My sister and I call ourselves “The Bee Wranglers” and my name is Durenda. We offer bee removal services in Georgia. We have been removing honey bees from houses and commercial property for 5 years and have gained a lot of hands on experience. We keep honey bees in three locations in Georgia.
Honey Bee Rescue Services
- Remove Swarms
- Get hives out commercial buildings
- Remove bees out of trees
- Remove Honey bees out of houses
- Or bird houses, water meters, barrels… YOU NAME IT!!!
All of our honey bees are survivors that we rescued. I think that makes them special. The most important thing we have learned about honey bees is that if the people in the world were more like honey bees the world would be a better place. The good news about Georgia is that most pest control companies do not offer a rescue service for honey bees and they usually do not kill them either. So call Durenda at (404) 725-4648.
Since we get so many contacts from the website we have built a community with over 100 beekeepers in Georgia and around Chattanooga Tn. We tried for a few years to try and do them all but we just can’t. I work and I am getting old. We will do our best to make sure you have all of your needs met. We do not guarantee any work done by another beekeeper or consider ourselves responsible in any way the work of another beekeeper. We are acting solely as a connection hub so we can connect you with a beekeeper near you if we are unable to do the removal ourselves.
10 Things You Can Do to Help Save the Bees
Bees are beneficial insects in [post_name]. They generally will not sting unless bothered. If no one in your household is allergic to bees, it is best to leave them alone. If there is an infestation of bees, you can use several approaches for bee removal. It is important that you make sure that it is bees and not wasps because the techniques to get rid of the infestation differ. When doing bee removal, there are two basic options.
Humane bee removal
This method is usually recommended because of them being beneficial to the ecosystem. To use this method you will need to call in a [post_name] beekeeper. During this process of bee removal, the queen bee and all the worker bees are moved into a box and then the hive is removed. This is done during the evening when the bees are less active and more bees are in the hive. When the hive is removed all of the honey and beeswax must be removed. If not other bees may be attracted to the area and you will face the same problem over again. What attract other bees are the lingering bee pheromones. The [post_name] beekeeper will move the bees to a new location and set up with a new hive.
To dispose of the beehive properly once all the bees are dead you can place it in a plastic garbage bag, tie it securely, and put in a garbage can with a tight lid. If you have an area where you can burn things you could also burn the hive. Once you have cleaned the area watch to make sure that no more bees try to build a hive or nest there. If you notice the start of a new nest or hive there, knock it down before it becomes a problem.
1. Stop using insecticides - especially for 'cosmetic' gardening.
There are better ways of dealing with pests - especially biological controls. Modern pesticides are extremely powerful and many are long-lasting and very toxic to bees and other insects. Removing all unnecessary pesticides from the environment is probably the single most important thing we can do to save the bees.

Beware - many seeds are now coated with Clothianidin and related systemic insecticides, which cause the entire plant to become toxic to bees and all other insects that may feed on it. Check your seed packets carefully -and if in doubt, ask the manufacturer for full information.
3. Read the labels on garden compost - beware hidden killers!
