Bee Hive - who is responsible Tenant or Landlord by Rashmi on May 8, 2018 @10:06

                              
Our tenant has informed that there is a Beehive at the home. This is the first time I have to handle this. Who is suppose to handle this situation - to remove the bee hive? Is it Tenant's responsibility or mine as a landlord? Also how do I handle this? Do I engage an Exterminator company or are there specific bee hive removal services.

Thank you for your help!

You as the Landlord, are responsible for all things having to do with Mother Nature. That means getting rid of ANY KIND of pest-----ants, bees, birds, bats, snakes, squirrels, mice, raccoons, etc. Call an extermination company to get rid of them. That is, unless, you are willing to get stung multiple times yourself, or possibly your Ts get stung, because you didn't handle it right, and they decide to sue you.

G is an idiot. Your lease says that the tenant is responsible for pest control. Tell your tenant to go after dark and knock it down with a baseball bat. Just make sure he has a garden hose at the ready so he can drown the hive after it falls.

Unless your tenant put out a For Rent sign and invited the bees to move in, you are responsible for getting rid of it. Nothing they did or didn't do caused the problem.

Call a bee keeper to remove. That is if you like eating fruits and vegetables. We need bee's to pollinate these type of plants to grow.

You should absolutely save the bees literally they are endangered.

Wasps can be caught with a $5.00 trap. Also if it is a wasps and you live in a cold climate you can destroy their colony if you catch the queen. They all die but the queen during winter. She probably layed eggs before you catch her but the next one is half the size. It might take a season but these you can get rid of easy and cheap. Proactive traps next year for these before spring.

You need to find the source if it is hornets probably trash, dead wood, hay, piles of leaves and dumped lawn clippings ect. will bring them to your home.

You are responsible. Best is to contact a BEEKEEPER. Bees are ENDANGERED and necessary to pollinate the foods we eat. Without Bees, there would be no fruits or veges! BE happy you can get a bee keeper who will take the hive, honey and all the bees to his place. Bees are EXTREMELY VALUABLE! Do not kill
or harm them in any way. You will be doing everybody a very good thing.
