There are hundreds of species of bees throughout the United States, many of which can be found in the Ruxton area. And while they can be quite beneficial, pollinating numerous crops that humans depend on, such as peaches and apples, they can also deliver a painful sting when threatened. Additionally, for those who are allergic, a bee sting can be quite dangerous.

What Causes Bee Problems?
Many bees, including honey bees and ground bees, are attracted to sweet smells, much like the flowers they pollinate. If you use sweet fragrances outdoors, such as perfumes or candles, or you allow sweet beverages like sodas or sweet foods to go unattended, bees may be attracted to your property. Once there, they can often find a convenient place to nest, such as a wood pile, your home’s attic rafters, or a hole in the exterior leading to a wall cavity. Carpenter bees are especially attracted to wood and can cause significant damage to your home. In dry areas, bees are also drawn to sources of water.
How to Prevent Bee Problems in Maryland
When possible, it is best to avoid causing harm to bees by discouraging them from entering your home in the first place. Several diseases have greatly reduced the bee population, threatening their ability to pollinate our crops consistently. Some things you can do to prevent bee problems and infestations include:
- Avoid using sweet fragrances, especially outdoors.
- Dispose of leftover food and drinks after outdoor activities.
- Clear yard debris that could provide suitable nesting locations.
- Seal any holes in the exterior of your home and outbuildings to prevent nesting.
- Eliminate standing water sources, like pet dishes, toys, or tires.
Most bees will not sting unless threatened, but by discouraging them from loitering around your home, you can greatly reduce the chances of contact.
