Why call a beekeeper to remove Honey Bees?
Exterminators will not kill honey bees and for good reason. Honey bees need human help to protect them. Honey bee losses are 30-50% per year, besides the fact that honey bees are important to human survival. Once a honey bee colony takes residents they will build honey comb and begin filling it with honey. If comb and honey is left in the structure other insects will be drawn to the sweet honey and will infest your home. The comb and honey need to be removed for this not to occur.
We provide honey bee removal. We will open your you structure, get to the hive and remove the entire comb and bees. Getting to the hive can be a challenge, many times we’ll need to cut Sheetrock, siding, trees, to expose and remove the hive and bees safely. Once we’are done you’ll need to call a handyman for the repairs. We do our best to keep damage to a minimum.
Depending on how extensive the removal is that will determine the price. A topical bee removal runs approximately $300. larger and more difficult hives will range from $800 – $1300+
Note: Swarm bee removals are FREE.
