How do you know if you have bees inside your wall?
Bees are very sneaky when building their nests. Chances are you will never see one if it is inside your wall, so you need to look for other signs. First, if you notice bees inside your home even when you have bug screen doors this is a good indicator they have another route into the home. Once you notice them inside the house, keep an eye on where they go; bees will always go back to their nest and you will be able to follow them. If you notice that bees tend to all go through the same crack in the wall, that’s where the nest likely is. You can spot them flying into their nest from either inside or outside your home, once you find the nest it is time to remove it.
How do you get rid of bees inside your wall?
The best way to remove bees from inside your wall is to call a beekeeper. Bees are precious and should not be harmed when possible, but that doesn’t mean you have to let them live in your wall. The beekeeper will come to your home and then take the bees away and relocate them to a new home that isn’t in someone’s wall. The beekeepers will open up your wall and then hoover up your bees. It sounds outrageously strange but that is genuinely how it is done. They sometimes gas the bees to make them more docile beforehand, but not always. Once the bees have all bee hoovered up they can be safely relocated.
