Bee Attack in Tucson

By Probestpest @ProBestPest

A landscaper lost his life when he was attacked by a honeybee’s. “Swarm of thousands of bees kills man, injures another”  Just for the record let me adjust that heading – it wasn’t a swarm of honeybees – it was a colony or hive within the home that was agitated and attacked. Technically the dictionary classifies a swarm as “a large number of animate or inanimate things massed together and usually in motion”. Typcially I consider a swarm a result of the hive dividing and moving on, but hey its just words.

The main portion of this story and the tragic part is the death and injury of the people. I think is is really important to check your property monthly to determine the possibility of infestation of rodents, bees and or termites.

How to conduct that examination of your home?

  1. Check for open holes, either where pipes enter or weep holes which help with your home ventilation. This home-sealing might help with keeping the a/c or heat inside.
  2. Check high and low, for bees or rodents evidence. This could be rub marks, branches or leaves or more obvious things coming and going.
  3. Trees and bushes shouldn’t touch the home, this provides highways for ants and rodents.
  4. Doors should have doorsweeps or thresholds in place.
  5. Home-seals are an excellent way to keep things out.
