Bee Swarms – Pest Control Methods
Bees are venomous, sometimes even deadly, especially when they swarm. Bees swarms can be a serious problem during summer. Often honey bees swarm to establish a new hive inside a wall cavity of a residential or commercial building.
A swarm of bees can be extremely aggressive and may attack a person in such large numbers as to cause death. The venom of bees is highly toxic and may cause hideous swelling of the skin, particularly of children and people with a fair complexion. Some people naturally have low resistance to the venom of bees and deaths are reported to occur in Victoria every year as a result.
DO NOT attempt to eradicate a group of swarming bees by yourself, unless you have the complete range of protective equipment and professional knowledge of pest control for bee swarms.

Consumer Protection Advice – Pesticide Safety Issues
Be wary of very cheap prices for bee control – check which pesticides are to be used. The far cheaper, less effective, solvent based pesticides can be harmful in premises where occupants may suffer from asthmatic or other bronchial ailments.
Be careful when selecting a pest controller, make sure they have the experience and the knowledge of bees and bee control pesticides.
