Bee Removal FAQ's
Do you have questions about bee hives and removing hives from your property? Here are the FAQ's to help you understand.
I have a hive inside of my cavity wall. If I sealed the hole where the bees are coming in from, will that stop the bees?
No, Bees are very smart insects & hard laborers. You will stop the bees that are inside the cavity wall temporarily, but the worker bees that are out pollinating will come back and find a way to get back inside the cavity wall.
If I don’t want to open up my cavity roof, will it be easier to just call a company to exterminate the bees & seal the hole?
Exterminating the bees to stop the beehive is the last thing you want to do. By doing this, it will bring bigger problems, the beehive (honeycomb) will lose its strength & melt down inside the cavity area of your house/business, it will attract other honey bees, ants, rats & other pests.
What can cause the bees to attack me?
Any type of noise, vibration or if it is an old colony, and getting too close to the hive, they will attack.
Will my dog be OK if he/she gets stung by a bee?
Unless your dog is allergic to bee stings, he/she should be fine.
Why did the swarm of bees choose to establish a beehive in my house?
The bee scouts are always looking for the perfect location to establish their hive that is hollow, humid, & has the perfect temperature. This helps them protect their home from the elements.
Why am I finding dead bees inside of my home, near the window area?
This seems to happen a lot when bees are scouting or a new swarm of bees have moved into the structure of your house. Bees are guided by the sun when bees are collecting pollen and nectar or finding their way back to their hive. Being inside the structure of your home, any light will attract them them, from light fixtures to the window light. Immediately call your reliable company Bee Green Natural Bee Removal, before the swarm becomes a hive.
What can I do in case I get stung by a bee?
Immediately get away from the bee/bees. Bees release a scent to alert the colony when they feel they are threatened. If you are still around when other bees get there, they will attack.
Once you are in a safe area, carefully remove the stinger without squeezing the stinger sac. The longer the stinger remains in your body, the more severe the reaction can be.
Can a dead bee cause any harm?
Yes! Honeybees can still sting you if you touch or step on their stinger & cause the same reaction. We recommend you carefully pick it up with a dust pan or cardboard, especially when children around.
Where should I be most concerned about, if a new swarm of bees do move in the structure of my home?
Mainly we remove most of swarms/bee hives from areas such as chimneys, stucco walls, roofs, eave areas, sheds, and trees.
How long can a bee live?
