Here are some tips to help you with your bee infestation:
1) Remove all containers, like buckets, these attract the bees.
2) Removal of the hive is very important as any residue will re-attract bees. Please make sure that the company you decide to hire is including removal in their prices and not just charging you to fumigate the bees or wasps.
3) The cost of beehive removal and extermination varies. The price depends on the size and location of the beehive. For example, a large hive in a 20ft tree would be more than a medium hive growing in an easily accessible area. If you can give us a description of size and location we can give you an accurate estimate over the phone.
4) Please keep in mind that everyday you wait to get rid of the bees, the hive is grower larger and larger. The queen will lay around 1,500 eggs per day. Within a year a hive can have over 80,000 bees. Waiting only makes the hive removal process more difficult and costly.
5) Ensure that there are no open windows or holes in the walls of your house from where bees could enter once the beehive is removed.
6) Do not get swayed by store insecticides, as they only work temporarily and are not effective in removing the bee hive.
7) Never approach a beehive, as bees are dangerous and can cause death to human beings. Be especially careful with ground bees, these are yellow jackets. If you ever see bees coming from the ground run away fast, these are worse than killer bees. They will swarm with the intention to kill.
Get the beehive removed as soon as you observe it. Bees become belligerent once they hive and start producing honey.
