Practicing Environmentally Responsible Bee Removal

Pollinator health is extremely important to us here at Home Pest Control. We keep up with the latest environmental news and pay special attention to the current research and recommendations made by Bayer Bee Care and Pollinator Health.

The Bayer Bee Care program addresses the challenges that pollinator bees are facing in our modern world by providing extensive resources in the hands of educators, gardeners, researchers, and the general public alike. Bayer Bee Care is an excellent and up-to-date resource for anyone concerned with bee health.
Pollinator Health is another fantastic resource that highlights the difference between pollinators and other pests and why special care is necessary. The program was created by folks at the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), who are committed to keeping households across the country safe from dangerous and destructive pests. 

Why We Need Bees

Pollinators are currently an essential part of our national food production, and our society would suffer greatly if we lost them. Oranges, avocados, and apples are just a few of the hundreds of popular crops that require pollinator insects to complete their life cycle. Without bees and other pollinating insects, we may not have these foods on our plates.

How Pesticides Affect Bee Health

Bee populations have been drastically declining over recent years. While many of the reasons for this dramatic decline are unknown, it’s clear that overuse of pesticides is a major factor. 
Pesticides themselves are essential for the functioning of human society, as without them, we’d be living too closely to pests, and wouldn’t be able to live in warm climates. With that said, they can also be harmful to human safety and food crops when used by non-professionals that over-apply or fail to follow the proper directions. In order to properly protect pollinator populations, pesticides should only be applied by licensed professionals. 
Pesticides used in the professional pest control industry are always approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for environmental and human health. Protect yourself from the mistakes that you might make during pesticide application, and leave the use of chemicals to the professionals.

How You Can Help: Eco-Friendly Pest Control

As a responsible citizen and consumer, it’s critical that you do your part in keeping our national bee population safe. There are many things that you can do to ensure the abundance of pollinating bees for years to come. 

Contact a Professional Pest Control Service

This is not saying that you ought to prioritize the bees’ interests over yours, but rather that contacting an insect professional who can remove the bees from your living space without using harsh chemicals will go a long way in protecting bee populations.

DIY Methods Could Do More Harm Than Good 

Whether you think they’re “natural” or not, DIY methods do not completely eliminate pest populations and require many repeat treatments. These methods for controlling insects are not approved by the EPA and could harm your children or your pets.

Make Sure Your Pest Control Company Uses Green Methods

When you’re looking for an environmentally friendly pest control company, make sure that the company you choose uses green pest control methods. Regardless of where you live in the US, you should be able to find a company that uses the best methods to protect human health and the environment. 
Here in South Carolina, Home Pest Control always uses the most up-to-date and environmentally friendly pest control methods. 

Safe Pest Control For You And Your Home

Bees are an important part of the earth’s ecosystem and our national food system, but you shouldn’t have to live with them in your house or on your property. Attempting to eliminate bees on your own can result in stings, chemical poisoning, or unwanted consequences for these tiny but important creatures. 
Contact a professional to remove bees from your property in a safe and effective manner. If you’re curious about the plight of the honey bee, check out these interesting facts about bees and other stinging insects.
