How To Prevent Bee Hives?

To help prevent bee hives from becoming overpopulated and unhealthy, follow these tips:

4. Keep your property well-maintained. This is especially important if you have lots of trees or other plants that can provide nesting sites for bees. Regularly mowing the lawn and keeping gutters clean will help keep the area free of vegetation that could provide cover for the bees.
5. Pay attention to what’s going on around you, If any changes in the environment could lead to an increase in hive activity
