Protecting our clients and staff from Covid-19 while removing bee nest/s explained!
Dear valued customer,
We wanted to reach out and share with you what we are doing in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in order to ensure continued uninterrupted service continuity.
I know that many Canadians, the last few days have heightened feelings of concern and uncertainty around COVID-19. Right now, our company is focused on how we can continue to serve our communities in this time of need, while also being part of the solution. We are announcing today some changes that will take effect immediately. We are doing the best that we can to support you and your local community while also getting ride of unwanted bees and bee nests. While at the same time, doing our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. With all of us working together, and supporting one another, we will get through this period of uncertainty. Our two priorities right now are providing continued and uninterrupted service to our customers and maintaining the safety and well-being of our employees. We have the appropriate respirators and facial equipment to keep everyone safe. Please read more details below as to how we can service you better. As of March 21, 2022 our company will no longer wear masks unless our clients insist on wearing them. In fact, studies show that wearing masks are more dangerous and a risk to our health and since we at times need to climb ladders and get into crawl spaces it is not safe to limit the amount of oxygen one gets and therefore poses an imminent risk to falling or passing out. Bee work is very dangerous at times and we require maximum ability to remove the bees, thank you.
Our Commitment To Our Clients
Firstly, none of our workers will be permitted to go to any client’s facilities, homes, buildings or come in contact with others if they have signs of the virus. In fact they exhibit any symptoms of the virus they will be isolated as instructed by professionals and existing medical protocols. Secondly, HoneyHoney has acquired special respirator mask and safety glasses which do not allow floating liquid mist from coughs or fluids to exit or enter the filter or eyes while latex gloves and bees gloves will be worn. In addition alcohol and propane burners are used to sterilize our bee tools. The air borne particles/cell of the virus are 400-500 nm in dia. And typically fall to the ground fairly quickly. If liquid particles fall on the skin they will last about 10-15 minutes. Masks do not have the capability to filter out the virus and are pretty useless unless combined with special nano particle filters.
In order to reduce possible exposure to the virus please continue to use the existing methods of communication for sending information, pictures via cell phone or via internet to our office. Once the type of bee is identified a plan can be made to protect anyone including our clients and staff to avoid spreading the virus while removing the bees nest.
Unfortunately, asymptomatic people may carry the virus without showing any signs of being affected-these people are the worst for spreading this sort of virus to others.
If our staff needs to work inside a home for extended periods we will take and implement special precautions to ensure nothing gets transmitted in either direction. And the plan of action will be agreeable by both parties to ensure everyone is safe and satisfied.
Working outside does not pose as great of a problem therefore, the precautions will not be as stringent although sometimes it is necessary to go inside and again all necessary precautions will be taken. We have implemented this procedure to be able to continue servicing our customers. With all of us working together, and supporting one another, we will get through this.
If you have a bee problem and want them to be removed humanely please contact us at 289-799-9417 or send us an email at admin@ honeyhoney.ca
Thank you for your interest in our services
What is Corona-virus (covid-19) according to World Health Organization WHO)
“Corona-viruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several corona-viruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered corona-virus causes corona-virus disease COVID-19.”
What is Covid-19?
“COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered corona-virus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.”
What are the symptoms?
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
2020 Season of Bees is Approaching Fast!
The Spring of 2020 will introduce new colonies of bees nests and therefore, slight variations in the bee poisons depending where you are located. And so this season like many others the bees angered will sting people dive-bombing again and again if they are provoked. The buzzing, the swatting, people’s odours, anger and fast movements, black coloured clothes may trigger defensive responses in these insects and pose immediate health risks. Our children, families and friends will be exposed to this annoying insect and sometimes nobody knows where the beehive is located and inadvertently trigger a bee response.
The 2020 bee season starts in May and usually ends in October in Ontario. Once the bees once have located pollen and nectar, or in the case of wasps located insects will be in full swing and stem production of new emerging bees. Wasps and hornets typically eat other bees, caterpillars a meat based diet. While the honeybee will eat plant based foods such as nectar and pollen. Everyone, needs to take extra measures not to provoke these insects at all costs because the alternative could pose health risks.
