Bee control tips and hints in South Florida

Remember to keep these things in mind when you are dealing with bees on or around your property.

  • The best advice we give is to avoid bees at all costs, especially in large numbers.
  • You should inspect your property and surrounding environment regularly for colonies and signs of bees. Also be extra attentive for activity when using weed eaters, hedge clippers, tractor power mowers, chain saws, etc.
  • If you do get chased by bees, you want to get inside an enclosed structure, such as a house or car immediately. If you cannot reach shelter, run. Most likely you will be able to outrun bees and will lose them within a quarter-mile.
  • If you are stung, remove the stingers as quickly as possible. Try to scrape the skin with a driver’s license or other smooth object. The stingers contain protein-based venom that can cause an devastating immune system response in the human body.
  • If you are allergic to bee stings or sustain a large number of stings, call 911 immediately.
  • Swelling in the area of a sting is perfectly normal. Swelling in other areas or feeling faint from stings could mean you are having a reaction and should seek medical attention. Put ice on sting sites to help the swelling of the stings.
  • Please remember to leave the bee control to the experts. When people try to remove bees without training or experience the results can be deadly. It happens all the time, and is a mistake waiting to happen.
