Bee removal is the process of removing bees from a location. Professional services exist for the purpose. The Goal is to remove the queen, the honey, and any pheromone producers. If not done correctly, the remaining bees, or new bees will return.

Proper bee removal wiII usually require opening the cavity in which the bees are entering the building whether it is a concrete block wall, a barrel tile roof, the bathroom ceiling, the play set floor, or the roof extension soffit on the property. 

Africanized honey bees are a more temperamental relative of the common garden honey bee, known as the European honey bee. They have sometimes been called "killer bees" and they certainly are not that, but they will defend their hive more rapidly than European honey bees, and usually sting in greater numbers. Children, pets, elderly persons, and adults have died from serious, and continuous stings. If you are stung, or encounter a hive:

  • Remove stingers as soon as possible. Scrape stingers off the skin with a fingernail or credit card. Do not use fingers or tweezers - this forces toxins into the victim's body
  • If you have been stung more than 15 times, or are having symptoms other than swelling and local pain, get medical attention immediately.
  • Be careful not to tie or pen animals near honey bee hives. Even the mild-mannered European honey bee has been known to attack animals tied near its hives
  • If your animals or pets are being stung, try to release them without endangering yourself
