Honey Bee Hive Removal
While they are generally considered to have huge benefits to the environment, most people do not want a swarm of bees anywhere near their property. Honey bee hive removal is not an easy task to undertake, and swarm removal of this sort is best left to the experts.
When we perform a honey bee hive removal, we do it in such a way as we control the process, and therefore keep the swarm under control while we do our work.
It is essential, additionally, to be absolutely certain that it is, indeed, honey bees we are dealing with – there are very particular ways in which we ascertain this, and ascertain whether we are dealing with bees, or whether it is a more dangerous threat, such as wasps or hornets. The main difference between the two, is that bees are NOT aggressive, and unless you pose a direct threat to them, they will not attack. Wasps and hornets will attack indiscriminately, and pose significant danger if they attack as a swarm.
You may think, well, bees aren’t aggressive, so I will just remove their hive, and be done with it. You undertake this at your own peril, because as I said earlier, otherwise passive bees will attack, in number, if you threaten their nest, and by association, their queen. Although the bees die during this process, their only focus will be on protecting their queen – their own lives are entirely unimportant in comparison.
The swarm removal process, and the way we work, protects us from attack. We use personal protective equipment, and have the most up to date skills and many years of experience. Additionally, and particularly with Honey Bees, they generally like to build their hive’s in difficult to access places, such as wall cavities, roof spaces, or anywhere else which is enclosed and difficult to reach. The bees, during the removal process, will become flustered, and will be extremely prone to attack as we do our job – it is crucial, during this time, that everyone is kept indoors during the process. Our protective suits will guard us against any attack. If you do not own the specific protective equipment, and do not know the correct processes for accessing hives in difficult places, and thereafter the process for extermination and removal, then you put yourself in quite significant danger of ending up in a situation that you cannot control.
We offer a number of very competitively priced services to assist you in the extermination of honey bees, wasps and hornets. It is crucial that the hive is removed, and disposed of. Due to the use of pesticides, it needs to be handled as hazardous waste, it can’t just be popped in the dustbin.
