All About Bees and Avoiding Their Stings!

No one likes a bee sting. Especially when it comes to a task many find tedious, mowing. Cutting the yard in Clarksville, Tennessee or mowing the grass in Johns Creek, Georgia, all homeowners face the possibility of being stung.  But the fact is we need to embrace bees. Bees play a crucial role on Earth. Many believe if bees go extinct humanity will be next. Bees play a vital role for plants to reproduce. Flowers are bright and fragrant in order to attract bees. Once the bee lands on the plant, pollen attaches to their body then the bee will transport that pollen from the male part of the plant to the female part. This small act is responsible for 70% of the production of: fruits, vegetables and nuts we consume everyday! Not only do Bees pollinate our food bees pollinate cotton fields as well. Without bees we can forget about having clothes, mattresses, towels and high end paper products. So its safe to say even though their stings are unpleasant we need to learn of ways not to harm them and for them not to harm us.

Here are a list of things you could do at home to prevent bee stings!

One way to prevent stings all together is to "Bee-proof" your home. An easy way to do this is to fill any potential areas bees may gravitate to. Some places would include: tree cavities, holes in outside walls, rain spouts or meter boxes. Its easy to put screens over these areas so bees will have no access into them.

Another way to prevent bees is to hire a professional lawn service or pest control company to come out to your home. Be sure the company is willing to relocate the hive rather than destroy it.

It is best to try to avoid the contact of a bee altogether because machinery can disturb a beehive. Once the vibration is heard by a beehive the immediate response is to attack the object that is making the noise. So it is always best to check the area for bees and hives before starting up: mowers, weed choppers or chainsaws. It is also recommended that you never leave anything that may attract a bee outside. Somethings that would do this are white, yellow, blue or purple flowers. So before starting a flower bed be aware these colors have an affect on bees. Fruits that attract bees are: blackberries, cantaloupes, strawberries and watermelons.

All in all the best time to mow would be around 5 p.m. if it did not rain that day. Wet grass can lead to blades being grouped together and a very messy lawn. Not only will you save your mower blades you won't have much trouble from the bees either. Bees are mid-morning risers. Meaning they will be out and about during the day. Early morning could be best if you don't have time to wait for dry grass. But either way before 9a.m. or after 5p.m. is the best time to mow your lawn to avoid bee stings.
