Dark mildew stains on my stucco from melted honey

Stains on Stucco
Stains on stucco from melted honey

Melting honey stains down house walls or roof lines is caused by an established beehive or one that has been exterminated, typically by a pest control company, and left in the structure. Some pest control companies have been sued by home owners damages and staining caused from not removing the beehive, perhaps in most cases they are unaware themselves of the problem, it is over looked, or perhaps the technician thinks the bees are yellow jackets. For this reason and other humanitarian reasons many pest control companies do not get rid of bees of perform any bee removal. Pest control companies that do exterminate honeybees, after exterminating honeybees, have the customer sign a waiver to release them from liability of a exhausted beehive in the home or structure and informing them of the need of getting rid of the leftover honey and dead bees. Some people believe this information should be given prior to exterminating the beehive. This way the home owner has time to way there options and solutions for opening the structure removing the eradicated hive of perhaps 100lbs of honey and then repairing and warranting the structure against future bee problems.

If you have melted honey running down the wall of your house, you either have an active bee hive and it's a very hot day, or a bee hive has been exterminated and now the honey is melting. Honey can come down the walls, or into the house or garage, sometimes a year after the actual bee eradication. If you do not get rid of the honey or remove the honey, you will typically end up with long term problems. A bee hive or exhausted bee hive tends to attract returning bees every year, as well as rodents. Here are some basic bee hive removal services. Occasionally houses that are going up for sale on the market have had beehives killed but not removed. Selling or buying a house after exterminating a beehive without removal of the beehive can lead to legal problems and nearly always recurring bee problems for the new owners. These problems can be solved but it take time and money

Some time ago I spoke with a home owner that had purchased and installed a new AC unit in a very large house as the old one performed poorly. Once installed and running however, the AC still performed very poorly. Upon inspecting the attic they realized that rats had eaten holes through the air ducts (rats need AC too). The rats were initially attracted by a beehive that was exterminated and left in the attic. When you get rid of bees (preferably alive) be sure to get rid of the honey as well.
