When it comes to dealing with bee swarm removal in canberra, only a fully licensed and equipped pest control professional should be tasked with the job. This is not a chore to be tackled by your weekend do-it-yourself. If you are allergic to a bee sting or are not quite sure if you are, any job that relates to bees can potentially be fatal. Also, just because you might not be allergic to a wasp sting certainly does not mean that you will not be allergic to the sting of a bee, since their venom is verydifferent. A person that is allergic to a bee sting can in some rare instances, minutes after being stung, suffer systemic, life-threatening allergic reactions, that can cause difficulty in breathing, blockage in the throat, fainting and swelling (anaphylactic shock). If any of these symptoms begin or it is known that a person is allergic to bee or wasp stings, a physician must be contacted immediately.
A honey bee swarm will occur when the Exterminators current hive becomes overpopulated and a new colony must be formed to handle the excess. The original colony will form a new queen, with the old queen flying away, taking a part of the colony with her. The swarm will then land on any one of the following: a branch, hollow tree, one of the eaves of a roof or the side of a house making this new location another colony. This normally happens in the spring and early summer. If you suffer from bee allergies and are fearful of one bee sting, imagine what a whole swarm must look like, so as we always highly recommend in handling of insects, especially those that can be fatal, should be handled by a fully trained, licensed and equipped pest control professional.
In addition, it should be noted that both bees and wasps have a very important role in the ecological cycle. Bees are very important to agriculture, in that honey bees are responsible for the pollinating 80% of all legumes, vegetables and most fruit, in addition to a great many of the ornamental plants that are grown in our own landscapes. Whereas, wasps also have an important role as predators, as they are responsible for keeping flies, crickets, caterpillars band other insects and pests at bay. Normally a pest control professional will contact a bee keeper or an apiarist to take over ownership of these extremely useful and helpful insects. The pest control professional and the bee keeper will perform their duties at night, when the insects are less active and are easier to handle.
It cannot be stated enough however, that when it comes to bee swarm removal that this task be handled only by a canberra pest control professional.
