When you first notice a larger than usual number of bees in or about your residential or commercial property, your first priority will naturally be to see that you and others are safe. Do not approach or interfere in any way with these bees. Your next priority should be to get information from a reliable source. At Live Bee Removal Anchorage, educating our community about bees and wasps is our goal. We will answer all your questions and help you determine how you should go about handling any bee or wasp issue you have. This information is given freely by our experienced team of beekeepers and bee removal experts at any hour or the day.
Bees will present themselves in several different ways. A few bees or wasps flying about your property, foraging for food or water should NOT be cause for any alarm. These insects are doing their job, pollinating our plant life and ensuring our way of life. If you see a greater number than usual or have allergies to bee or wasp venom then professional care should be taken to minimize the stinging risks these guests represent. We have bee and wasp control services which can create a less welcoming environment to bees.
A swarm of bees is rarely seen by most of us. Bees traveling in a swarm formation are simply looking for new location to establish a hive. You will know you have a swarm present when you see a large group of bees on an outside structure. These bees will be piled up into one large mass of bees. This can be quite a startling sight as there will be thousands of bees present. A swarm of bees will rarely pose a threat to their surroundings as long as they can be avoided. They may stay a few hours or up to a few days while scout bees travel to and from. If you happen to witness a swarm of bees you can call on us for gentle, live removal to a more appropriate location. As bee swarms are searching for a new hive location you will want to keep close watch on your trees and structures. You definitely do not want them moving in!
A colony or hive of bees is most often reported after someone notices a “line” of bees going in or out of an enclosed space through a tiny gap or hole. People will often report to us that it’s “only a few”, believing the problem to be a relatively small one. Unfortunately this is never the case. A colony of bees is made up of thousands, sometimes upwards of 50,000 members strong. Trying to remove or exterminate them through this tiny opening is not an easy task and any intrusion to the space will startle them into an attack to protect themselves. These infestations will almost always need to be physically removed. This will involve cutting the space open for removal of the colony as well as the hive and honeycomb and associated debris. The void will then need to thoroughly washed and treated before being repaired and completely sealed. This will be not only a very difficult construction project, often at a considerable height and awkward angle, but a construction project complicated by the addition of tens of thousands of angry bees! Removals of this type always require the combined skills of beekeeper and carpenter. We have all those skills and offer them to every customer for the lowest possible price and the longest warranty. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed by Live Bee Removal Anchorage.

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.
