Bee Season is Upon Us in Tucson!


In the Southwest, we’re coming right into Bee Season. That is when we start to see bees become very active in and around Tucson as they emerge to collect food and grow their colonies. Bees are important pollinators and beneficial insects that play a vital role in our ecosystem. However, they can be a nuisance and even dangerous if they build their nest in areas where people frequently gather, like in a backyard. If you need to get rid of bees in your yard, here are some of the best ways to do it.

A few important things to do as a homeowner:

Inspect Your Home: do you have any cracks or openings in your siding or roofing that might be an inviting place for bees to attempt to make a home? Make sure you check the parameter of your home and seal anything that might be an attractive place for a bee to build a colony.

Cover exposed food and drinks: Bees are attracted to sweet scents and foods, so it’s important to cover all exposed food and drinks when eating outside. This will help to deter bees from gathering in your yard.

Avoid wearing bright colors and fragrances: Bees are attracted to bright colors and fragrances, so it’s best to avoid wearing perfumes, colognes, and bright clothing when spending time in your yard. Stick to light, neutral colors and avoid floral patterns. This is something to keep in mind if you are planning on entertaining at home and spending time in the pool or backyard.

Remember: Be Safe! Hire a Pro!

By far the safest and most effective way to get rid of bees in your yard is to hire a professional pest control company or beekeeper. They will have the equipment and expertise to remove the bees without any harm coming to you or your family. Bees cannot be underestimated as many people die each year due to excessive bee stings or simple allergic reactions.

If you do happen to have a bee problem beyond bees just collecting food in your yard, or you have a bee swarm in your yard, this requires a careful approach. Hiring a professional pest control company or beekeeper like Results Pest and Termite is the best option. If you just are not sure, please Reach Out Today and we answer any questions you might have.
