Live Honey Bee Colony
We remove and relocate honey
bees without the use of any chemicals or pesticides. We service south and central Texas and
will consider other areas as well.
We specialize in safe and organic honey bee
removal from just about any structure in most any location in south central
Texas. Often times a swarm of bees will nest in the wall of any type of building
or sheltered area they can find that makes them feel safe and out of the
weather, such as in a house, barn, garage, shed, or other out buildings. Other
times a swarm will land in a tree, a bush, the side of a wall or roof eve, the
overhang of a porch or even in an old tub or spare tire. If they can find a
small space to gain access and the scout bees discover enough space inside, the
swarm will follow and set up housekeeping.
We remove bees from areas where they are not wanted, or
may be presenting a danger to the area residents,
including residential and commercial properties. We offer several options based
on the circumstances and status of the colony. Once we determine if the bees are an
established colony with comb or a swarm in transit, and survey the location of the bees
and type of structure they are using, we consult with the customer to devise the
best plan of action.
Bees living in the hollow of old beautiful trees offer one type of challenge,
while a colony that has moved into the wall of a home or other structure require
an entirely different set of options. For the tree hollow dwelling bees, we have
a none invasive method called a "Trap Out". This system uses a "bait hive" to
"trap" the bees out of the hollow and into the hive we provide and set up next
to their exit hole. This can take from four to nine weeks based on the size of
the colony and other factors, including weather conditions and the season.
For bees that are living in a structure of some sort, we typically perform a
"Cut Out" style removal, which can be more invasive, but offers immediate
results. Typically one day service. We open the wall, floor, roof soffit,
etc, by what ever means necessary, then "cut out" the honeycomb, including
the bees and the queen. Many times we are able to remove the bees by gently
scooping them out by hand. When this is not an option, we use a specially designed "Bee Vacuum"
system connected to a bee hive. Sometimes both methods are employed.
Either way, we
are normally able to capture 99% of the bees alive and relocate the entire
colony to our safe and eco friendly bee yard where they will join other hives
and do what bees like to do . . . gather nectar, pollinate plants, make honey
and raise their young.
We service residential, commercial, industrial,
farm and ranch properties with 100% pesticide free, chemical free methods, all
over South, Texas. We even
work with the "Africanized" or sometimes called "Killer Bees". We
will also help with Wasps, Yellow Jackets,
Hornet, Mud / Dirt Daubers and more.
