A common problem home and business owners experience, especially during the warm seasons, is bee infestations. Bees forming a nest on your property can cause damage to the structure of your home or business, lead to painful and sometimes dangerous stings, and in some cases may even attract other pests. Many people try to come up with solutions they can handle on their own when it comes to eliminating the bees on their property, from smoking out bees to trying to remove the hive from their land.
A common question people have when it comes to DIY bee removal is: what happens if you block the entrance to a bee’s nest? Will this eliminate your bee problem? Unfortunately it’s normally not so simple. For instance, whenever you are dealing with honey bees, closing them into their nest means you are shutting them into the same space they store their honey and pollen. Many bee hives will have enough honey and pollen to feed off of to last them for months. If you seal a hive up, not only will they be able to continue feeding, there is also a very good chance that they will be able to find another way to exit the nest. This can lead to serious issues for home and business owners who are dealing with bees that have nested in their walls or other parts of the structure of their space.
If you are able to successfully trap a hive of bees in their nest for an extended period of time that outlasts their food supply, theoretically, this could be an effective way to eliminate your bee infestation. However, it is important to remember that bees play a very important role in our ecosystem. Without bees we would see a halt in the pollination of many of our crops, flowers, and other natural resources.
