Santa Barbara Bee Removal

When looking for the right Santa Barbara Bee Removal Company, always ask the bee removal service if they are beekeepers. That's one way of finding out if they really know something about bees and if they really care about their survival. We are beekeepers, and we have been for over 30 years. Bee Safe Bee Removal Specialist started out as a beekeeping company and then graduated into offering other services.
We now remove yellow jackets, wasp, cicada killers, hornets of all types, bumble bees, bee control and of course bee hive removal and swarm removal. Usually the reason why most people will call a Santa Barbara bee company first after discovering their stinging insect problem is because they don't have an extra bee suit laying around the house.
Bees act as their very own AC system. They use their wings to keep the honeycomb at a cool 94 degrees while the temperature outside may be 110. We know how to get rid of bees humanly, and there is more to removing bees and wasp than just a bee suit and a can of wasp killer. We have learned to remove a bee hive alive without having to ever use any chemicals.
It's a really great feeling when you open up someone's house and find a massive bee hive inside working away to make its sweet honey. The honey is usually what we call, "Our Bonus". We enjoy relocating swarms to our bee yards in Santa Barbara. To us, each swarm of honey bees, is like a wild animal. The difference with trapping bees verses wild animals is, we actually take the bees back to our property and give them a new home. We build our own bee boxes and frames. We like to keep twenty or more empty boxes available at all times for new arriving swarms.
Some days we can pick up three to four bee swarms in a single afternoon. We use several different locations around Santa Barbara as our apiary. On a daily basis during the swarming season, we will pick up swarms of honey bees and drop them off at one of our apiaries, usually at the location that is closer. Finding the queen is almost impossible when the bees are grouped up in a ball shaped figure. After we place a swarm into a bee box full of frames, we then search for her and find her. For some reason, this is one of my favorite little things to do when working with the bees.
Bee Removal in Santa Barbara is a specialty business. Here in Santa Barbara you won't find a lot of pest control companies offering bee removal. Many people don't want to get into a profession where part of the job is getting stung on a daily basis. We cover the entire Santa Barbara area. Here in Santa Barbara, most homes are made with wood eaves. This is exactly what bees are looking for. The honey bees' natural home is a hollowed out tree, which is wood. So they are naturally attracted to your wood eave or between the walls where they find a lot of wood.
In order to remove a bee hive from an eave or from between the floors of a house, you must first smoke the bees. This is the most important step to take in order to get the bees to calm down. The smoke covers the attack scent and also causes the honey bees to think that the bee hive is on fire. Instincts cause the honey bee to salvage as much honey as possible when the hive is on fire.
Once we get in there, we see most of the bees sucking up the honey as fast as they can. This makes our job much easier. While the bees are busy sucking down the honey, we start cutting out the wax combs and honey and place each section into the bee box. Now after all of the honey and hive has been scraped out and the cavity washed thoroughly, we will pack the cavity full of insulation. Our job is not finished until the house looks like it was never touched. Our highly skilled carpenters do all of the repair work and they seal all that was opened up. This really gives our customers peace of mind, so that they don't have to look for a contractor who will hopefully do a good job. Bee Safe Bee Removal Specialist is the best choice when looking for a professional bee removal company to do the job right the first time.
