I’m getting tired of killing bees. Yes, I have recognized many situations where bees are extremely dangerous and something needs to be done quickly. In our own company experience several years ago, we had a worker who came within a minute of death due to anaphylactic shock. It is so difficult to find an economically feasible way to save them. I don’t trust any of the current companies out there that claim to save them. But I do believe it can be done, with extensive training, if you could create a network of bee hive takers. It’s no easy job. But who said work was easy.
Recently we’ve been doing research on the topic of whether to kill or not to kill ferral bees. Surprisingly, we have found controversy even within the beekeeper community. Hearts Consulting Group believes that the best solution is based in the world of conservation. (See our Bugs In My Bed website for further discussion about the field of conservation medicine and pest control). The future of pest control is not simply in killing anything it can get a hold of, but sometimes doing everything possible to conserve what we have through alternations, relocations, desensitizing and other means.
Keep posted as the consulting team works with our pest control company, Hearts Pest Management, to experiment with the latest methods of bee conservation in the pest control market.
