    Default bee hive on rental property

    Yesterday I noticed some bees around the house and seems they are building a bee hive just on side of the house. My neighbour said to us to call the real estate agent to deal with it. I'm wondering is it theirs and the landlord's job to deal with such issues?

    Could you call a local bee keeper? One might be happy to move and keep them for you. I'd hate to see them killed.

    Bees are super important and under threat.

    Yes call a beekeeper and they'll come and collect them.

    I'm fairly sure that any 'pest' issues are up to the tenant to deal with. Just like how you have to have a pest control done at the end of your tenancy, I think it's up to you to deal with any pests during the lease.

    I agree with PPs, see if you can get a beekeeper to remove them as without bees the world is doomed! Not to sound dramatic! If you can't find one maybe the local Council or RSPCA could put you in touch with one?

    A friend of mine recently had a hive removed from her home. It cost $600. The bees were not destroyed, they were moved to a different location.

    I'm not sure whose responsibility it is, but wanted to give you an idea of what the cost can be.

    call your RE. I think that it is the landlords responsibility, but I am not sure.

    It's the landlords responsibility. We have paid twice for wasps to be removed for our tenant at about $120 each time.

    Maybe keep an eye on them for a couple of days, they may just b swarming and move on. If they build on the outside of the house it's unlikely to be a permanent hive.

    I would like this better than paying $600, problem is DP is extremely allergic to bees and DD hasn't been able to play outside. Also they keep creeping in house through windows. Does anyone know why they die inside. I found 6 dead in the bathroom so far and 2 in the laundry.
