June 2020

Bee Safe Bee removal team arrived at a commercial apartment building to remove a beehive from the air vent between the 2nd and 3rd floor of an apartment. The removal  took around almost two hours to complete. Over three thousand bees were rescued and over 20 pounds of honey were removed from the site. Our bee removal experts estimate the age of the hive at to be around five to seven months old. Air vents should be covered with a vent cap to prevent any bees, or other stinging insects, from building their hive inside the structure.

Houston is home to a variety of different honeybees, and as such, bee infestations can become a hassle for homeowners. Often, homeowners have novice pest control companies go into their home and kill a beehive without removing the nest. Nests that are inadequately removed cause severe damage to the inside of your home as honey drips down your home and, in time, begins attracting pests and worms as the honey rots.

Caring Eco-Friendly Beekeeping

 

As professional beekeepers, we care for bees as one would care for any other animal. We safely remove the bees using a bee vac, and then we bring them to our apiary located in the backyard of our business. Then on the weekend we take our bees and settle them in one of three apiaries that we have in Dallas and Oklahoma. Throughout the cold winter months, we make sure to feed our bees plenty of pollen patties to ensure that they have the highest probability of living. We are bee guys and gals; beekeeping is in our blood. For more bee control tips and tricks check out this resource.

Bee Removal Specialist 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 Specialist 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.

Some might ask “How do bees choose where to begin their new home?” The answer is quite interesting. When a colony’s hive become too small for the bees, a swarm of honeybees leave the hive and scout for a secure location to start building its nest. They look anywhere that is hollow or wooden it has the ideal conditions to store honey. In this case the shed was the perfect place.
A live bee removal process starts by opening the location of where the hive is located. Then a smoker is used to calm the bees down to be less aggressive. This does not hurt the bees, it just helps the bee rescue to go quickly. With the use off a bee vacuum the queen bee and the rest of the colony are safely placed in a bee box.
If you notice bees gathering near your home, it is important to call a professional beekeeper to remove the colony as soon as possible, if not, the bees can move their colony onto your property and build their hive. Check for any cracks or openings around your home or business to make sure they are sealed preventing any bee infestations
At Bee Removal Specialist, we offer bee proofing services to keep the bees from returning to your property structure, with a one-year warranty.
The honeybees were relocated to an apiary near Houston with a local beekeeper.
