At Live Bee Removal Seattle, we have been providing beekeeping and bee removal services to residents in the Seattle area for more than 25 years. Our service providers are trained, licensed and fully insured. We also provide one of the
best warranties in the industry. Bee Removal takes a delicate touch and it can be tricky, particularly if the bees and their hive are in your home or business. You may see only about a dozen or so bees flying in and out of an opening, but that is evidence of a much bigger problem. Proper bee removal will require opening the cavity that the bees are building in, whether it is the wall, roof or some other part of your property, revealing the reality of the problem—tens of thousands of bees.
What most people do not anticipate and may be shocked to learn is that a hive can contain 50, 60 or even 100 pounds of honeycomb as well—depending on how long the hive has been there. That honeycomb contains, of course, loads of honey, which must all be removed in order to prevent further damage to the structure when the honey starts to seep through walls, roof, etc. The longer you wait to call in a professional bee removal company, the more time you are giving the bees to further expand the size and numbers of members in the hive—and that can cost you money. No other company can match the services and warranty provided by Seattle Live Bee Removal. We also specialize in the removal of wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets and their nests, and we can help you solve any issue with other flying insects as well. We guarantee that, once we are done, we will leave you a happy customer and a future client. Please don’t hesitate to call us, 24/7 365 days a year.
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.
