Honey Bee


 Bee removal service in Illinois and Indiana. Trapper nick offers ( live only ) honey bee removal services for residential, commercial, and industrial locations. All bees removed are relocated to a safe environment to be treated and raised. I remove honey bees from walls, floors, trees, garages and more. I also handle trapping bee swarms, a honey bee swarm will be a large cluster of bees attached usually to a tree branch, mail box, or any number of things. A swarm looks worst than it is, at this state honey bees are docile, but frantic. Its is truly the definition of organized chaos. Most swarms will stay for a few hours until they find a forever home in your house :). Every ounce in a while swarm will start to make a exposed hive but not often around here.           

I will only take them alive and relocate them to a safer envoirment. There they will be treated for mites and fed protein and syrup untill the hive can be independent. Removing bees can be a troublesome task that can involve cutting into roofs, walls interior/ exterior, and sometime taking out some brick work. The idea besides saving honey bees is to get the comb out. The honey comb in itself can cause damage once unattended by the honey bees. The unattended comb will leak and cause staining on walls and ceiling. It will attract a verity of insects and mice and start to smell badly after awhile. You also start to see a abundance of wax moth and hive beetle larve crawling around, Yuck ! I do some repair work after the hive is out, but some you may have to find a contractor to repair the openings. If possible it is always better to leave the cavity open for a while to air out. A active bee hive can generate a lot of humidity and some of the surrounding material maybe damp. Honey bees keep the hive cool and air cirulating so the chance of mold does not occur but it can if the cavity is sealed without it being dry. The average time to get a hive out is around two days larger hive can take longer. Even if the hive does come out in one day a second day is usually needed to get the majority of bees left behind from the first day. Sometimes a few bees are left behind but will die off in time, time unknown. Ask about this if you have concerns.
