How Bee Removal is done in Gilbert

by | Feb 4, 2013 | Pest Control

A bee infestation in or very close to your home can be a real problem that will likely need to involve some type of removal. While honey bees are beneficial, we generally don’t want to share our living spaces with them. Other types of bees (or wasps) can be destructive and possible somewhat dangerous to have around, especially in large numbers. So how is bee removal done?

There are three ways that bees are usually removed from a property. You can either do it yourself, call a local beekeeper to do it for you, or call a professional service to have it done. Far and away, your best and safest bet is to call a professional. You do not want to attempt to do it yourself, especially if it’s not a situation you’re used to dealing with, because the bees can become easily agitated and defensive and will sting to protect their hive. You also may not know exactly what sort of bee you’re dealing with, and some can be much more aggressive than others. It could also turn out that you’re dealing with wasps or hornets, rather than bees, which can be even worse. Beekeepers will generally only remove honey bees, so if they show up and see that you’re dealing with another type of bee or wasp, they will probably not be able to help you. So that leaves you with the professional method.

A professional bee removal service will have all the tools and experience to handle the situation properly and get the job done right the first time. They will come to your home and examine the area where the bees have built their hive and from that point will determine what the best method for removal will be. If the hive is located outside, the task of removal can be somewhat easier, but if bees have built a hive inside your walls, it can be a bit tricky, which is yet another reason why you should leave this sort of project to a professional.

The removal service will use the safest methods possible to remove the bees and the hive they have built. Most likely, they will spray the area where the bees are living, which may initially agitate them, but should quickly subdue and likely kill them. This process will probably need to be repeated over the course of two or three days to ensure that as many members of the hive are exterminated before the hive itself is removed. It’s important to remove the hive, especially if it’s located inside the walls of your home, because once the bees are gone, honey will remain, and will melt, and will then attract either a new group of bees, or other pests—or possibly both.
