The best way to undertake live bee removal in a home or property infested with bee is to allow professionals to handle the job.Â Humanely dealing with the problem of bee infestation in a populated area is a delicate procedure, especially if the invading species is the Africanized bee.Â These bees are notorious for their propensity to attack at the slightest, or even without, provocation.Â And its territorial instinct is quite extensive, reaching to as far as one mile from its hive.
Some technology is also employed in the professional way of live bee removal.Â The more advanced bee control experts use miniature cameras to locate bee hives hidden in voids in home structures or buildings.Â With these cameras, there is no need to bore holes in a trial and error fashion to find the invading bees.Â Laser thermometers are also sometimes employed to detect the heat (95 ÂoF) emanating from beehives and pinpoint the location of the colony with reasonable accuracy.
· Negotiate. The more the bee removal expert has to do, the more he will charge. If there are repairs or clean up that you could do, this might save you some money. I give a discount when I don’t have to clean up a mess. For example, if I am tearing off siding to retrieve bees and the home owner is going to replace it anyway, then I don’t charge as much.
Another quirk with the Africanized bee is that it closely resembles the relatively more benign European honey bee.Â An ordinary lay person will have difficulty telling which is which, making bee removal complicated as there are undergoing efforts to control the spread of the Africanized bee in the American continent.

The last and most effective (and humane) way of handling a honey bee problem is to hire someone to remove the colony, preferably someone skilled in live bee removal. The bee expert will assure success on a number of different levels. Like previously mentioned, live bee removal includes the removal of live bees and the honeycomb. The beekeeper removes the comb filled with honey and/or bee larva and inserts it into the frames of a bee hive box that will be the new colony home. He will then scoop up the remaining bees or vacuum them up in a special bee vacuum and pour them over the brood or honey- comb. The bees will then be relocated to the care of a beekeeper. Even Africanized bees can be relocated and tamed. Though some counties and beekeeping associations across the US recommend killing Africanized hives, others like myself do not agree with the policy. There are different levels of hybridization of the African/European honey bees. Some are just a “moody” version of the regular honey bee, others are more aggressive. But try as they may, controlling the population is a losing battle and we might as well start to learn to live with the African honey bee. She will dominate in the end, at least in the warmer regions, which is their geographical limitation. Like any wild animal, they can be tamed via special breeding and they have good traits too; they are vigorous honey producers and are resistant to disease. Some of us are willing to work with African killer bees and so we hive them and re-home them.. Bee removal specialists are most often skilled in handy work and can remove and re-install structures after the bee removal is complete. If you are handy yourself or have a family member who can use basic power tools then you can save money by paying a professional bee remover to do only the “cut out” and the removal of the bee colony. You can button things up yourself when he is done. Ironically, live bee removal will many times be cheaper than a pest control spraying service. and you get the good blessing and good feeling of saving the bees. To me its a no-brainer. Most of the time live bee removers do not use chemicals (be sure to ask) and not having chemicals shot into your walls is another big plus. When its all done its not unusual for the bee re-locator to reward you with a nice chunk of incredible wild honey comb. Its only right. Now that you are armed with the best information, go make the right decision, and I hope you will consider saving the bees.
