Winston-Salem, NC, is a prime location for bees during swarm season. Because of the mild weather in the North Carolina, bee swarms are common when spring begins.
When bees “swarm,” a hive of bees will produce a new queen, and then the queen will leave with half of the bees in the hive to go form a new colony. This is how bees reproduce and grow, and this is how bees find new homes. When bees are looking, they seek out protected dry spaces such as hollowed out trees. Sometimes, they build in houses, chimneys, attics, and grills. If you see a swarm in your yard, call Bee Swarm Removal Winston-Salem to come take care of it! Not only will it keep the bees from building in your property, but it will also help the bees as they are relocated to an apiary.
If a swarm has already started building a colony in the siding of your home, still give us a call.
When a beehive is built in the siding of your house or in the eaves of your home, it creates a multi-layered problem that is not exactly easy to correct. Not only do you have to get rid of the bees, but you have to also find a way to get rid of the wax and honey that’s left behind. This is not a job for a pest control guy, or even a job for someone who is just a beekeeper. The best person to call in this situation is a certified bee removal specialist; someone who is trained in both bee behavior and carpentry work.
Calling a bee removal specialist who is skilled in carpentry is important because the wax and honey has to come out. If left alone, wax and honey can cause serious damage to properties. It can melt and ruin drywall and other parts of a home’s structure. Additionally, it can attract rodents, cockroaches, ants, and even more bees.

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.

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.
