Sometimes,swarms will find an area of your home in which to start their new colony. Our removal service will locate the colony and, with your approval, remove the bees, the beeswax, honey and larvae and relocate them to a safer location. Typical colony locations within your house may include soffit or eave • behind a fireplace • In a dormer/shed roof• porch ceilings or anywhere there is a cavity and access from the outside to the cavity.
We are often asked, "What if we leave them alone". In reality, the honey bees are not your concern. depending on the time of year, there can be as many as 70,000 honey bee and over 50 pounds of honey wax and larvae in a typical colony. Honey bees keeps the wax from melting in hot weather. If the bee's happen to disappear (through disease or extermination), then the wax may melt causing the honey and larvae to "drip" down the inside of your walls causing significantly more damage in terms of mold, vermin (rodents etc.) and other insects (ants etc.)
We will come to your location free of charge, assess the situation and offer an estimate to remove the colony. Our professional staff members take the utmost care in your home, removing only the minimal amount of housing material in order to remove the colony.

How do you know if you have honey bees?
Due to media and folk lore, honey bees have suffered from an identity crisis for years. Asides from the common housefly and butterflies, it seems every insect that flies is mistaken for the honey bee. We often get swarm calls for what customers believe to be a hive only to discover the nest is a Bald-Faced Hornet nest or more commonly mistaken for Yellow Jackets which are considered a wasp. We have compiled the following web page to assist in identifying your invasive insect.
