Before calling a bee exterminator you may well want to consider the fact that bees can be quickly and effectively removed alive without the need for harmful poisons or the needless extermination of these essential little creatures essential for pollination
Swarm Removal and Bee Relocation
Swarming is an essential part of the natural life cycle of honeybees. When a particular bee colony becomes too large for its existing hive, the swarm divides and seeks out a new residence. During this time you may find a mass of bees buzzing widely about, or clumped heavily on structures such as trees, fences, or tree branches.
Whilst the sight may seem rather unnerving, swarming bees are not apt to be dangerous, rather the bees are more docile than normal. The swarm may be present anywhere from a few hours to a number of days until they can find a new home
If you come across a swarm of honey bees, don't panic. Give us a call and we will collect the bees and carefully transport them to a new, safe location where we can set them up in a new hive.Please consider the following precautions
- Keep children and pets away from the bees
- Keep doors and windows closed until the bees have clustered
- If you do go outside ensure you are wearing closed shoes
- Do not provoke, poke or attempt to chase away the bees, if left alone they will calmly cluster. If aggravated they will sting in defence
Bees often nest in a sheltered, darkened enclosure. Typically you may find them in house walls, roof eaves, attics, outdoors in tree hollows or sheds.
Rather than killing the bees we will safely remove the entire swarm.
Gaining access to a hive may at times be difficult; however we do enjoy a challenge and have been known to have removed bees from some pretty awkward locations
