Bee Nest Removal

Nobody wants bees hanging around their garden, so our pest controllers and beekeepers work efficiently on each job to remove bee nests from your property.

Our local company offers bee nest removal across Portsmouth, Southampton, and surrounding Hampshire, UK. 

Many bee species will view you as a threat during the physical removal of nests, posing a serious risk to you and those around you. Our removal methods meet industry standards, offering harmless means of pest control and bee removal.

As a business, we love bees and view them as the protected species they are. We eradicate the risk of them returning and prioritise your health.


Honey Bee swarm removal

Honey bees naturally swarm when their hive reaches capacity. Half of the bees stay with the queen and flee the negs, with the rest staying to lay more eggs with a new queen. The honey bees will relocate over the summer months of July-August when you are likely to identify swarms around your building. 

Swarms can collect on bushes, houses, bins, cars, or the ground. Although they will typically not be aggressive, contacting a professional is the best way to deal with them. Our employees can promptly assess the problem, and our knowledgeable beekeepers will ensure they are safely removed from your property.


Differences between bee swarming and wasp nests

Wasps' nests can be identified by their comb ball shape, typically made from chewed and pulped wood. Wasps pose a threat to children, pets and families, so you must contact us if you spot one in your home.

You will commonly spot a wasp nest in the following spaces:

  • Lofts
  • Roof Overhangs
  • Sheds
  • Garages
  • Dark Spaces and walls

The most significant difference between bumblebees and wasps is their diets. Bees, generally, are harmless and come to our gardens for flowers and pollen. Wasps, on the other hand, are much worse as they are carnivorous. They feed on flies, aphids and invertebrates in our gardens. Wasps are less friendly and are much more likely to sting you. 

Similar to wasps, hornets are incredibly dangerous to you. They are the largest species of wasps and should be handled with care.

Wasp nest removal is hazardous and should not be attempted by someone not qualified and prepared. Contact our team via our phone number if you believe you have a wasp nest.

Bee Removal Process

Our removal pest control services follow a strict process, ensuring an efficient result. The last thing you want to do is anger the colony or leave the potential for eggs in the future. 

Initially, if you suspect a bee nest at your property, you shouldn't touch it or attempt to remove it yourself. Tampering with a nest can result in stings and an angered infestation, so always contact our business when you are unsure.

Our professionals will inspect your property, identifying worse affected areas to be treated. At this point, we don't hesitate to act but must determine the best method to implement. We must access the nest and how they affect your property and life.

Our third step is to treat the bee pest control issue, working safely to remove the nest from your property. We shall decide on the best relocation method for your situation.

The final step (and most important) is to educate you on aftercare and how to prevent them from coming back. We can offer you products to deter future bees on your site. 


Honey Bee Removal

Many honey bee swarms will move after 24-48 hours as they rest and protect their queen. If not disturbed, they are not harmful or risk to you. They are likely to swarm on trees, bushes or warm areas like compost bins.

If they continue to prove dangerous to you, contact our team, and we can safely remove the nest and relocate them elsewhere.

Bumble Bee Removal

Not presenting any hazards or worry, bumblebees should be left alone without treatment being used. They form annual colonies with their mated queens surviving the Winter. She hides until Spring, and their nests do not typically present a risk to you and your family. 

We will happily advise you over the phone or visit your property to inspect the nest further. Due to declining numbers in the bumblebee population, we don't recommend removing the nest unless there is a severe issue.    


Mason Bee Removal

Unlike other bee species, the Mason Bee is a solitary animal and does not live in colonies. Many do not present a risk to humans, but sometimes they will make nests in the soft mortar of our homes. If you notice small tunnels being created in your mortar, with mud and sand being taken into the nest, this is a sign that eggs are being laid in those cavities. 

We commonly use bee repellent for Mason bees, which doesn't harm them but warns them to stay away from your home and garden. 


Removal & Relocation

Our team always aim to use non-lethal methods when removing and relocating wasps and bees. In the case of the Honey Bee and Bumble Bee, we always attempt to use barriers or physically remove them from your property if they are a disturbance.

In most cases, the bees will not harm you, and you will not know they are there until they've left. Their nests are made in cavities to breed and stay protected, so we don't want to disturb them unless we have to.

In emergencies, we attempt to be at your property on the same day you enquire. Speak to us on the phone if you are concerned.
