Bee Removal in Loughton

WHY ARE BEES IMPORTANT?

Bees are an essential part of our ecosystem and supply a vital role in pollinating plant life. Critically, in the absence of bees, a large number of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy for food simply would be wiped from the face of the planet. In addition to being important for plant life, they also produce honey, beeswax, and other products that have a wide range of uses. Honey, for example, is a natural sweetener that can often be used in cooking and baking, while beeswax is used in cosmetics, candles, and other products.

Although we’re painfully aware of their importance, bee numbers the world over are falling. Issues such as habitat loss, climate change, and pesticide use have all had an impact on the decline of bee populations. Tracker Pest Control ensure that bee hives are removed safely and effectively, and relocated to either a safer area where they won’t bother anyone, or are passed on to local beekeepers.

DO BEES MAKE HIVES IN HOUSES?

Bees are likely to create hives in several areas of a home, namely loft spaces, wall cavities, chimneys and roofing. These areas provide shelter and protection from the elements, meaning they are ideal locations for bees to build their hives.

If you notice bees entering or exiting your home through small gaps or holes, it’s likely that they have created a hive inside. It’s important to address a bee infestation as soon as possible, as bees sometimes become aggressive when they feel threatened or their hive is disturbed.

Attempting to remove a hive without a specialist can be hazardous, as bees can swarm and sting in vast numbers. For this reason it’s crucial to contact a professional such as Tracker Pest Control to safely remove the hive and relocate the bees. Professional bee removal companies have the knowledge and experience to safely remove and relocate bees and their hives, reducing the likelihood of injuring you or your family. By acting quickly to remove a bee infestation, you can protect your home and help to preserve bee populations for future generations.

CAN BEES DAMAGE MY HOME?

Although bees themselves are not likely to cause direct damage to your property, the hives they build are known to. Bees usually build their hives in sheltered areas that are dry and protected from the weather, such as lofts, walls, and roofing eaves. After a period, the weight of the hive can cause structural damage to your home, especially if the hive is left untreated.

If you find evidence that bees have created a hive on your property, it’s important to contact a professional bee removal company to safely remove the hive and relocate the bees. By taking swift action to remove a bee infestation, you can protect your property and prevent further damage from occurring.

It is important that you know the following in regards to our services:

Even if nest entrances and combs are sealed after we are finished, simply spraying or smoke bombing the honeybees will not resolve the problem. These methods are ineffective as it only has a negative impact on honeybees doing nothing but antagonise them and it leaves behind the combs. Spraying the bees will make them more aggressive and they will be more likely to sting.

Abandoned honeycombs are ideal environments for moth and mite infestations. If left for long enough they can also start to smell and melt causing lasting or permanent damage to the property. Honey Bee colonies are known to store up to 300kg of honey and 80,000 worker bees.

Reasons for relocating honey bees from void spaces specifically

There is a major disease risk to local healthy honey bee colonies when leaving combs in void spaces. American and European Foul Broad are two of the main diseases known to be passed on, along with a slew of others that can impact other healthy colonies locally. In short, this means it is better for the whole species to have them removes alive and relocated to a professional beekeeper where they can be monitored and treated appropriately.
