Who Can Repair Honey Bee Damage?

Having honeybees on your property has its drawbacks other than the potential of being stung. Honeybees prefer to build their nests inside walls, eaves of your roof, fences, sheds, and garages.

Due to the sheer amount of honeycomb, wax, and honey used to construct them, large colonies can build very heavy nests. The weight of the nest can break or tear wood, sheetrock, and insulation. Honey and wax can also seep through walls, causing a mess inside your home. It’s important to remove the bees and repair damages at the first signs of an infestation.

How Can Bees Damage A Home?

A large bee colony’s weight alone can cause structural damage to your home’s walls, chimneys, and roofs. Honey, melting wax, and waste products can push through walls as hives expand, leaving damaging stains on painted and wallpapered surfaces.

Beehives also have a strong odor that attracts rodents and insects as well as other pests. When a nest becomes too crowded for the bees, they split up and relocate to the nearest available space. Honeybees can fill cavities from the ceiling to the floor and from stud to wall if left unattended.

What Are The Signs Of A Bee Infestation?

The presence of an excessive number of bees flying around your home is the first sign that you may have a bee infestation. This is not only aggravating and stressful, but it can also be unsanitary because bees can bring bacteria in from the outside. If bees seem to be coming from all directions and you can’t seem to get rid of them, you most likely have a beehive colony in your home.

Another sign of a honeybee infestation is dark patches on your walls or ceilings. This happens because honeybees have built a nest in-between your walls or above your ceiling (stains are from excess honey). The honey from these nests will stain your walls and ceilings, leaving dark patches. As a result, this, combined with an abundance of bees around your home, is a sure sign that you have a honeybee infestation.

Bees are likely infesting your home if you see an active bee’s nest inside the structure of your house or in the yard. Active nests can be found in trees, beneath the floorboards of your home, in your garage or shed, or hidden in wall voids. If you suspect you have a bee infestation but don’t see a visible nest, keep an eye on the thoroughfare for bees buzzing around your house.
