That tiny hive could double or triple in size and by midsummer, there could be twenty thousand bees in the hive. The hive has everything that the needs for survival, which includes pollen, honey, worker bees, and larvae. The small hive may only weigh a few pounds but if it is an established and active beehive, there could be over one hundred pounds of honey in the combs. As you can see this type of hive can make beehive removal potentially messy and more difficult.
During the summer when the temperature starts to rise, the beehive will rely on the bees to help keep the wax inside the hive cool. If the hive is left alone for any reason, the wax can start to melt and cause the hive to collapse. Attempting to move its contents and hive can be costly and difficult. With any beehive removal the sooner the problem is taken care of the less complicated and expensive it will be.
