Bee Dangers and Premises Liability

Many property owners pay little to no attention to the presence of a bee hive or wasp nest on their property. However, a bee sting can actually pose a huge threat to visitors of a property. If a person with a bee sting allergy enters a property and gets stung, he or she could suffer a severe allergic reaction that could be fatal. If the property owner knew about the presence of a bee hive but did nothing to warn the visitor, he or she could be held liable for the victim’s medical bills and other injury-related losses.

If you have suffered a bee sting injury on another person’s property and you were not warned about the danger, you could be eligible for compensation.

Property Owner Responsibilities

If you are aware of a danger on your property, you have a responsibility to either remove the danger, or inform all visitors that the hazard exists. As such, if you are aware that there is a bee hive or a wasp nest on your property, you should:

  • Remove the hive, if it is safe for you to do so
  • Make sure to warn visitors of the presence of the hive, both verbally and with posted signs
  • If you keep bees, you should choose an area that passersby will not be exposed to, and you should post notices that you are keeping bees

Bee sting injuries can be fatal to some people, so it is important that property owners do everything possible to keep others safe.
