Bee and Wasp Removal Experts Reveal 5 Common Ways Bees Get into Homes

animal-glass-insect-bottle-561Bees, especially those looking for a new nest, are incredibly persistent. They can enter a building or property even through the tiniest cracks. Successful bee and wasp removal depend on tracking their initial entryway, then sealing up all possible entrances to prevent future infestations.

5 Common Ways Bees Enter a Home

Upon seeing a bee buzzing inside their house, most people’s first move is to close all windows and doors to prevent more from coming in.  Few understand that there’s a chance that there’s more flying about indoors.

Bees can enter a structure through the unlikeliest places. All they need are holes as small as a quarter of an inch. Below are some surprising, yet common ways, that bees can get inside your home:

  1. Stove, Dryer, and Bathroom Vents

Vents are known among bee and wasp exterminators as a hub for bee activity. The buzzing may not be noticeable at first. A dozen or more bees flying in and out of the vents, especially those in the second story of a house, is the most obvious giveaway. To check your vents for bees, grab binoculars and observe from a distance.

  1. Attic Vent Holes

Attics usually have some holes in screens. They allow the heat to escape and help regulate the home’s temperature. Unfortunately, they can also be a vulnerable spot for bee infestations. Similar to stove, dryer, and bathroom vents, check for bee presence from a distance to avoid being stung.

  1. Chimney

Chimney exteriors are another common entryway for bees. Depending on the state of your chimney, it may even be the ideal location for a hive. Check under the eaves, the top of the roof, and along the roofline for these unwanted insects. Call for expert bee and wasp removal ASAP once you notice signs of a colony.

  1. Walls

Bees can use any crack, hole, or gap in the wall to make their way into your home. Keep an eye out for weak points in the following:

• Gaps under or in the roof tile

• Gaps under the eaves

• Areas where electrical wires and cables enter the wall

• Worn parts of the exterior

  1. Gutters and Pipes

Look for holes in areas where gutters and pipes enter your home. These spots are incredibly susceptible to persistent bees. If you see bees repeatedly flying in and out of the space, then you may have a budding infestation on your hands.
