Honey Bee Nest Removal in Sheffield
Honey bees in Sheffield (and the rest of the UK) are classified as what are called “domesticated animals”. As such an individual approach is required when dealing with honey bee nest removals.
Return them to Local Beekeepers
Honey bees “setting up shop” on your property may belong to a local beekeeper in the area. It’s not unusual for certain circumstances to cause bees to “relocate” on their own. When such a circumstance arises, we make a reasonable faith effort to find the rightful owner. In some cases, they are happy to come and collect and remove their bees and associated honey bee nest for you.
Relocate to a Safe Area
In other cases where an owner cannot be found, or when wild honey bees have been nesting on your property, our team will take steps to safely “re-home” the honey bee nest to an area where they can thrive away from human disturbance.
Insecticide Treatments (last resort)
As a last resort, we will employ residue insecticide treatments approved for honey bee populations. After insecticide treatment, we remove the bees nest and associated honeycombs or block the entrance to prevent re-entry and to prevent random foraging bees from taking back insecticide to other local nests.
What is the Average Cost of Bee Removal?
The real cost to remove bees and bee nests will vary greatly depending on many factors specific to your unique situation. A previous article we wrote on the charges for pest control services may be of interest to you.
Below we’ve detailed some of the variables that can have a large impact on the average cost of bee removal on your property or in your home or business.
1. Type of Bee
• Carpenter Bees
Each type of bee has its unique characteristics, from aggressiveness, to how they nest, meaning each species requires an individualised approach tailored to that particular species of bee.
2. Problems / Issues Present
The specific issues caused by your bee infestation may require different strategies and scope of work to be done to remedy the situation. For example, if left too long, bees can even cause structural damage to homes or buildings, requiring additional work to resolve.
3. Hive Location and Reaction
The location and size of the hive or nest are dependent in large part on the species of bee that you’re dealing with. Carpenter bees, for example, often target exterior wooden structures such as window frames, porches and sheds. Bumblebees often enjoy crawl spaces beneath your home and in your yard. Whereas honeybees usually prefer open areas or structures where they can build their hive, and often get found in walls, chimneys and attics.
The location of the hive largely dictates how difficult (or easy) it may be to remove or eradicate the bees from the premises.
Likewise, tight indoor spaces often result in swarms and aggression during removal, thus increasing the risk and safety precautions that need to be taken. All of which can impact cost.
4. Labor, Materials and Repair Costs
The strategy employed may involve different amounts of labour and materials necessary for the effective and safe removal of bees from your property, as well as adherence to any local requirements or regulations.
For example, bees located inside of interior walls may require us to open up the wall to remove the infestation and hive. This will need additional labour and materials to repair the wall to its former state once the bees are removed.
Why You Need to Deal with your Bee Situation Immediately
Bees are a testament to the wonder of nature, helping our local Sheffield ecosystem flourish. However, when they take up residence where they don’t belong, they can post a serious health risk to both humans and animals alike, and can even result in serious damage to property.
