Bee Removal and Relocation Vs. Extermination
You may be asking, why should I relocate my bees when a can of Raid is ten bucks? Bee Extermination is never recommended, especially if bees have already made a nest out of your home. As Bee Removal Specialists, we encounter dozens of calls every year involving honey leakage throughout a customer’s home. This honey leakage is from the leftover honeycomb that was not removed, most likely from bee extermination. Sure, spraying honeybees will kill them, but the hive, if not adequately removed, will begin to rot, honey included.
Often homeowners attempt or hire pest control companies to kill their bee problem. Unfortunately, killing bees does nothing about their honey or hive. Once you have a beehive, we always recommend opening up the structure of your home and removing the bees completely. If the honeycomb is left in your home, other bees will be attracted to it. Bees release pheromones, and it tells other bees, that there was once a colony there.

Removing honeybees from a wall requires carpentry experience. A novice beekeeper can cause more damage than good if they are not experts in carpentry.
2. What is the process of removing bees from a wall?
An experienced beekeeper will identify the location of the bees with an infrared camera, use a smoker to calm the bees, use a bee vacuum and other professional tools to remove the honeybees safely, extract the hive, clean the affected area, apply pesticide to deter honeybees from returning to the empty hive, fill the open area with insulation and replace the wall with the original material whenever possible.
3. Do you have pictures of honeybee removals from walls?
Trustworthy honeybee removal companies will have plenty of pictures. Choose a company that has more than just a few examples.

Make sure they have a valid business license and have many years of experience in the bee removal field.

A reputable bee removal company will have good ratings online on platforms such as Google. Be wary of businesses that have too few good reviews. It’s not unusual for novice companies to ask friends and family to create favorable reviews.

Read the warranty or guarantee agreement carefully. A good bee removal company will warranty a removal requiring a repair for at least a year.
