Honey Bee Rescue in Georgia

We have been beekeepers for 8 years and started doing honey bee rescue a few years ago. We learned mostly by watching youtube videos mostly made by JP The Bee Man. We are now friends with him on Facebook and he knows our story.

Bee Removal Methods

We made our own bee vacuum to make our removals more successful and when I say that I am referring to not killing the honey bees. The removal process of a beehive in the walls usually takes a few hours to remove. There is nothing easy about removing bees from a building. It is hot in the bee suit, you have to be patient and gentle to protect the bees and then there is the clean up.

Nothing is worse than finding bees in your [post_name] home because they can be dangerous and annoying. Many times you can just open the door or window and shoo them back outside but there are times that you will find it is not just one bee but an infestation. A [post_name] homeowner can do a bee removal on their own but sometimes it will require the services of a bee exterminator. One bee that you should worry about finding in your home is the carpenter bee. These bees do not sting but are harmful to wood because they make holes in the wood. Another type of bee that you need to worry about finding in your home is the yellow jacket wasps. They sting just because they want to without provocation and like to make nests in any corner or nook.

To get rid of the nest you need to wait until dusk when the bees have returned home and their reflexes are not as fast as they would be during the day. Make sure that you are wearing protective coverings to help prevent any stings. One way to do this is to hold a burning paper right at the entrance or just below the nest. They will get irritated and leave the nest. Once they are all gone you can knock down the nest and take it out to destroy by smashing it or burning it. You can also spray it with an insecticide.

This is about wild bee hives. Wild bees that live peacefully doing their activities without any intention of stumbling in a human daily life are occasionally found guilty for being an annoyance to us. Without any guilty feelings or just being naive, they build nest in our home or land, probably in the wall of your home or on a nearby tree.

So far there isn't any problem yet. But this can change in a sudden when a false alarm triggers the bees to protect their hive and hurting somebody around with their stings. Or maybe someone was trying to do something that might threaten their hive or other bees. This will make them attack people, which is a perfect reason to get rid of them and remove the hive out of the [post_name] neighborhood.

Bee hive removal can be a "do it yourself" job if you prepare yourself very well and ready with the consequences. But it is best if this job is done by a pest control service which has all the resources, expertise and skill to totally clean up the area from bees. A total approach of bee hive removal is a step by step procedure which is finding the hive, removing the bees, removing the hive and the prevention of future disturbances by the bees.

After removing the hive and the killed bees, wash the place thoroughly using a detergent and water. This is to make sure that all possible bee traces that can be detected by other foraging bees and make them attracted to this place. Close all possible entry points where the bees can pass through. Do not forget to seal the hole(s) you have made to apply the insecticide as well other openings in your wall.

That's it. The bee hive removal job is done. However, I still recommend that you appoint a reputable pest control agent. Although it seems that the job is quite easy to be done by yourself but it bears some risk, especially if you're unaware that you may be allergic to bee stings. Second, going up on ladder fully dressed with your beekeeping suit is really not an easy task to do. Isn't it?
