Within the city of Plano, Bee Swarm Removal is our specialty.
You will find no better company to remove a pesky swarm of bees from your residential or commercial property than us. We are experts in the safe and live removal of bee swarms. Do NOT ever consider interfering with a bee swarm yourself. While a swarm is rarely aggressive, it will attack if it feels threatened and there are a lot more bees contained within that swarm that it may appear.
Once the bees are removed they are placed into an apiary. This is most often in a rural area where the bees will be housed in man-made removable frame hives so they can be maintained by a beekeeper. In most States, there are strict regulations with regard to the keeping of bees, particularly in populated and urban areas. Beekeepers must keep bees in a way that is strictly monitored and inspected by regulatory agencies against disease and the spread of Afican, “killer” bees. This is particularly true here in Texas.
The reason that it is so important to keep a close eye on or remove a swarm of bees from an urban or populated area is simple. This swarm is homeless, it has branched off from it’s existing hive and is looking for a new location to build comb and begin producing honey. Bees rarely select an outdoor area for their habitat. In nature these hives are built inside the hollow of a tree and a swarm of bees is searching for something similar. This can become dangerous and do extensive damage if the bees select a tiny opening into the structure of your home or commercial building. The amount of work and cost involved in removing an established colony of bees as well as the hive and honey, from the structure of a building, is considerable.
There was once a time that a swarm of bees was considered to be of some value or monetary worth, particularly to a budding or hobbyist beekeeper. Before the art of beekeeping was so heavily regulated by State and Federal agencies. Before the introduction of African or “killer” bees into our wild bee population. Before the insurance and licensing requirements were set up limiting a beekeepers ability to transport bees across City and County lines. before ordinances which prohibit keeping or raising bees within certain City limits. You get the picture. The fact is that these regulations, and the costs associated with them, have made it too great a burden and too expensive for the “back yard” bee hobbyist to practice this art. Keeping and maintaining bees properly and legally has, over the last two decades, become a specialized and costly business.
We believe we have the perfect partnership between the Art and the business of beekeeping. You will find us old-fashioned in our love of the bees and our willingness to go the extra mile for our customers and up to date with regard to all the regulations governing their removal. We offer the lowest possible price, fast and efficient service and guarantee your complete satisfaction.
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.
