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 Crawford GA.
Honey Bees or Africanized Honey Bees? Know the Difference
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.
How Much Does Bee Removal Cost?
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.
