Honey bees will normally build a hive in an open covered area of your building where there is no insulation. If you believe you have a hive of honey bees in your Bluffton home more than likely they are in between the floors of your home. Our process for removing the honey bees is to go into the hive from underneath keeping your repair bill down with only drywall repair.
Even though the honey bees are entering your Bluffton home at one place does not mean that is where the beehive is. They can travel behind the wall all the way up to the soffit.
It helps if you can take pictures of the area they are entering your home and send them to us. We can do a lot of assessment with your pictures before we arrive. We will ask you questions when we call about the structure so we can be ready with the tools needed to do the bee removal job properly in Bluffton GA.
Sustaining the Honeybee
These are the factors that determine the cost of bee removal in [post_name] GA and what you should look for in the way of a permanent and ecological solution. Grab a pencil because you will want to jot these points down and convey them to your bee technician when you call him for a estimate. Here we go.
The main factors that determine the cost of bee removal are:
- How big is the space where they are inhabiting?
- How long have they been there?
- How high off the ground are they?
- How aggressive are your bees?
How big is the space?
Bees will grow until they reach their limits. When they reach that limit they will instinctively begin to feed Royal Jelly to a bee larva and produce another queen. The new queen will remain and the old queen will fly off with half the worker bees and start a new home. So be careful, that could mean that you end up with 2 or more new colonies to remove! Bees divide from 3 to 13 times per year! If the space where your bees are residing is small they will divide more often but if they are in a big space those bees will continue to build their colony until its quite large. So it's easy to see that more time, in a bigger space, will more likely mean you will have a big bee colony to remove. Most companies will give you a best case and worse case estimate of costs based on the "history" of infestation. Lets talk a little about spaces.
The last factor is something that has grown to be a consideration in recent years with the arrival of the African Killer bee, so called. These are honey bees that have a very aggressive nature and they will hybridize with our domestic bees and make a more aggressive bee. If the bees are too aggressive then more care and greater pains must be made to make sure your situation is being handled quickly and safely including the need for your bee technician to spend more time in a hot bee suit, this potentially can add to the over all price of resolving your bee issues. Its important to note that very few bees are so aggressive that they need to be destroyed. So please, if you can, consider live bee removal and save the bees.
How to Arrange a Bee Hive Removal
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?
