Bees are naturally attracted to places that have numerous trees. If provoked, they can turn out to be quite aggressive. They are extremely active at day time and move in groups when threatened. Removing a beehive is a risky job unless you know the dos and don’ts involved in the procedure.
If you have spotted a beehive too close for comfort, your first job should be to identify what type/species of bees they are. For this, you can search the internet. You can also ask your friend or colleague who has specialized in entomology. After you have identified the type of bees, you can buy a suitable beehive removal spray. You will find such sprays in any pest control stores near your locality. Some sprays will mention the amount of distance you should maintain with the beehive while spraying the pest remover. Buy one accordingly.
Next, wait until the sunsets. Dusk or nighttime would be perfect for beehive removal. They are less active at night time and will not fly around much. Nevertheless, you have to wear protective clothing before undertaking the task. Cover your hands, legs and feet with gloves, socks and shoes. Cover your face with mask, eye with goggles and your hair as well. Use a duct tape to seal any opening in your fabric. Maintain a minimum of seven feet distance between you and the beehive. Use a flashlight to see if there is any activity. If there is none, spray the pest remover and retrieve into your home immediately. Wait for thirty minutes and repeat the procedure again. Now, you can simply use a broom to knock the beehive off. Burn them or dispose them in an appropriate manner.
