Bee Removal

Bee Removal

Not all bee removal problems are the same. Our highly trained technicians can tell what phase of the bee infestation cycle you are in using several methods. One of these methods includes observing the flight pattern of the bees. The flight pattern of the bees tells us a lot about whether or not honeycomb is present.

  1. If the bees are flying around in random patterns as if they are searching for something, there most likely is no honeycomb present. The bees are scouting for a good location to bring the colony.
  2. If, however, the bees are darting in and out of a gap or opening of a structure like a busy airport or freeway, there is a good chance there is honeycomb present. As a result, there is a high chance infestation has already occurred.

Below is a breakdown of the cycle of infestation. Read below to see in which phase your bee problem may be.

Bee Infestation Cycle

1
A beehive contains a single queen and can grow to over 50,000 bees. Once a new queen bee is born in the colony, the old queen will fly away taking half the colony with her.

A bee swarm will usually stay in one place until a new location to build a hive is found by scout bees (usually 1-3 days). For that reason, 90% of the time, the swarm leaves within 1 – 3 days.

Scout bees will spend up to 3 days looking for a new location. They are looking for a place that is protected from the elements and predators. Bees favorite places to build a hive.

Once a new location has been chosen, the scout bees bring the swarm to their new home to build honeycomb. Finally, the whole process repeats itself. As a result, some hives can thrive for years.
