How do I remove bees from the home?

A bee’s nest can last for many generations and can cause a large amount of damage to the structure where it is built.  Although there are options and information online about DIY methods for removing bee’s nests, you should think twice before carrying any of these out. Incorrectly carried out removal of a bee’s nest can have disastrous effects on the local ecosystem.

It is recommended to contact a bee removal specialist for this job. That’s where we come in, we can safely and efficiently remove bees from your premises and then rehome them to our own Apiary, or a local beekeeper if this is safer for the bees.

How do bees make honey?

Honey production begins with flowers producing nectar, a sugary liquid enticing insect pollinators. Honeybees ingest and store this nectar in their stomachs, where enzymes break down sugars and raise acidity to prevent bacterial growth. When the water content of the nectar drops to 18 percent, mold and bacteria can’t grow and the nectar becomes honey. The honey is then stored in wax chambers.

As the colony grows, honey is used to feed larvae, and during summer, workers tirelessly collect nectar for winter reserves. Notably, it takes 12 bees their entire lives to produce a teaspoon of honey.

Do honeybees sting?

A female worker bee will rarely sting. Its sting is only used as a last resort if it is cornered, or if its nest is threatened. The male drone bee and female Queen bee do not have a sting. Worker honeybees communicate through pheromones and will be able to sense if your pheromones are calm or carry fear which may cause the bee to sting if provoked. 

More on honeybees & honeycomb…

Introducing the fascinating life of a honeybee! From its vital job of pollination to its intricate social structure, these incredible creatures play a crucial role in our ecosystem. Did you know that a worker honeybee’s life expectancy is only about six weeks? During this time, they tirelessly collect nectar and pollen, tend to the hive, and support the queen bee in her responsibilities. Speaking of the queen, she is the heart of the hive, laying thousands of eggs each day in the height of the summer. The queen can live up to 4 years and in that time swarmed to make new colonies. The colony controls the queen, they feed her and tend to her and as long as she has a strong pheromone scent and laying well, the worker bees will keep her alive.

During the winter, the queen stops laying and the hive keep her warm and fed until the spring where she begins to lay again. The colony can be around 5000 strong living off the winter stores that was collected throughout the year. The colony fan to keep warm and so some may perish during the winter while keeping the queen alive.

Honeybees can build around 1 metre deep of comb a year which can hold around 10kg to 30kg per comb. There will many sections of comb, so an average colony may hold around 50kg of honey. Some of the comb will hold the honey, some the nectar and pollen and some for the brood. AKA baby bees! This is where the queen will be and this is where we look when we extract a colony. It is vital to find the queen and save her, without her the honeybees don’t move into the temporary hive box and saving the colony will be slim. Some extractions we have found the queen almost instant, sometimes it has taken a few hours. Once she is found and placed in a queen bee box, she can give off her scent and lure the colony to her. We can then get all the bees in the box and rehome them to our Apiary. In the middle of summer the colony can be around 30,000 to 60,000 strong so we want to save as many of these important hard working bees as possible.

Sometimes we even give the bees to a local beekeeper if we are extracting bees in Devon, Dorset or Wales. We have done honeybee extractions all over the country so instead of risking the bees lives being in transit for 2 hours or more, we source local beekeepers who are more than happy to meet us on site and take them away to be rehomed. We even like to offer the local community some of the honey we removed as sometimes we have removed over 100kg of comb and honey in one chimney! So if you love honey and want any, we would prefer to give it away than it go to waste. So please get in touch and we can arrange for you to collect it. This is pure live honey, not the jars you get in your local supermarket which around 90% of is man made, a synthetic version of the real stuff!
