Honey Bee Rescue
Swarming is a natural phenomenon for honey bees and is the way colonies reproduce. When a honey bee colony outgrows its hive, the colony raises a new queen and swarms. The old queen leaves with half of the bees, leaving the new queen with the remaining half of the colony of bees. This process, however, can be a nuisance to home owners when the colony decides to take residence in an undesirable location. We find the colony, remove the bees, remove the hive, and work to prevent future infestations of the area, all without pesticides. The colony is then relocated to a new and safe location where it can grow and make honey.
During a swarm removal, we come to your property prior to the new colony establishing itself. The swarm is usually in a tree, bush or suspended on another structure. There is no honey comb or honey. The bees including the queen are removed and relocated.
If a honey bee colony has taken up residence in your home, then the entire hive will need to be removed. This includes removing all comb along with the honey and bees. If this is not done, then the honey and comb will attract other bees, wasps and hornets and will be prime food for other creatures, such as mice, rats, skunks etcetera.
If honey bees have made their home in or near your home, it is best to relocate them. Pest control companies will kill the bees with dust or atomized pesticides, but extermination with pesticides is an imperfect solution. First, it can put your home and family at risk by introducing chemicals. More importantly, the remaining honey, wax and dead bees will soon invite other pests to eat the hive products that remain in your walls. This will become a recurring problem if the hive itself is not removed. Our relocation service will come to your property and remove the entire colony with the wax, honey and relocate them to a new home
