Are you a San Diego County resident who is looking for FREE bee removal? If so, we have some good news and some bad news.
The good news? You’ve come to the right place for your San Diego live bee removal needs. The bad news? Bee removal isn’t and shouldn’t be free.
Why Shouldn’t Bee Removal Be Free?
We get asked this question all the time. If there are so many beekeepers and conservationists who want bees, why do I have to pay to have them removed from my property? Won’t they take the swarm or hive away for free?
This is a valid question. With the decline in bee populations caused by colony collapse disorder, many people and organizations are making great efforts to protect honey bees. Many local beekeepers would love to have the bees for their own hives.
We have to warn you – don’t let inexperienced or hobbyist beekeepers remove your bees, even if the price is right.
Removing bees from a property or structure is not a simple task. In fact, it can be quite dangerous and difficult to do properly. Without the expertise of a professional and the proper equipment, a free bee removal service can (and probably will) end up costing you much more money in the long run.
Where FREE Bee Removal Doesn’t Stack Up
You’ve probably heard the old adage, “You get what you pay for.” This definitely applies to bee removal. Bee removal is best left to the experts, so you know that it’s done correctly, safely and humanely. Amateur beekeepers or inexperienced bee removal companies make the same common mistakes that result in your free service costing you more than if you had hired a professional right from the start.
If bees have decided to make their home in your home, you may have more than a bee problem on your hands. Bees will often build their nests in walls, chimneys and roofs or in other structures like garages and sheds. Bee removal technicians need to be skilled at bee repairs to fix any structural damage that may occur.
A quality technician will do what it takes to ensure that all of the bees and honeycomb are removed, and then be able to repair any structure damage, returning your property to its original condition.
Bad Bee Proofing
Bee proofing your property can be effective when done properly. However, many rookie beekeepers are not familiar with the most effective techniques. Experts like those at D-Tek Live Bee Removal know how to make sure that bees won’t reenter the structure and rebuild their home. They properly seal the structure so you won’t have any issues in the future.
Hobbyist beekeepers often neglect to remove all of the honeycomb. Why is this a problem? Honeycomb will attract pests like rodents and cockroaches. It will also draw the attention of other colonies of bees looking for a new home, resulting in another bee situation in the future.
Honey in the honeycomb can also begin to decay, leaving a bad smell that can permeate through your walls. Many homes experience honey that seeps through the wall, leaving them with a huge home repair bill.
