Preventing bees from establishing a colony in or around your home or business requires a proactive approach. Here are some practical tips for homeowners and business owners to deter bees and avoid the need for removal:

  1. Seal Entry Points: Inspect your property for any cracks, holes, or openings in the exterior walls, foundation, and roof. Seal these entry points with caulking, steel wool, or appropriate materials to prevent bees from entering and nesting.

  2. Repair Screens and Vents: Ensure that all window screens, vent covers, and chimney caps are intact and securely fitted. Repair or replace any damaged screens or covers to keep bees out.

  3. Maintain Landscaping: Regularly trim trees, shrubs, and flowering plants around your property. Overgrown vegetation can attract bees looking for nesting sites.

  4. Remove Potential Nesting Sites: Clear away debris, such as piles of wood, unused appliances, or old tires, where bees could potentially nest.

  5. Limit Water Sources: Bees need water, so eliminate standing water around your property, including in bird baths, clogged gutters, and plant saucers, to make the area less attractive to them.

  6. Use Decoy Nests: Hanging decoy wasp nests around your property can deter bees and wasps from establishing new colonies nearby, as they are territorial and usually avoid areas where other colonies exist.

  7. Avoid Bright Colors and Floral Patterns: Since bees are attracted to bright colors and floral patterns, consider this when choosing outdoor furniture and decorations.

  8. Manage Waste Properly: Keep garbage cans and recycling bins tightly sealed. Exposed waste can attract bees and other pests.

  9. Opt for Non-Attractive Plants: While it's not feasible or desirable to remove all flowers from your property, you can choose plants that are less attractive to bees for areas close to your home or business entrance.

  10. Professional Inspection: If you are in a high-risk area for bee infestation, consider having 911 Houston Bee Removal expert inspect your property annually. They can identify potential risks and advise on preventive measures.
