Located near Payson, Arizona it is a beauty of natural rock formation and to be honest almost killed me about 8 years ago. How you ask, the trek down wasn’t so bad but the trek up was harder than I thought. Thought I was going to die, bring water. It is the largest travertine bridge in the world and is a really cool day trip. I did an blog way back in March 2012 “Even the Bees get respect in Arizona“.
Here are a few tips on honeybee swarms:
- Generally speaking a swarm such as the one above will move on in time, usually 24 hours.
- When a swarm happens the bees take in honey and are therefore less aggressive, don’t provoke them.
- A swarm will send scouts out to look for an new home.
- If they land on a tree, bush or fence give them some time. If they land on your house it is better to take care of it ASAP.
- By just looking at them it is impossible to determine if they are Africanized.
- Once they establish a hive or colony they will defend with their lives.
Part of doing pest control involves me walking around your property and doing a cursory check of the things I see.
So when I see a condition that could cause further issues I want to bring it to the attention of the homeowner. The issue above could cause further problems down the road by leaking into the home or by causing the roof to really leak especially with the monsoons we are experiencing these days. So the question is really an easy one – “Why keep a company that doesn’t care about you or your family?” Call ProBest Pest Management we will inform you on conditions that can cause potential issues – call us today at 480-831-9328 or 623-414-0176 and thanks.
Pest Management Professional Magazine recently did an article in their “After Hours” section called “Connecting genealogy and pest management” by Dan Jacobs and I wanted to say thanks. I also want to share with you one of my hobbies, which I enjoy when I have time that is. I also love to hike but not in the heat or in the summer here in Arizona. Sometimes it is just great to get out into a wooden area and see what is happening. This hobby is related to my Scouting career. A few of my FaceBook friends enjoy camping, hiking and vacationing and I really enjoy their posting of their activities. The 2 pictures below are 2 of my (25) Eagle Scouts when I was in Florida. Scouting builds character!
Within the last few months:
Ann & Joe went camping in Michigan
Jason hiked part of the AT Trail (Appalachian Trail) which he does almost every summer with friends. I have hiked sections of the AT a few times with my Scouts. Jason is the one in the back.
Jason M. participated as a Counselor at a summer camp
Frank & Shelly went to the beach
and this one was beyond belief – Chris ran 100 miles through the Sahara Desert – Marathon Des Sables.
