When living in Santa Barbara, getting outside is a requirement. Whether you decide to go hiking, take a surfing lesson, or relax on the beach, your pleasure is Santa Barbara's delight. While enjoying a full range of outdoor activities, you are encouraged to bask in the breathtaking views that extend from the mountains to the beach. Other residents of Santa Barbara that savor the wide-open spaces are the local bees, and pest control in Santa Barbara becomes necessary when they decide to move indoors.

The Role Bees Play In Our Ecosystem

Pollination is the key to plant growth; this process is vital to the ecosystem. In pollination, tiny pollen grains get transferred from one flower or plant to another. The pollen fertilizes the plants and trees, makes seeds, and produces fruit. If we didn't have the pollination process, plants could not reproduce and grow. That is where bees come into play. When it comes to bee pollination, bees are number one! There are over 4,000 different species of bees in the United States that keep the pollination process moving. When they visit plants, they collect pollen and nectar on their bodies and transfer what they've picked up to other plants. Bees visit more than 2,000 flowers daily, allowing plants and trees to support both people and animals; without bees, the ecosystem would suffer greatly.

We Love The Bees, Just Not In Our Homes

You've got to love the bees. They do much to keep this planet producing the sustenance people, and animals need. However, people do not love them in their homes, making bee control vital. Most of the time, when people notice bees inside, it is either because they hear them or see them. If they are not taken care of quickly, they can build nests within your home, and that can bring some severe problems. Another issue with bees in your home is their ability to sting. A sting is simply uncomfortable for most, but others in your home may have a very different reaction. With so many people suffering from severe bee allergies, homeowners must immediately remove bees from inside their homes.

The Places In Our Homes Bees Like To Build Nests

Increased bee activity around homes is an indication that bees may have found an excellent place to establish a beehive. Bees only need a 1/4 inch gap or hole to allow them access to your home. If homeowners start seeing a lot of back and forth activity around their home, it is time to start paying attention. Homeowners would be wise to listen and look for nests around their homes.

Ten places bees like to build nests include the following:

  • Inside walls
  • Behind siding and brick
  • Within concrete blocks
  • Conduits for wiring
  • Eaves
  • Soffits
  • Roofs
  • Attics
  • Chimney
  • Vents
