You can read more about Bee Removal Specialist in Madison below. But first, let’s look at some of those extremely dangerous and foolish ways NOT to remove bees (as unfortunately attempted by ill-intentioned Madison residents every summer!)
Bee Removal Madison – 5 Wrong Ways
Wrong Way #1 – Use bug spray on the beehive.
Under no circumstances should you use an ordinary can of bug spray on a bee hive (even if the label says it’s for bees and wasps). Do you have a bee or two inside your house? Sure, use the bug spray if you must. But spraying it at an entire hive is just plain foolish. It won’t kill all the bees inside. And the majority of bees that survive will come after you.
Wrong Way #2 – Hose down the hive with water.
For your own sake, please put the garden hose away. It is not an effective tool for bee removal Madison. It will only result in disaster. Even if you manage to soak the hive with water before being stung mercilessly, there’s a good chance that many bees will survive and continue to rebuild the hive.
Wrong Way #3 – Use a bug “bomb.”
Such “bombs” are sometimes used by exterminators to get rid of severe insect infestations inside a home, such as roaches. But they are not intended for bees, whether they’re located inside or outside your home. Even if you did kill a large portion of the colony, you’d be stuck with a huge mess of dead bees – possibly thousands all over your lawn or inside your home. This is not the way to do it!
Wrong Way #4 – Throw rocks at the hive.
Throwing rocks (or any other objects) at the hive will only make the bees angry. Chances are very slim that you’ll do enough damage to make the bees leave.
Wrong Way #5 – Knock the hive down with a long pole.
Nope, not a 10-foot pole, not 15 feet, not any pole at all. Just like the methods above, this silly attempt will only get you stung – and it won’t do anything to solve the problem.

Bee Removal FAQ
1. Do you have experience removing bees from a wall?
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.
4.How long have you been a beekeeper?
Because there are many species of bees, a beekeeper must have extensive knowledge of the different techniques to safely and effectively remove the bees.
5. How long have you been in business?
Make sure they have a valid business license and have many years of experience in the bee removal field.
6. Do you have references?
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. Itâ€™s not unusual for novice companies to ask friends and family to create favorable reviews.
7. Do you guarantee your work?
Read the warranty or guarantee agreement carefully. A good bee removal company will warranty a removal requiring a repair for at least a year.
8. Do you have insurance?
Some companies operate with little or no insurance. Companies should have both liability and workmanâ€™s compensation insurance. This is a good precaution against accidents caused by bee smokers causing fires or beekeepers falling from roofs or trees.
