Bee removal can be very dangerous. All bees are social creatures, so that whether they are in a swarm or a colony, you should expect that there are thousands, up to fifty-thousand members, all working cooperatively to protect themselves, their young and the hive. Most of our clients will only notice a few bees in one spot, maybe just flying in or out of an opening in a wall, eave or tree hollow. All of our clients are surprised to discover the actual numbers of bees that are residing within the space. Bee colonies will be working around the clock to produce more bees and honey. The debris involved in this process, along with the wax comb, piles up within the substructure as well, easily reaching over a hundred pounds in mass. Proper bee removal begins with removal of the insects themselves, but is not complete without total removal of the nest or hive. Once the cavity is opened and exposed, every trace of the hive and honeycomb must also be eliminated, and treated according to industry exacting standards. Lastly, the structure requires repair and complete sealing against future infestation. This process requires a combination of beekeeping and carpentry skills to ensure that the work is done correctly.
Often we are asked if there are alternatives to opening the space. People wonder if the bees can be coaxed out or perhaps may abandon the space without such drastic measures being undertaken. Unfortunately, the answer to this question is an emphatic NO. A colony of bees will not voluntarily abandon their brood (eggs and young) , hive (home), or work product (honey). The longer that bees live and work within the space, the bigger the problem will grow and the larger the project to remove it.

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.
