Bees are an important part of keeping nature healthy and thriving, and it’s important to do all we can to help them so that our plants and flowers can continue to grow and thrive. But sometimes bees end up where they’re not supposed to, and might end up building their hive or nest somewhere that’s not safe for them. They might have built a hive on your porch, in your garage, or even on the bed of your truck! Any of these areas could be an unsafe area for bees to build their colony, and might be unsafe for you and your family, especially if anyone in your household is allergic to bees.
Because bees are one of the most important parts of our ecosystem, it’s important that you use safe methods that will get the bees and the bee hive off of your property naturally. Keep reading for the best natural ways to get bees off of your property safely.
Burn Citronella Candles
Citronella candles are a tried and true natural insect repellent, keeping away bugs and pesky mosquitoes while you’re enjoying the warm weather in your backyard or on a camping trip. And thankfully, bees hate citronella just as much as mosquitos, meaning that once they smell it, they’ll vacate the premises quickly, without any harm done!
Sprinkle Garlic Powder
While it may sound strange, garlic powder is another natural insect repellent. Be careful with where you sprinkle the powder, however, as the goal is to relocate the bees, and too much direct contact with the powder could prove deadly for the bees.
Use Vinegar Spray
By using a spray bottle with equal parts water and vinegar, you can start spraying around a swarm of bees to deter them and get them to move to another area. Be sure to wear protective gear, and keep in mind that this method could prove deadly to the bees, so try out some less lethal options first before reaching for the vinegar so you can keep the bees safe.
