Bee Identification & Prevention

Frequently Asked Questions About Bees

What are bees?

Colorado enjoys the most days of sunshine a year in the United States. This is something that almost all Coloradoans appreciate, but we aren’t the only ones. Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas are also home to an enormous amount of bees, and a bee infestation near your home or business can cause serious issues. Bees always make their nests in close proximity to a good food source, which can lead them to take up residence in the siding of your home, in a tree, or elsewhere on your property. 

While bees play an important part in our ecosystem, they can pose a series of threats if they make a hive near your home or business. Bees can sting or swarm with the slightest provocation, inflicting tremendous amounts of pain — and in worst case scenarios — sending someone with an allergy into anaphylactic shock. Don’t take a chance by letting a hive flourish and grow on your property — contact High Country Pest Control today!

Are bees dangerous?

Bees sting, but that’s not the only reason why you should take a bee infestation seriously. There are many reasons to call a pest control professional if you notice a hive or large amount of bees on your property. Here are a few things you need to know:

  • Honey-filled hives can ferment over time, causing additional infestations by attracting rodents and other insects.
  • If left untreated, bee hives in your walls or siding can cause structural damage to your home or business.
  • Elimination or treatment without removal of the hive will not solve your problem; they will repopulate.
  • Hives that are not removed will decay and cause terrible odors that can damage your property.

Don’t wait around for your bee infestation to reach a critical point. We have been proudly serving Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas for over 25 years — contact High Country Pest Control today to schedule a free consultation.
