Hundreds of residential and commercial property owners in Waverley deal with a bee infestation each year. Many of those affected understand the dangers of neglecting a beehive and have it removed as soon as possible.
However, there are always a handful of hopeful people who believe the problem will go away on its own. The unfortunate truth is that it doesn't. In fact, it only gets worse over time.

The results of which can be severe pain, swelling, redness, and itchiness. However, that's not the worst that can happen. If you or another person or animal is allergic to bees and gets stung, the sting can be fatal.
If you happen to run a business, on top of the above, an active beehive can cause frustration in your customers. And if the beehive isn't removed soon, it can push away your customers and cause your business to lose a lot of revenue.
