Bees Buzzing Around Your Home? You May Need New Siding March 27, 2017

Bees Buzzing Around Your Home? You May Need New Siding, Lincoln, Nebraska

With spring coming, the buds are blossoming, songbirds are singing—and insects are coming out of hiding. If you find an increase of bees infiltrating your home when the weather warms up, old siding on your house could be to blame. 

Most bees set up camp under a house’s trim, soffit or siding that has deteriorated. This leaves room for bees to make their way in and start laying eggs. Obviously, having these stinging insects too close to home can be problematic, especially if you have friends or family members with allergies. Additionally, insect eggs can prove tempting to woodpeckers—and these can wreak even more havoc on your home!

sidingIf you do find yourself facing a bee infestation, hire a professional to move the hive as soon as possible. Once that’s done, you’ll still have to nix that attractive nesting spot that brought the bees to you in the first place. A siding contractor can close gaps between your home’s fascia and siding. You may also want to consider covering exposed wood with aluminum cladding.

Wood siding, in particular, invites bees and other wood-boring insects to set up camp. If you have wooden siding, consider switching to vinyl or steel siding, or a similarly less insect-friendly material. The longer you wait, the more time you give bugs to make themselves at home in your home—and once they burrow beneath the trim and siding of your house, they can bring even more problems.
