Realizing that you are sharing your living or work space space with a colony of bees can be alarming. Come Spring, the bees will again be swarming, that is, splitting off from their existing hives in order to create a new one. This is the bee species version of expansion. A swarm of bees will appear as a large mass of bees all piled together, sometimes in the shape of a ball or triangular bear shape. Do not approach a swarm of bees. This mass is comprised of thousands of bees and although not naturally aggressive, will attack if it feels threatened. If you notice a bee swarm on your property,call us for expert advice and fast removal before it can become a larger, more expensive nuisance. We can and will safely remove the swarm, relocating to a more rural area where it can continue with the very important jobs that honey bees provide. As beekeepers first, we save every honey bee we can!
Swarming bees will naturally be drawn to a tree hollow or similar wooden structure, which will provide safety from the elements and predators. Whichever space they select they will enter through a crack or space so small that you may have not ever noticed it prior. Once inside, they immediately begin their busy work, the queen will begin laying up to 1,500 eggs per day while the remainder of the colony will begin construction of the wax comb that will house them and gathering the pollen which they will use in their honey production. Once bees have entered the structure you may notice only a few, flying in and out of the space. Seeing only a few bees does not mean that you only have a small problem. There is no such thing as a small colony of bees. There will be tens of thousands of bees inside the space. We have seen colonies made up of over 50,000 bees inside a structure. Bees that have established a hive will continue to grow their colony and become more and more aggressive in their desire to protect the work they have accomplished there. In order to remove bees from within a structure, as described here, it will be necessary to open the structure and physically remove the bees as well as all the related bee material therein.

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.
