Dangers Associated With Bees
People often inquire if bees in NJ are dangerous and the safe answer is that yes, they are. Any insect capable of stinging should be considered dangerous to the point of using caution around them. Some people have serious allergic reactions to bee stings and depending on their level of sensitivity, may need immediate medical assistance. In these cases, bumble bee or honey bee removal services may become a necessity.
If you are wondering why you have so many bees on your property, remember that bees are looking for food, water and nesting locations. If you have an abundance of flowering plants, bushes and flowering trees, you will be sure to attract bees as they are looking for nectar. Readily available water is also an attractant. Bird baths, wading pools, flower pots and other water fixtures are sure to satisfy the bee’s need for water.
There are a few ways to reduce the attraction of bees to your property. One thing to do is limit the amount of flowers in close proximity to the house. Design your landscape in such a way that most of your flowering shrubs and blooming flowers are as far away from entrances and walkways as possible. You may also keep standing water to a minimum and remove any unnecessary sources of water. This includes your rain guttering on the house. Keep it free of debris so water is flowing properly.
