At the first sign of a bee problem on their San Diego property, many homeowners want someone there fast. While there are plenty of bee removal services in the area to choose from, it is worth it to do a little research to make sure you are choosing a reputable and experienced company. In addition to checking reviews and reading their website, it is recommended that you contact them to ask some important questions.
If you have never hired a live bee removal company before, you may not know where to start. Below, we have highlighted three of the top questions you should ask before hiring a local San Diego live bee removal company.
Bee swarms and infestations cannot always be ignored, especially when they put people or the structure of your home in danger. Instead of waiting and hoping the bees leave the premises, you need an experienced, reliable and professional bee removal company to help you safely and humanely rid your property of bees. D-Tek Live Bee Removal can help you from start to finish, with comprehensive services and honest pricing.
Are bees harmed during the removal process?
The first question to ask before hiring a prospective bee removal company is how they treat the bees during and after the removal process. Some run-of-the-mill extermination companies will use harsh chemicals that will harm and kill honey bees, while also leaving behind unsafe chemicals that can be dangerous for your family.
Before hiring any company to perform a bee removal service at your home or business, you should find out how they remove and handle the bees. Live bee removal companies use special techniques that remove the bees alive and well from the property without killing them. They do not use insecticides or other chemicals that could cause the bees harm.
At D-Tek Live Bee Removal, we use a specialized vacuum system that gently removes the bees and temporarily houses them until they are ready for rehoming. They are carefully transported from your property to our local apiary where they’re rehomed so that they can continue to prosper.
Will the bees return?
One of the greatest concerns many of our customers have is that the bees will return. They dislike the idea of spending money on a removal service, only to have another bee infestation shortly down the road. One of the first questions you should ask before hiring a bee removal company is what steps they take to prevent future bee infestations.
By choosing a company like D-Tek Live Bee Removal, you can feel assured that our technicians have taken measures to prevent bee infestations from returning to the same location. After the bee removal process, they use special sealants to cover up any holes, cracks or seams that could provide easy entrance for bees in the future. Our team also repairs any damage that was done by either the bees or during the removal process to ensure that bees cannot re-enter the area.
In addition, our technicians do a thorough job of removal. During the process, they ensure that every bee and all traces of honey and honeycomb are removed. Leftover honey or honeycomb contains odors that attract other bees. By taking measures to remove all traces of the previous infestation, you can ensure that bees will not return to the area.
What if the bees have damaged my home?
It is not uncommon that a large bee infestation can cause damage to the structure of your home. Large beehives are heavy in weight and can cause damage to beams and pipes. As the hive expands, there is a greater potential of weakening the structure or damaging walls.
When bee removal technicians arrive at your home, you want to be sure that your bee problem is eliminated, but you don’t want to have to call in a contractor to replace the damage. A great question to ask when choosing a bee removal company is if they are able to complete any necessary repairs. The removal process can be tricky. Sometimes, your technicians will need to remove pieces of your structure in order to access the full hive.
At D-Tek Live Bee Removal, we have extensive experience in construction and bee removal repairs. You can rest easy knowing that our technicians will not only successfully remove your hive, but they can also make any necessary repairs so the structure of your home or business is returned to its original condition.
