Does Killing Bees and Removing Bee Nests Stop Pollination?

Though bees are the primary pollinators in Ontario there is no reason to be concerned that killing bees or eliminating a bee nest from your yard will have a negative impact on the environment.

bee control and wasp removal - does it affect pollination

If all bee nests in Ontario were eliminated, it may have negative consequences on local ecosystems, however that would never happen. There are simply too many bee nests for them all to be eliminated. For this reason, Magical strongly advocates controlling bee and wasp nests that pop up in dangerous areas that may pose a threat to humans. There are plenty of safe places for bees and wasps to nest where they are not in the direct vicinity of humans. Since bees and wasps are mostly non-aggressive when they are not threatened, bee and wasp nests away from humans do not pose a threat.

  1. “… however that would never happen. There are simply too many bee nests for them all to be eliminated.”

    Hm. Sounds familiar. Didn’t they also say that about the passenger pidgeon? And the pine trees in Algonquin Park? And about coal mines at the start of the Industrial Revolution? If history serves, nothing good ever comes out of this way of thinking.

    • Thank you for sharing your opinion.

      Of course we want to be responsible about ensuring that pollinators are able to coexist with humans. We don’t advocate removing pollinators in wooded areas or anywhere where they do not pose a threat to humans. However, bee or wasp nests in homes and buildings occupied by people is rarely a good thing for humans or the insects. There is a balance to be found.
