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 Chestnut Mountain 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 Chestnut Mountain 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 Chestnut Mountain GA.
10 Things You Can Do to Help Save the Bees
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.
2. Avoid seeds coated with systemic insecticides.
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!
9. Learn about bees - and tell others.
Bees are fascinating creatures that relatively few people take the trouble to understand. Read a good book about bees and beekeeping, and who knows - you might decide to:

Honey Bees or Africanized Honey Bees? Know the Difference
The life of honey bees and their activities are only a small part of the global bee population but one that is important to the ecosystem here in [post_name] GA.
More recently there has been some concern about the decrease in the world bee population and how it will affect many aspects of life on this planet. With die-offs of bee colonies around the world the last few years, the reason why there has been such a major decline in the honeybee population is still unknown.
Beekeepers have been aided by studies & beekeeping information on the life of honey bees for many years. Honey bees are very efficient at pollination for such plants as apple trees, flowering vegetables and the like. They do not fly from one plant species to another, but rather stick with one type of flowering plant and harvest the pollen until they exhaust the entire supply.
Almost anyone can begin keeping bees as a recreational hobby or as a lucrative business move.
Honey, which is of course a byproduct of a honeybee colony, can be used for some time since it does not rot or go bad. It is very portable and does not require exceptional storage requirements during processing.
You do not need a large area of land to start keeping a hive. It takes a very small amount of time and effort and does not require a large amount of supplies or advanced technology to be productive.
You will also be making a worthy contribution to the recent decline in the honeybee population and doing your bit for the environment!
