For some Tulsa, Ok. homeowners it can be quite scary to find a swarm of bees in or around their Tulsa area home. Some might even discover honey running down the mantle or walls of their Tulsa home for sale. Whatever the situation it is important to remember some basic information when handling a swarm of bees in your Tulsa home.
First, don’t spray a swarm of bees. The best way to handle the situation is to call a local Tulsa beekeeper to come and take a look. They can let you know what to do and how best to do it. If it is indeed a swarm of honeybees, they can find someone to come and take away the bees and the hive so that there will be no further problems.
Second, don’t decide to take on beekeeping without educating yourself first. Seeing a swarm of bees might make you think that you can just create your own hive and become a Tulsa beekeeper yourself. More beekeepers are needed, however, before you decide to take it on as a hobby, educate yourself. Make sure you are educated before you decide to take on beekeeping as a hobby. Remember, if bees scare you then beekeeping is probably not a good choice. Also, if you are not able to perform labor intensive work in the heat while lifting heavy objects then it is best to leave beekeeping to someone else.
