Bee Hive RemovalWhen you call, we will ask you a few questions to help evaluate your unique situation. Please review the following questions.

• Are the bees inside something?
• How many bees can you see?
• How big is the cluster, as big as a football?
• Can you see any honeycombs?
• How long has it been there, weeks or months?
• How high off the ground is it?
• How easy is it to get to?

If the bees are actually already inside something, it might be your roof, a wall, or something like a trash can or sprinkler control box. This means that they have already moved beyond the swarming stage and removing them is a very different, more difficult process. When people think they have a bee swarm problem because they've seen a few bees going in and out of a hole, they believe there's a bee hive inside. Sometimes they're right, but often they're wrong.

When bees swarm they leave their hive, often as many as 20,000 individuals, and hang somewhere temporarily. You'll see a cluster of bees usually about the size of a football, this is just bees hanging onto each other, there's no 'hive' yet. This is a large honeybee swarm which decided to alight in a tree in a backyard. At this stage there are 'scout bees' out searching for a new permanent location. If your bee problem is that you see 10 or 20 bees flying to a hole, crawling in, coming out and wandering around you almost certainly do not need a bee removal, YET!

These bees are 'just looking' they inspect new locations and fly back to the main swarm, which is somewhere nearby, to report. Once enough scout bees have decided on a new place, they all take off and fly there, entering the cavity through a hole which needs to be no bigger that 3/8" diameter.

DavidWithin 15 to 20 minutes all 20,000 bees will be inside and work will have started on building their honeycombs. You can usually tell if you have a colony of bees inside such a place. Watch the entrance carefully, especially during the warmest part of the day. If you see a continuous stream of bees flying backwards and forwards to the hole, looking very industrious, when they land they go straight inside, there's no time for wandering around 'just looking'. If you see something like this you probably do have a bee hive problem.

You may even see some workers with pollen on their legs entering the hole. This all starts to happen within an hour or so of the swarm actually moving in, they have lots of work to do building a hive, collecting nectar to fuel their wax manufacture and pollen to feed the new young.

I usually think of it like someone looking at houses, literally 'house hunting', they wander up the door, look at the outside, go in, come out, look around some more at the neighborhood then leave. This is the scouting phase, no decision has been made they're still considering all the different locations. Once the 'house' has been chosen, the furniture is moved in, boxes are carried in, perhaps there's builders doing some renovations. There is a real 'hive' of industry if you'll pardon the pun. Once this happens you do have a bee swarm problem and you should call bee removal expert immediately, the quicker you consult someone the better.

Once they have reached this stage they're here to stay and you have a bee swarm problem, people often tell me they noticed them a couple of months ago and thought they would leave, THEY WON'T!

If the bees are still at the swarm stage, perhaps hanging in a tree, I should warn you that although the swarm will almost certainly leave if it's left alone, that may be a big mistake! If the swarm moves from the tree into the roof of your house, into the cavity of your wall, or under your shed, it is much more difficult to remove and is usually a good deal more expensive.

Don't wait too long to see what will happen. Some people wait to see if the bees will move. The bees almost certainly WILL MOVE, the question is; will they move into your attic? If you think bees in your attic is something you want to avoid, have the swarm removed NOW! A swarm in a tree is not really a problem, an established colony in your house is a big problem!

If you don't want to co-exist with a bee hive, DON'T WAIT, call A Bee Man as soon as possible!
