Arizona Homeowners: Bee-ware of Bee Hives!

Beehive on a Phoenix, AZ home

I found this beehive while doing a home inspection in Phoenix yesterday.  If you ever see a beehive like this, stay away from it and call a professional to have it removed.

What, you mean I shouldn't just knock that thing down with a stick? ;)

There are lots of reports about diminishing bee hives. I'd rather we try to relocate these things than kill them.

I saw a show on the Discovery channel about how there are no bees in certain parts of China because they've all been killed by pesticides sprayed by the government. The farmers have to pollinate the pear trees themselves. They showed how people perform the entire tedious process by hand... I bet they'd really love to have this bee hive!

I think that bees and wasps are a real threat. Not saying that they can kill a healthy adult, but a kid or an alergic is endagered. Nevertheless a hive should be relocated if possible. Bees are an important part of our enviroment. As a Toronto real estate agent luckily I don't have to deal with these kinds of problems. Hope you don't have to fight bees again.

Ooh, that hive looks malicious! I never really thought about the whole environmental issue of killing off the bees and having to deal with the consequences before. It really does make sense. So I figure calling a specialist to carry the hive off is just buying up some karma points!

Yikes. I worked in an information booth with a wasp nest. In the morning the yellow jackets would sleepily filter into my work area where I would scoop them back outside with a cup. I hope they don't have kids around.

That is the largest bee hive I have ever seen. I would let someone come get it with out a problem. I would not want to have to worry about that for anything. In Georgia we grow them a lot smaller than that.

That one is on the outside. If there is a hole in the wall, the whole nest can be inside the wall and cause a lot of damage.

I enjoy following your blog! The Bend Oregon real estate market continues to be slow. It looks like a good time to buy in your market.

I recommend you to please keep away from it, and call professional for help, and do it in your first work.
