4 Situations When You Need to Hire a Live Bee Removal Company 

Increased Bee Activity 

A surefire sign that you may have bee trouble on your property is an increase in honeybee activity. If you are beginning to notice bees buzzing around your property in higher numbers, there is a good chance that there is a hive somewhere in the vicinity. Try to locate where the bees are flying to and from, as this will be a good signal as to where they have built their hive. Be sure to keep your distance and avoid aggravating the bees. Buzzing bees who are foraging for food and water can become aggressive if provoked. 

Noticeable Bee Damage 

Bees can cause quite a bit of damage to your home or other structures such as sheds or garages. Large hives could have tens of thousands of bees. The honeycomb that makes up the hive can be quite heavy, causing distress on beams and pipes. As the hive expands, it can destroy drywall and insulation and other things within the walls of your home. As honey warms, it can seep into your walls, resulting in staining and deterioration. Large hives that are left to their own devices could cause significant damage that could make a property uninhabitable. 

If you are noticing any signs of potential bee damage, you should call a live bee removal company immediately. They can assess your situation, remove the bees and the hive and then perform the necessary repairs to bring your structure back to a safe condition. 

A Large Swarm 

In most cases, a honeybee swarm is nothing to worry about. Bees swarm because they are splitting a large colony into two in order to put both in a better position to survive and thrive. Swarming bees have one mission, and one mission only: to find a new home. A swarm may last for only a few hours or a few days, so in most cases ignoring it is the best solution. However, there are some cases where a large swarm should be removed by professionals. If the bees have decided to swarm in an inconvenient or unsafe location near a business, school or home, the bees should be safely removed by professionals. 

Bee Proofing 

Another reason to call a live bee removal company is to bee proof your home or property. People who have had an infestation know how frustrating it can be. Bee proofing services can help prevent future infestations by sealing up holes, cracks and seams where bees can typically make entrance into a structure. A professional technician can come to your property and assess areas that might be vulnerable to bees. At D-Tek Live Bee Removal, we use non-toxic substances that are safe for bees and your family to seal these entrance points.
