  • Use of small bee entrance holes helps in controlling and avoiding beetle invasions.
  • Regular hive inspection and physical removal of some pests such as beetles
  • Clearing of bush beneath and around the hives to control and prevent invasion of safari ants, sugar ants and termites attack.
  • Use of wasp traps, identifying and destroying their nests.
  • Avoid hanging hives in swampy areas. Constantly inspect hives to control frogs and toads.
  • Maintaining the apiary clean helps control snakes and lizards.
  • Fence the apiaries with thorns or chicken wire mesh. A strongly built bee house helps control honey badgers and monkeys.
  • Grease hanging wires and hanging poles at the ground level. This helps prevent ant attacks.
