For bee swarm removal in San Antonio, we should be the only call you need to make!
When you first see a swarm of bees, the site can be very alarming. Thousands of bees, affixed to a tree or overhang on your property. These bees are searching for a new spot to call home. While the bulk of the colony will stay “balled up”, a formation which protects the queen bee in the center of the mass, “scout” bees will be traveling to and fro in search of a location to establish a new hive. While a swarm of bees can look intimidating, they are generally not aggressive and will only act to defend themselves if disturbed. It is very important to stay clear of a swarm of bees, it is NOT safe to approach or disturb them unless you are an experienced beekeeper. Here in San Antonio, with our beautiful weather year-round, we have a much longer bee season than in other parts of the Country, making it an ideal location for bees to live. While we all value bees and understand how important they are to the environment and our way of life, hosting a colony of bees on your residential or commercial property becomes a nuisance as well as a safety issue.
When faced with a swarm of bees on your property it is important to know that you are having them responsibly and safely removed for relocation. There are many City and State ordinances which govern how bees may be moved and kept. We at San Antonio Bee Swarm Removal are all licensed experts in this regard, fully compliant with all regulatory agencies. The swarms we remove, if healthy and safe, will be relocated onto apiaries, also known as bee farms. While it is the hope of the beekeepers that these colonies will adjust to life within the parameters dictated by the law, the fact is some will not. Bees are not domesticated, they are free to come and go from their hives and many will choose to take their chances back out into the wild rather than live within the confines dictated by the beekeepers. Some of the colonies will carry disease that can endanger the other colonies on the farm and a small percentage of the bees will be africanized, to aggressive to be kept. It is for these reasons that beekeepers must charge for their services. The maintenance and upkeep of the bees, after the expense of removal, is also very costly. Unfortunately the days of “free bee removal” have passed.

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.
