There are several companies that now offer live bee removal however I have been getting calls from many people telling what they did when they came out and it seems there are a lot of scams in this field.
Some companies have been vacuuming the bees up in an effort to make it look as if they are safely removing them.
But the bees get killed in the vacuum!
The only way to safely vaccum bees is to baffle the vaccum so it has very little suction. The problem is that doing it this way would take all day to pick up all the bees and is not efficient in doing business.
To the uneducated homeowner it looks like they just sucked up the bees and are now going to put them in a new home but if you looked inside the vacuum you would see thousands of crushed bees.
I get lots of calls saying the bees have been there about three weeks.
Three weeks of work can results in a lot of comb in a wall but in most cases what you see in this picture is what you would have in 2-3 weeks.
Here is a removal done in Katy Texas.
The bees were under the floor.
We pulled out over three trash barrels of honey and comb from this house.
If the bees have been in the location for more than a few months then it is best to remove the honey comb to avoid future problems.
We have various ways of doing this without tearing up your house.
Bees in Houston have been a long standing problem with home owners and business’s.
This is one of the most common places that bees will infest in a house.
They like to get in between the floor joists where they have adequate apse to build a home and easy access to get out.
In this house which was brick we removed the bees but did not remove the comb.
The bees had been there for two weeks so there was little honey comb to remove and wasnt worth damaging the house to remove it.
The crack in the brick was sealed with new mortar and a new swarm of bees will not be able to get into this location in the future.
