It is important to follow these steps for the safety of your property and the people living there. The five steps we recommend taking for beehive removal are:

  1. Give Space – Once you realize you have a bee problem, it is important to give the bees and their hive space. You don’t want to upset them or make them feel threatened. It is when they feel threatened that they will usually sting. Remember to keep pets away from the area and especially anyone who is allergic to bees.

Steps You Should Take for a Beehive Removal

  1. Determine Location – If you cannot easily see the beehive, then pay particular attention to where the bees enter or exit your home, shed, or yard. Do not attempt to block the bees from entering as this may cause them to enter from a different way and cause the bees to spread out farther into your home or property.
  2. Don’t Spray Insecticides – It may be tempting to try to remove the bees by trapping them or using insecticides. We strongly recommend avoiding this. Insecticides are harmful and often banned for use on bees.
  3. Call a Professional – This is the most important step as this is how you are going to successfully remove your bee problem. Professional beehive removal is the best way to fully and safely remove a beehive.
  4. Repair Damage – Once the professional has removed the beehive and all the bees, it is time to assess and repair any damage caused by the bees.
