Bee Removal in Woodford

WHY ARE BEES IMPORTANT?

Bees are an integral cog of our ecosystem and supply a vital role in pollinating plants. In the absence of bees, a large portion of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy for food simply would not exist. Alongside their role in keeping our food supply in check, they also produce honey, beeswax, and other natural products that have a wide range of uses. Honey, for example, is a natural sweetener that is often 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 around the world are reducing. Issues such as habitat loss, climate change, and pesticide use have all contributed to the decline of bee populations. Tracker Pest Control make certain that bee hives are removed carefully and professionally, and rehomed to either a safer area where they won’t bother anyone, or are passed on to local beekeepers.

WHERE DO BEES MAKE HIVES?

Bees can create hives in many places in a home, specifically loft spaces, wall cavities, chimneys and roofing. These areas provide shelter and protection from the weather, meaning they are ideal locations for bees to build their hives.

Should you witness bees entering or exiting your home through small gaps or holes, you may find that they have created a hive inside. It’s vital to address a bee infestation as quickly as possible, as bees can become aggressive when threatened or their hive is disturbed.

An attempt to remove a hive without a professional can be hazardous, as bees can swarm and sting in huge numbers. For this reason it’s vital 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, removing 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 unlikely to cause direct damage to your property, the hives they create can. Bees usually build their hives in sheltered areas that are dry and protected from the weather, such as lofts, walls, and the eaves of the roof. Given time, the weight of the hive can cause structural damage to your home, particularly if the hive is left untreated.

If you think that bees have moved in to your property, it’s crucial to speak with a professional bee removal company to safely remove the hive and relocate the bees. By acting quickly to remove a bee infestation, you can protect your property and prevent further damage from occurring.

We carefully remove the hive by hand from walls or roof areas, and thoroughly inspect the area to be certain that no honey residue or hive structure is left behind. We then relocate the bees by either donating them to local beekeepers to give them a place to live where they can thrive or move them to a safer area.  We ensure that bees are removed carefully and ethically and you can rest assured we are fully insured to carry out all aspects of working with bees.

Whether you are a company or an individual, not following your legal obligations can lead to a £25,000 fine.

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.
