Common Bee Infestation Areas Around Homes and Commercial Properties
By nature bees are great engineers. Bees don’t need a large opening such as holes,
cracks or crevices in order to establish themselves and start building honeycomb
(hive). All they need is a ¼ inch opening for them to intrude a dead space or cavity and
start building a hive. Having this in mind, cracks and crevices are found in different
types of structures or service box items.
Here are some examples of common areas at were I successfully removed beehives:
- ● Roofs: bees intrude through attic vent holes underneath the eaves.
● Truss heel block (bird block) that has a gap. (underneath eaves)
● Gap where plumbing or an electrical conduit goes in through a wall.
● Irrigation water valve boxes.
● Parapet walls: commercial buildings.
● Winery cellars : retired barrels
● Cinder block walls
● Double side wood fences.
● Underneath a shed floor.
● Crack on a wall.
● Crawl space vents.
● Kitchen and roof air vents on the roof or side wall.
● Bathroom and laundry dryer vents.
● Electrical panels.
● Telephone boxes, cable pedestals.
● BBQ grills.
● Artificial rock formations
● Debris on property: from RV’s, to motorcycles , small boxes to furniture (any small or large debris)
● Tree; trunk, branch, hedges, etc.
Notice that bees will take over almost anything and almost anywhere.
