Often times bees are able to locate small openings and get into structures like eves, roofs, chimneys, walls, fences or other locations around your home or business. We have all the necessary tools and expertise to exactly locate where they are in the structure. We try to avoid having to cause any structural damage in getting to the swarm or hive. However, sometimes it is necessary to cut into the eves, roof, wall or other areas in order to completely and safely remove the swarm or hive to ensure they will not return. After the location and assessment of the swarm or hive we put together a bee removal plan and provide a complete quote for all work involved including the patching and repairing when necessary to restore the structure to its original condition. We will provide you with a detailed estimate for your approval prior to beginning any repair work.
If bees have been there for more than 1-2 weeks they will have already produced a significant amount of honey and honeycomb. If the hive and honey are not properly removed there are several problems that could occur. Firstly honey filled hives often melt over time allowing the honey to run free and cause further damage to the structure. In addition, other pests including insects and rats could be attracted to this honey causing further problems. Also, just as important, other scout bees have extremely good sense of smell and can often identify previous hive locations due to the scent of the honey which makes is an appealing place for other bee swarms to relocate to.
We are beekeepers and love rescuing and relocating bees, this is our expertise. In addition we possess the carpentry skills and equipment to make hive removal repairs go as smoothly as possible. The sooner the bee hive is removed the less structural damage there will be. Give us a call and we can explain how we can solve your bee problem.
