Bee removal can be dangerous and sometimes difficult; a few bees buzzing around the exterior or inside the house is usually a sign of a beehive. An established beehive consists of many thousands of bees with honeycombs.

Sometimes an exterminator is used to exterminate the bees, but the honeycomb is left in the wall. This is never recommended in that it attracks other pests and if the opening is not sealed the bees will often return, perhaps years later. It is reccommended under most circumstances to completely remove and relocate the entire hive. If the bee colony has just appeared and is congregating outdoors, it is called a swarm. An average swarm maybe 5,000 - 20,000 bees and the size of a football or larger.

In case of a Swarm on a shrub or tree, best to leave it alone and call a beekeeper immediately. There are scout bees looking for a cavity with an opening the size of a dime. The scout bees (the bees hovering around the outside of the ball of bees) are signaling their next move. That move could be YOUR attic, your boat, your camper your dryer vent, or your garage. Once they are inside, it makes it more difficult to remove the bees and the effort and cost of removal increases.



The Trap Out

Trap out, a process that allows the bees to leave the hive thru a mesh cone. They are unable to get back in. Meanwhile a baited box is placed next to the entrance of the original hole for the hive. With bait and easy access, the bee keeper basically tricks the bees into using the new box. In approximately 3 to 4 weeks the queen will emerge and enter the baited box. The beekeeper after monitoring the process for the duration removes the relocated hive with the queen and bees safely inside and seals the old entrance hole.

This process allows for the bee eggs to hatch. Larva grow into bees and leave. All the honey nectar and pollen is consumed. When complete all that is left behind is some empty wax comb. Killing bees inside a wall or floor of the structure is an option, however, the smell of dead bees and fermenting honey will attract other insect pests and will, at least for a short time, encourage you to move from your home.

The Cut Out

Bee Removal using the cut out method entails a blending of apian and construction skills, learned primarily by hands-on experience. A bee removal specialist has to know how to expose bee colonies within a structure, a tree, or container. In addition, recognition of the potential danger they pose, is essential in making a professional decision as how to proceed.

Many beekeepers will leave the exposed structure for the property owner or a professional carpenter to complete the structural repairs and to seal the opening. It is important to clarify this point before the work is to proceed.

This process removes all the bees and honeycomb from the confined space and once the access opening is repaired and sealed, it will eliminate any further investations.
