If you want your yard to be a bee-free zone this summer, Titan Pest & Wildlife can help.
Bees are an essential aspect of Earth’s ecosystem. They help produce a third of our food supply, half of the world’s raw materials and fibers, and help prevent soil erosion. However, even though these little insects play a vital role, their stings are painful and even dangerous for people allergic to them.
If you’re looking for effective ways to discourage bees from frequenting your property without harming them, Titan Pest & Wildlife can help. Below are some practical tips for safely maintaining a bee-free zone.
A bee attack can easily be fatal for these categories of people or leave them needing medical attention. Therefore, getting rid of bees is a complicated issue and needs to be handled by a professional pest control company.

Bee-Free Zone Tips
- Seal Potential Entry Points: Inspect your home for any cracks, gaps, or openings that could serve as entry points for bees. Pay particular attention to gaps in windows, doors, vents, and utility openings. Seal these openings with caulk or weatherstripping to create a barrier and prevent bees from accessing the interior of your home.
- Remove Attractive Food Sources: Bees are attracted to sweet and floral scents, which may lead to your home. Minimize their attraction by taking the following steps:
- Secure Trash Bins: Regularly clean your trash bins and ensure they have tight-fitting lids to prevent bees from accessing food scraps.
- Cover Food and Sweet Beverages: When dining outside, keep your food and drinks covered to minimize the enticing aromas that attract bees.
- Rinse Outdoor Eating Areas: Clean up spills or food residues promptly to avoid attracting bees.
- Keep Outdoor Dining Areas Clean: Bees are often attracted to food odors and remnants left in outdoor dining areas. After enjoying a meal outside, clean the area thoroughly to remove any food residues or sugary spills. This will help deter bees from lingering around your patio or deck.
- Avoid Bright Floral Colors: Bees are naturally drawn to bright floral colors, as they associate them with potential food sources. If you want to reduce bee activity around your home, consider choosing less vibrant colors for your outdoor furniture, decor, and clothing when spending time outdoors.
- Plant Bee Discouraging Plants: While bees are essential pollinators, certain plants are less attractive to them. Incorporate these bee-discouraging plants in your landscaping to help divert their attention away from your home. Some examples include marigolds, mint, lemongrass, and citronella.
- Provide Alternative Water Sources: Bees need water for hydration, especially during hot weather. Set up alternative water sources away from high-traffic areas to prevent them from seeking water near your home. Fill shallow dishes with water and place them where bees can access them easily.
- Pest Control Services: If you have a persistent bee problem or encounter a hive on your property, contact Titan Pest & Wildlife. We can safely relocate the bees without causing harm and provide advice on preventing future bee-related issues.
