SWARM REMOVAL

Swarming is what honey bees will do to reproduce their colonies. Normally, the old queen and approximately half the workers leave the first nest in search of a new and better home. In many cases, this happens in spring, but bees can swarm at any other time of the year depending on weather conditions. The process starts when specialized worker bees known as “scouts” start canvassing surrounding territory for potential new nests.

The need to remove or manage swarms varies depending on location and the bees’ behavior. Call BEE FREE immediately at (903)-744-5060 if they seem to be establishing a colony in or around your home.

The picture on the left is a “Swarm”. A swarm is a group of bees that are in between homes. The picture below is an “Open Hive”. An open hive is an established colony with exposed honeycomb. The bees are very protective when they have established honeycomb that’s exposed.

CUT OUTS

A beehive is an established colony with honeycomb that is usually within a structure of some sort. Being enclosed allows the bees and their honeycomb to be protected from predators.  Honeycomb is the mecca of the colony as it allows them to store food and produce new bees.

The bees are very protective when they have established honeycomb since it is resource rich. Usually, the hive will not be exposed and only a few bees will be seen entering and exiting the nest (seen below).

The bees within the hive work as a team to develop the nest, collect pollen, and produce enough food to last them through the winter. Although bees do not hibernate, they will become inactive during the colder months and rely on the food produced during the spring and summer.

Popular areas for hives to nest on properties include trees, irrigation boxes, roof eaves, wall voids, or any cracks/crevices. It is important to have the nest removed by a bee removal professional to avoid injury from stings – bees will become aggressive if they feel threatened.

Cut outs can take anywhere from a couple hours to a few days to perform depending on the complexity of the removal. If you feel you have bees in your home call BEE FREE now at (903)-744-5060 and have one of our removal specialist come out, evaluate your bee problem and provide you with a cost effective solution to remove your bees.

TRAP OUTS

Trapping is a method used when physically creating an opening in the structure is not feasible, such as a brick or stone structures. The process involves creating a conical shaped one-way trap over the main entrance and blocking off any secondary entrances. This one-way cone allows the bees to leave freely, but not re-enter the structure. When the field bees leave the nest to forage, they are prevented from returning with nectar and pollen for the colony. With no food incoming to the colony, and field bees steadily being removed, the colony starts to dwindle. A trap hive is placed near the conical trap and is baited with a queen bee. As the returning bees can not get back to the colony, they start to gather in and around the trap hive. Within a few days, the bees that have accumulated in the trap hive, accept the trap queen and establish a new colony in the trap hive. After a few weeks, the trap hive begins to thrive, and the original colony becomes very weak. At this point, the conical trap is removed. This allows bees from the trap hive to enter and steal any remaining nectar or honey from the weaker colony.

Once the trap hive removes the remaining nectar and honey, the entrance can be sealed. The benefits of this method are that there is minimal damage to the structure (minor stapling of funnel, caulking, and screws) and excess honey and nectar is removed. The drawback is that it can take up to 12 weeks for completion and the wax comb is left.

PRICING

Every bee removal is unique and every colony is different with different comb structures in varying locations. The honey bees will build comb in different ways making it a challenge to figure out where the bees are and how to get to them. Prices are based on the size of the colony, the amount of time the bees have been living there and how difficult it is to access the bees for removal.

Remove Bees From Structure

  • Bee Free will determine the exact location of the colony in the wall, ceiling, floor, overhang, or other possible voids which may be suitable for a honey bee colony.
  • Bee Free will gain access to the colony/void by cutting through or removing the walls, ceiling, sheet rock, siding, or other building materials.
  • Bee Free will remove the bees, honeycomb, honey, and wax from the void.
  • Bee Free will then seal the void to help prevent future honey bee swarms from establishing a new colony in the same location.

Tree Removals/Trap Outs & Forced Absconds

A Forced Abscond or Trap Out has to be completed when the bees have setup their colony in a structure that cannot, or should not, be cut open. This is typically the case when their hive is located inside a living tree, or a stone wall. The bees are forced out, and the cavity is sealed, but the comb remains inside the cavity.
