Beehives are seen in many residential and commercial buildings in India. Out of fear of bee stings and being oblivious of the ecosystem services provided by Bees, people have adopted crude practices of removing their hives by using fire torches, water cannons, and pesticides. Approximately 2 billion bees are estimated to be killed pan India every year. Better beehive management is necessary to avoid a pollinator crisis and subsequent threat to food security in India (Ref. https://www.fao.org/3/i9527en/i9527en.pdf ).
Several new techniques of Beehive removal have been tried out, including drones for spraying, thermal fogging, etc. However, the methods used were either not effective, or they are expensive, or there is a repeat occurrence of beehives at the same spot after a few days. Solutions are invited to repel Bees or remove Beehives without killing the Bees.
