While we value honeybees as one of the most important parts of the world’s ecosystem, there are times where bee swarms and hives can pose a public health risk and need to be removed and/or exterminated. We like it when beekeepers are able to relocate a hive, but that isn’t always possible, and in those instances, you should call the experts here at A-Agents. We’ve removed hives as large as 500lbs, hives from under shipping containers, hives in old-growth trees, hives in attics, and hives in sprinkler boxes.
If you think you have bees, call the experts here at A-Agents.
The first step to removing and/or exterminating a beehive is to find it’s location, which sometimes, can prove to be quite difficult depending on the size of the hive. After we’ve located the colony, our next goal is to find all the entrances and exits the beehive’s workers use, to make sure that once we start treating the hive, the bees don’t swarm out in an unexpected area like your living room.
When bees are nesting in wall voids, it is sometimes necessary to drill small holes into the wall, and using a small straw-like tip on an expanding aerosal pesticide, inject that aerosal into the wall void. If the hive is large enough, the wall itself may have to be taken down in order to properly remove all the bees and honeycomb material.
