Beehive removal isnít a good project for a do-it-yourselfer. A single hive can hold from 10,000 to 50,000 bees and they can be incredibly aggressive. Bee removal can be dangerous and difficult.
A few bees in the house or buzzing around a chimney, vent, or eave is usually sign of a beehive but it isnít just the bees you have to be concerned with. An average beehive can have 25 to 100 lbs of honey and honeycomb.
We specialize in safe, eco-friendly bee removal from walls, roofs, attics, chimneys and other odd places where bees nest. At times, we also provide removal on trees, bushes, and other exterior locations.
We believe itís important to protect our clients from bees while also protecting the bees by removing the hive and all of the bees and safely transferring them to another location.
Bees pollinate an almost endless number of crops, flowers and plants in addition to providing us with honey. Unfortunately, bee populations in many parts of the United States have declined by 50 percent or more according to studies. No specific cause has been identified.
If you have a bee problem, hiring a bee exterminator wonít solve your problem. Even if they are able to eliminate all of the bees, the honeycomb and honey are likely still in the space formerly occupied by the hive.
Removal of the honeycomb and honey is the key to solving any bee problem. Leaving them behind can result in structural damage to your property caused by melting honey and the honeycomb is likely to attract bugs or rodents and could even attract more bees in the future.
If a bee colony has just appeared and is congregating outdoors, itís called a swarm. In the lower half of the United States an average swarm may be about 5,000 bees, is about the size of a football and often is beard shaped. For the remainder of the United States and Canada, the swarms are generally larger.
Bee swarms are best left alone. Thatís because, in many cases, the bees typically rest on trees, bushes or external structures for a few days and then move on.
However, if a few days have passed and the bees are still there, your best option is to hire a professional beehive removal expert. The sooner you address the problem the better, because those bees will be creating more and more honeycomb as time passes and that eventually will have to be removed.
Our services cover every aspect of beehive removal, including:
Beehive removal and relocation: Beehive removal from structural voids such as roofs, walls, attics, chimneys, and buildings in addition to beehives on shrubbery. Beehives are relocated in most cases to local apiaries instead of exterminating them with pesticides.
Bee proofing to prevent recurring bee problems: After removing a beehive, it may be necessary to keep the hive from returning to the structure. This is done through bee proofing, which is a method of exclusion involving materials and techniques that are specialized for the prevention of structural bee infestations. Bee proofing works best as a preventive method. Sealing a beehive in a structure creates a myriad of additional problems. When bees are removed warrantees can be very valuable because if the bees are not removed properly it is common for them to return to the same location or a location nearby.
Beehive removal and repair: The most effective way to keep bees from returning is to carefully remove the beehive and all the honeycomb; clean, treat and suppress the hive scent of that hive, then repair the area that was used to access the hive.
