Honey Bee Control
Unfortunately, there are times where bees create their hives in places that they can not co-exist with humans without conflict. Honey bees like to create their nests in cavities, so they will look for places that are dry and protected, which unfortunately can be behind the siding of homes, brick walls or between drywall voids. Despite honey bees being relatively harmless, their hives behind walls can actually decay the drywall causing structural damages. Along with this, they pose a health threat to those that are allergic to bee stings. Hives in walls can also attract other issues such as rodents and insects that are attracted to the honey.
When did honey bees arrive in the U.S.?
These bees adapted and thrived in many places while in others, they succumbed to parasites and diseases originally adapted to other bee host species. In the early 1600s, English colonists brought hives of Apis mellifera mellifera to the Jamestown settlement. These bees thrived in the old growth forests of the New World, and spread west in advance of the pioneers. These bees were said to be easily excitable, “runny” on the combs, and susceptible to some diseases, however they overwintered well in cold climates. In the mid-19th century, the Italian race of bees, Apis melliferalingustica, was imported to the U.S. and became the most popular race of domestic honey bee due to a gentle disposition and high honey production.
