BEE REMOVAL INSPECTION
A thorough inspection is conducted by licensed beekeepers to determine the type and extent of the bee infestation. The beekeeper will then discuss the most efficient method that’s within the client’s budget.
Live Bee Removal
After inspection, the licensed beekeeper will discuss the various removal options with the customer. All live bee removals are conducted following the local laws and regulations.
Wildlife Control Specialist service partners use all available methods of live bee removal using the safest most efficient methods, including structural assessment via thermal imaging infrared cameras and physical inspection of the beehive or swarm location.
Types of Removals
Live Swarm Removal
During a swarm removal, the beekeeper will use a bee vacuum or bee brush to move the bees into a bee box for relocation. This type of removal is usually done the same day a customer calls.
Live Bee Removal No Construction
Live bee removal with no construction is done when a bee infestation is not severe. This process involves the removal of an exposed beehive from the outside of a structure, without the need for construction.
Bee Removal With Construction
A severe bee infestation will require construction in order to access the beehive. This involves opening walls, ceilings, floors, roofs, and other structures to have an opening to remove the beehive or swarm.
After the bees are humanely removed, the location is cleaned, sanitized and treated to prevent any future infestation. The insulation is then replaced and the area is sealed by using the original materials. We do not provide painting or stucco services.
Bees, and many other types of wildlife, love to build nests inside walls, attics, eaves, patios, and garages. They can, however, become a threat to people and pets inside your home or business. The longer the bees stay in your structure, the larger the hive becomes and the risk of damage to your home or business increases. Bee proofing is particularly important to people who are allergic to bees, have children, pets, or elderly family members.
What kind of damage can bees cause?
Bees that build their hive inside the walls of your home or business can cause structural problems due to the honey dripping from the hive, damage to plumbing and insulation, and damage to electrical wiring leading to fires and other hazards. They can also bring parasites and bacteria and attract other pests, such as rodents.
Bee Proofing Process
A wildlife control specialist that’s trained in bee proofing will carefully inspect your home or business to identify possible bee entry points. The beekeeper documents the areas needing treatment, ranging from walls to chimneys. They then work closely with the customer to determine the best method for bee proofing the structure.
During bee proofing, all possible entry points are professionally sealed and guaranteed for one year. If the bees do return, the area is repaired free of charge.
