LIVE BEE REMOVAL

FIND A SWARM?
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW THEN CALL RIGHT AWAY.
GOT A HONEY BEE COLONY ON YOUR PROPERTY? I CAN HELP.

A swarm of bees is an amazing sight. Thousands of bees leave the original colony with their queen, rise into the air and then collect in a single location. This cluster of bees will stay where they landed for several hours to several days. The bees are not at all aggressive when swarming and will not bother you. Scouts fly out from the cluster searching for a permanent residence in a hollow tree or any hollow space.
Sometimes a colony will take up residence in old buildings, in porches, garages or even your home. Once established it is important to remove the bees and the comb and seal the building to prevent further colonies from setting up in the same spot.

 

I will carefully remove bee swarms or established honey bee colonies, safely relocating the bees to my beautiful location in the Lanark Highlands.
 

If you have a swarm land near you:

 

  1. Do not call an exterminator! Honey bees can be safely removed from your property live, without using toxic chemicals

  2. Do not spray the bees with anything - We want to save the bees!

  3. Let me know exactly where the bees are, how high the cluster is and where it is. I will try to get there and if I can't make it will try to locate someone who can!

  4. If no one can make it, don't worry. Don't bother the bees and they will move on in a few days.

 

If you have an established colony:

 

  1. Make sure what you have are honey bees, not wasps or hornets.

  2. Take photos of the site and the bees if you can so I can assess the job

  3. Honey bees are small and furry with gold or brown stripes, yellow jackets are bright yellow and shiny.
