We do live bee removal. Bee keeping is one of my hobbies and in keeping with the tradition of good bee management we would prefer that you have bees removed by someone who will re-hive the bees rather than simply exterminating them. As you may have seen in the news, bee colonies have been in decline in recent years due to "Colony Collapse Disorder". While the cause is still unknown we need to do everything we can to help prevent the loss of the very valuable honey bee. Honey and the Honey Bee are very much a part of the American landscape and culture. Even the name of our company includes a version of the spelling for honey, we use the Winnie the Pooh spelling.
We have done many bee removals and from a variety of locations, in walls, or in soffets. Behind brick walls, in water meters, in chimneys. Bees only need a 3/8" diameter hole to enter and exit a cavity to build a hive.
Our biggest removal was from between the first and second floor of a house. This hive was several years old and was in excess of 300 lbs in weight.
So called "Killer Bees" are manageable by an experienced bee keeper but can be dangerous around an unwary public. We call these bees, Africanized Bees, and unfortunately there is no way to tell them from standard more docile bees by looking at them. Only when they attack will you know the difference.
If you have a bee problem please give us or another bee removal service a call. Do not try and deal with them yourself, as even non-africanized bees will sting you to protect the hive.
Our rates for bee removal varies based on the location and difficulty of access. We will do as little damage to your property as possible to effect the removal of the bees. We can also quote you for the repairs if need be and those repairs are within our abilities. Otherwise you may need to contact other professionals to make repairs needed after the removal process.
