Guaranteed Honey Bee Removal

Our honeybee removal procedures are guaranteed not to fail! It is physically impossible for another honey bee colony to come back and build new honeycomb in the same area we have removed a colony from. The procedure used by most pest control companies is to drill holes in the wall and spray or dust the honeybees with pesticides in an attempt to kill all the bees in the colony. This is a very difficult task and is rarely successful! If the hive is not removed, the bees will return! I have been hired on several jobs to come in behind pest control companies and remove (cutout) hives and honey where they have been trying to kill the honey bees for over two years! I can typically have the honeybee hive removed and the colony relocated alive in just a few hours with a guarantee that it is impossible for them to return.

Live Honey Bee Removal Service in Louisiana

We provide Live Humane Eco-friendly Honeybee Removal for Louisiana and we are based in the Shreveport Bossier City Metropolitan Area.

Over the last two decades, there has been a reduction in the number of honey bees’ colonies in the world and this is not good for man as a lot of plants and animals alike need the pollination of these honeybees in their reproduction process. This reduction can be attributed to the recent methods used in honey bee removal from unwanted places. It is true that their pollination is needed but it doesn’t mean we want them in our Louisina houses. There are a number of removal methods but live removal is the best way out as it is a humane honey bee removal approach, which is simply the relocation of honey bees from an unwanted location to our Bossier City apiary.

It is humane in the sense that the honey bees are not actually hurt or killed but just removed, using our HoneyBee Vac, from their present location to another. Humans need honey bees, so, killing them or applying chemicals to eradicate them is not ideal. Removing and relocating honey bee colonies is an important step towards preserving the remaining honey bees in the world. With every humane honey bee removal done, we preserve the number of honeybees needed for pollination of plants and survival of animals.

Now the pertinent question remains “How do I get rid of honey bees”? As earlier mentioned the humane honeybee removal method is one that requires time and technical know-how of the process. There are a number of steps to follow so as to achieve this. First, the location of the bee hive needs to be known. It is not enough to just know where the honey bees are coming from or where they are gathered, you need to know the exact location of their nest. Next, try and gain access to the honey bees’ nest. There is need for a protective gear at this point because the bees would surely attack you for intruding into their privacy.

The honey bees are then collected into a honeybee vacuum (a device used for collecting honey bees) where they would remain until a new home is made for them at our Bossier City apiary. It is important to ensure that the Queen bee is not killed in this process; else, the new colony would be neglected by the bees. The honey comb is then collected and preserved so it can be placed in their new home when it is ready. To ensure they don’t return to this location, a unique strategy in honey bee removal, it is important that the place be cleaned and repaired if need be, to make it inaccessible to them. A new location is then selected where their nest and honey comb are placed. Finally, the bees are released from the honey bee vacuum into their new location.

Most honey bees removed from homes and unwanted locations are usually taken to our Bossier City apiary where they are safe from harm, and do not pose a threat to anyone. Yes, it is easier to kill off these bees than to remove them, but remember that the right thing to do is not always the easiest. If they are removed by harsh honey bee removal methods, the world would be at a risk of sending them into extinction. This simple process has answered the general question of “How do I get rid of honey bees”?

How Do I Get Rid Of Honey Bee Swarms?

Honeybee swarms or a ball of bees are no problem for us to remove and relocate. Wildlife Abatement can safely perform Honey Bee Swarm Removal from a car, remove swarms from a truck, tree, bush, fire hydrant or any structure or object with ease.

Having a large number of bees swarming around your house or garden in the Shreveport Bossier City area can be very disturbing especially if the bee hive is just within your environment. This swarm of bees is not aggressive in their state and would not sting or attack anyone unless they are being stimulated to do so in one way or the other. Another reason that could cause a swarm of honey bees to attack is if they are out of food. Swarming is the honey bees’ method of expanding its colony; this is done when the size of the colony is now too small for all the bees. In this method, the old queen bee leaves her present home to relocate to somewhere else more comfortable for her. Scouts are first sent out to find new nesting sites for the colony. When the new site is found, a swarm of bees move together through the air to settle down in their new home, which may be disturbing for us. But their removal is not as difficult as the swarm of bees make it look.

Honeybees will typically swarm when the size of the hive is too small to support its population. The colony will make a new queen and some of the honeybees will leave with the new queen (this is the swarm) to look for a new place to live. One would think that they would find the new location before they left the old hive but that isn’t what happens. The bees will swarm and hang out on an object which may be the side of a house, a tree limb, a car, truck or really just about anything for a few days. When the new location is found, the bees will communicate this information and off the swarm goes to set up housekeeping. In many cases the temporary location isn’t suitable for us Humans so that is where we come in to perform a Honey Bee Swarm Removal to a more hospitable location and out of harms way.

Successful honey bee swarm removal requires adequate knowledge of the current disposition of the honey bee swarm. Honey bees that are carrying honey from their old hive are usually less defensive, meaning they don’t get to attack anybody without stimulation. But, if they were to be guarding broods at their old hives then removing them would be cumbersome as they would be ready to attack at the slightest provocation. This removal also depends on the location where the swarm is located because swarms that are on the move don’t seem to be a concern to anybody. The question is “How do I get rid of honey bee swarms?

I was called out to remove this swarm of honeybees off a lake house on a Friday afternoon. I had all the proper honeybee relocation equipment on my truck and had the swarm safe in their new hive body in just a few minutes. The customer was happy she got to start her weekend on time and so were the honeybees!

Why Not Just Hire a Honey Bee Exterminator

With all of the problems honey bees are currently facing including colony collapse disorder, varroa mites, small hive beetles and American chalk brood, why would we want to further risk the health of our honeybee population by killing them with pesticides when there is a more effective, safer and environmentally friendly way to take care of the problem.

What happens If you do kill the bees with spray insecticides or poisons and do not remove the dead bees and the hive? Now you have a wall full of decomposing bees and wax and honey that is soaked in poison.

Exterminators seldom remove the bee hive and honey in the wall, roof, eve or structure, which lead to additional problems with rodents, bugs, and at times staining honeycomb and structural damage.

It is still unfortunately common practice for some pesticide companies to apply insecticides in the form of sprays and dusts to kill the honeybees in the walls when a customer is adamant about having the honey bees killed. It is nothing but the wrong thing to do; if the material is left inside the wall, more honeybees will return to that same area.
