3 Times Bee Infestation Got Out Of Control

Bees are a serious issue, especially in the spring and summer months. The last thing you want to do is get stuck in your home, apartment or car with an angry horde of bees. If you don't do something about a bee infestation soon, you could very well end up with one of these situations on your hands.

1 - The Ledroit Park Neighborhood of Washington, DC

While this neighborhood was once known for its gorgeous rose bushes, it is now known for its terrible bee infestation. The residents of the home came home one Saturday to find thousands of bees living on their porch. In fact, they were not even able to enter the home. When an exterminator arrived, it was discovered that the area surrounding her home had been harboring about 20,000 bees. While the exterminator believed to have gotten rid of all the bees, they were wrong. It was a matter of mere days before thousands of bees came back to the front door and roof of the home. Could earlier steps have prevented this sudden attraction to the home?

2 - A Queens, New York Apartment

Do you think a bee infestation of epic proportions can't happen in the city? One Queens resident discovered approximately 50,000 bees living in their apartment. It started with the resident spotting just a few bees flying around, but the exterminators found swarms of bees living in the walls. In this case, the problem was discovered in such a way that beekeepers could simply move the honeycombs to a farm and allow the bees (and residents) to continue living peacefully.

3 - Killer Bees in the Desert

Killer bees are not just a horror movie staple. Killer bees, also known as Africanized Honey Bees, made Hidalgo, Texas, the Killer Bee Capital of the World. Unfortunately, they haven't stopped there. Most recently, the bees have come to Arizona, soaking up the hot desert sun. One man was stung thousands of times in his own backyard. Worst of all, these bees always feel threatened by movement and vibration, making them difficult to avoid. This is one infestation you want to avoid at all costs.

You certainly do not want to ignore a possible infestation of bees. Without removal of the complete hive, the bees will keep coming back. This is why simply spraying poison fails to garner results. Additionally, these hives tend to smell and attract rodents that will only make your problem worse.
