrive. However, a bee infestation can wreak havoc on your home. There are several ways bees can cause damage to your house, making investing in bee removal services essential.

Property Value

A bee infestation can quickly decrease your property value. According to the World Animal Foundation, most bees can fly up to 15 mph. This can be a disaster when you're showing your property to close friends or potential buyers. Future buyers are less likely to offer when bees buzz around their heads. They'll also think about the cost of bee removal services.

Roof Damage

Bees love to create hives away from humans but still stay close to their food. This makes your gutters and the eaves of the roof the perfect place for their hive. However, bee hives get larger over time, putting additional weight on the channels. This can make them fall off resulting in costly repairs. Over time, debris and honey can build up around the hive, damaging roofing materials.

House Walls

Bees may consume wood on houses or burrow deep into them, creating more property damage and ensuring that your home will need work done. This can result in costly repairs. Over time, it can impact how energy efficient your home is, resulting in higher energy repairs. Not only will it damage your walls, but can also lead to bees flying around in your house. Bee removal is an effective way to give you peace of mind.

Debris and Honey

It's common for honey and debris to build up around the hive. This can cause damage to any structure with a bee hive, including trees, sheds, and porches. The excess damage to landscaping or structures can be expensive. As a homeowner, one of the last things you want to do is pay for necessary repairs. You need to call pest control as soon as you have an idea of a potential infestation.

Tree Damage

When bee hives grow in trees, they tend to accumulate honey. While some love won't hurt a tree, it's unsuitable for trees. Over time, the honey will accumulate, weakening areas of the tree. The additional honey will attract more insects, leading to more infestations.

Bees can produce honey and help gardens thrive. However, bee infestations can seriously damage your house, trees, and property. This can be more expensive than eliminating the bees before they cause damage. Essential pest control specializes in quality pest removals to give you peace of mind.
