Spring is in the air, and there is no better time for bees to reproduce and build new hives!
Finding a swarm near your property can be pretty scary at times. When bees reproduce, they need to expand and move to a different hive (It’s kind of like kids leaving their parent’s home for a new one). They will create a new queen be, and a bunch of bees will ban together around the new queen and fly off to find a new space to inhabit and build a beautiful new hive full of wax and honey.
Bees will travel up to ten miles away to find a new hive, so if you have a beehive near your home, don’t be surprised if you find a swarm in your yard one day.
When this happens, give us a call! Bees that are swarming are usually peaceful, but they may be a threat to any curious dogs, and definitely a threat if someone has a bee allergy. Hundreds of bees travel together is no small matter. give us a call today to remove any swarm you find. Don’t let a bee swarm disrupt your springtime outdoor activities.
Another thing to be aware of, is that swarms can very quickly inhabit hollow spaces in and around your home to establish a colony. This could be a grill, chimney, eave, storage space, electrical box, or even a birdbox. This is why it is good to have a swarm removed immediately; if they start a colony in a space near your home, it could be a bigger hassle later. If it’s too late though, don’t worry! We also take care of live bee removal and will remove any hive built in a structure near your home.

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.
