Bee Removal + Rescue
HIVE Bee Farm Rescue and Removal Services specialize in safe removal of honey bees while protecting you and your property.
We are lisensed and reistered with the state of Texas and are insured providers.
What to Expect
Each removal is different depending on the location (home siding, attic, roof, fence etc.), volume and maturity of the bee colony but you can expect the following:
- Removals can take between 2 and 2 days for large colonies
- During removals we utilize smoke to calm the bees
- As part of the process we may need to remove siding, paneling, walls and other structures to reach the colony.
- Honey Bees are removed by utilizing a vacuum system to rehome them Alive
- Chemicals/Pesticides are not used in the removal process
- Honey Bees will be captured and moved to our Bee Farm to live a happy life in a safe environment
- We will remove all honey comb and place the bees into a wooden beehive to begin rebuilding their colony
- All wax, bees, larva, and honey are removed to prevent attracting rodents, roaches, ants, and other pests
- An organic/non-harmful insect repellant and paint primer will be sprayed into the cavity to prevent future colonies
- After the removal, you will see some foraging bees return to the location but they should leave within 2 weeks
- We do not provide repairs post removal. Plan to contract for those services separately a few days after the rehoming
Why Us vs. an Exterminator?
Because we remove the bees alive and relocate them to produce honey, savings are passed on to the client by offering removals cheaper than most exterminators. Removal, as opposed to extermination, eliminates risk of exposure to toxic chemicals. Additionally, extermination leaves the wax unprotected from summer heat and pests, resulting in decay of comb and honey and potential damage to surrounding wood and drywall. In many cases we have seen new bee colonies show up in the same location due to the remaining smell/wax of the previous colony.
Most importantly our services save the bees, which in turn supports our local environments and ecosystems. Bees are responsible for pollinating approximately 16% of global flowering plants and around 400 agricultural crop plants. Have you thought about how your garden would look without its’ flowers or meals without oranges, almonds or other produce?
We have the right to refuse service based on the safety of the location.
