Quick & easy steps to getting rid of a dangerous bee swarm
Because a bee swarm can be extremely dangerous when it’s in close proximity to human living or working spaces, it’s important to get rid of the swarm as quickly as possible. Besides the obvious risk of being stung (potentially hundreds of times in just seconds), the situation could be life-threatening for someone who is allergic to a bee’s sting.
Remember, a single bee hive can have up to 50,000 bees inside. If you have a swarm of bees in your backyard or anywhere on your property, then it’s critical that you take action right away. All it takes is one wrong move – perhaps a child playing too close or accidentally hitting the hive with a ball – to create a disastrous situation.

How To Remove A Swarm of Bees – 3 Steps
1. Call a professional bee control company right away
Most people do not know how to remove a swarm of bees the right way – and don’t have the training and proper equipment to do so. This is why it’s so important to call a professional, who not only knows how to remove a swarm of bees but also has years of experience doing so!
At the Bee Removal Specialist, each of our highly skilled bee control experts has significant experience in dealing with bee swarms and wasps. Plus, we’re located all over the country. All it takes is one call to have one of our professionals remove your bees – often the same day you call us.
2. Get away from that hive.
Whether or not you’ve already taken the first step of calling a bee exterminator, the next most important thing you can do is stay away from the hive. Get as far away from it as possible.
This may be difficult if the hive is right under your deck, under your porch, under the eaves of your home or perhaps in the walls. But for most people, avoiding being stung is as simple as keeping your distance from the bees. If you don’t bother them, they won’t bother you. It’s that simple!
3. Don’t do anything rash.
Some homeowners ultimately decide to act before they think. Unfortunately, this gung-ho attitude gets them into trouble. Whether you’re thinking about going after the swarm yourself (Related), knocking down the hive with a long pole, spraying the bees with some Raid or any other do-it-yourself method, we have one word of advice: DON’T.
These senseless strategies will only aggravate the bees and result in someone (you or anyone else nearby) getting badly stung.

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.
