Another Beehive Rescued in Houston
Heathbrook Lane, Houston, TX 77094
Bee Removal Houston is proud to be more than just a bee removal company, we are beekeepers too. The safety of a beehive is always put first, they play an extremely important part in the environment.
We always take our rescued honeybees to a local apiary in the area, where they will be kept for educational purposes and construct their honeycombs without causing any damage to people’s property.
For example, this family noticed bees coming in and out of their soffit. Bee Removal Houston sent our experts to investigate. Within minutes with our advanced infrared technology the exact location was found. There were around twenty thousand honeybees in this soffit, collecting nectar and pollen to make honey for quite a while.
To begin the live bee removal process, plastic is placed on the floor and near the walls. A smoker is used near the wall opening to relax and calm the bees. Bees collected from a bee vacuum are gently placed into a nucleus box.
With the bees out of the way, a hive tool is used to cut the combs out of the surrounding area. After the hive is completely removed from the soffit, the location is sanitized to remove pheromones that would attract other bees. Finally, the area is packed with insulation to stop another hive from building in that area. It is then sealed with clear caulk as if we were never there.
