We offer every manner of bee removal options here locally and can solve all your bee problems with our wide range of beekeepers and bee removal specialists. Most of us will never encounter a true swarm of bees. A swarm of bees is usually described as a big “ball of bees” or mass of bees by the folks that do witness one. It can be very alarming when a swarm of bees lands on your property. When you see a large group of bees, all piled upon themselves, on a tree limb, overhang, or other stationary structure. This group of bees is actually searching for a location in which to establish a new hive. They may land in many locations along their way. This means they may leave on their own accord. What we advise is that property owners keep their distance and carefully watch a bee swarm to make sure it leaves the property and doesn’t “move in” to a structure there. If a swarm cannot be avoided, or is creating a nuisance or hazard to someone who may have an allergy to bee venom., call upon an expert to remove it.
DO NOT EVER ATTEMPT TO INTERFERE WITH, OR REMOVE A BEE SWARM YOURSELF. While usually not aggressive, a swarm of bees will attack and sting to protect themselves if they feel threatened.

Some of our clients mistakenly refer to a colony of bees as a swarm. The main difference is a swarm will appear as a group of bees, all mounded onto one another, and will be visible on the OUTSIDE. Here in Michigan, our weather is too extreme for a colony of bees to choose to build a hive outside except in the rarest of exceptions. What you will notice is a line of bees, flying in and out of an opening into a structure INSIDE. These bees are using a small opening or gap into a structure as a “door” into a space which will have a void they can fill with wax comb, eggs and young bees and honey. You will generally see a lot more activity in and around the opening in mild weather when the colony will be at its largest size (up to 50,000) bees, and the bees are able to work gathering pollen from spring and summer food sources.

How do I find the right bee removal company? Here are some important questions to ask.
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.
