Most areas have strict regulations and ordinances with regard to the keeping of bees. Beekeeping within city limits or by hobbyists within urban areas is generally discouraged and sometimes prohibited. Beekeepers are usually licensed and registered, as well as their bees which are inspected regularly to ensure their health and the protection of the species. Beekeeping has become an expensive endeavor. While the days of the “back yard bee keeper” have passed, here at Live Bee Removal Memphis, we are working hard to maintain bees and the historic art of beekeeping in this modern world.
Our greatest sense of accomplishment is when we receive a call for removal of a live swarm. Live bee swarm removal requires a trained and delicate touch. Our beekeepers capture swarms, removing them from urban areas where they may cause a nuisance, for relocation to less populated areas where the bees will thrive. A swarm of bees in our neighborhood or local business often poses a danger to the general population. While ordinarily not aggressive, if disturbed a swarm will attack. Nobody enjoys a bee sting, so imagine having thousands of bees flying at you. For the small percentage of the population with allergies to bee venom, this can prove life threatening. A swarm of bees is a group of bees who are searching for a location to build a new. A swarm on your property may be evidence that you already have a colony of bees or bee hive in or around your area. Obviously it also means that this swarm may select a location upon or within your property to create a new hive. While bee colonies in the wild are necessary to our way of life, having one share your work or living space is not pleasant and removing an established colony is a far more expensive bee problem to correct. Acting quickly to remove a swarm will guarantee that you do not have to worry about the far more extensive work necessary to remove a colony and hive from within or behind your walls.
If your problem is NOT a swarm of bees, but is a bee colony, residing within a tree or structure on your property, we can still remove it. Our expert bee removal team will be able to assess your specific problem quickly and efficiently. Working within your budget and the specifics of your situation, we can offer a solution for everyone. These removals require a combination of beekeeping and carpentry skills. We are specially trained in both areas and have combined knowledge and skill spanning two generations. We offer a written warranty and guarantee of satisfaction to our bee removal clients.
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.
