Your Bee Removal questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does bee removal cost near me?

Bee removal costs $125 to $1,000 on average to relocate a nest of docile honeybees or bumble bees. An inspection alone costs $75 to $100 for the beekeeper's travel expenses and time, and some may remove an outdoor bee swarm at no additional fee.

The most expensive bee removals cost $375 to $1,600 for the poisoning or relocation of Africanized killer bees that are the most hostile.

How do I know if I need bee removal?

Bee removal becomes necessary if:

  • A bee nest is close to areas frequently used by individuals or pets.
  • You discover dead bees inside, signaling they could be in your walls.
  • Buzzing sounds come from the walls.
  • Surfaces like drywall, ceilings, or floors start to bulge and stain.
  • Honey is trickling down from the chimney or roof edges.
  • You notice holes in wooden beams or sawdust, indicative of carpenter bees.

Do bees come back after hive removal?

Bees do return sometimes following a hive removal if they're unable to locate a different queen bee. Typically, these remnant bees will vacate the premises independently within a span of 1 to 2 weeks, or they may die within this period.

A bee removal expert can return and move any residual bees off the property.

Does the city remove beehives?

Municipal city wildlife departments do remove beehives, but their jurisdiction extends only to public properties like parks, city-owned meters, and utility boxes. Due to legal constraints, the city authorities can't remove bees on private properties.

Call your local parks and recreation department for more information in cases where bees are in between or near public spaces.

Will beekeepers remove bees for free?

Beekeepers occasionally offer free bee removal services for a new swarm of bees, provided they are outside the residence and reachable without a ladder.

However, if the bees have taken up residence for more than a week and constructed honeycombs, the removal process is more time-consuming and unlikely to be free.

Does homeowners insurance cover bee removal?

In most policies, homeowners insurance doesn't cover bee removal, unless your coverage plan specifically includes pest control. Insurance companies typically expect the property owner to discourage bee infestations before they can establish a nest and potentially inflict more extensive damages.

Who do I call for bee removal near me?

For bee removal, consider reaching out to these professionals:

  • Wildlife eviction services
  • Neighborhood beekeepers
  • Bee preservation societies
  • Local honey distributors
  • Pest extermination companies, particularly for killer bees or significant issues

Always remember when hiring a bee remover:

  • Gather bids from a minimum of 3 companies with 5+ years of experience.
  • Confirm they have licenses and insurance for bee removal.
  • Read their customer feedback on Google and HomeGuide.
  • Check their pesticide certification and level of training.
  • Avoid those offering the lowest rates, indicative of inferior services.
  • Keep a record of their service contracts, guarantees, and total estimate.
  • Only proceed with the final payment once the task is complete.

What are the best questions to ask bee removers?

Before choosing a service provider, consider asking prospective companies:

  • How much experience do you have in bee removal?
  • Do you specialize in removing any specific bee types?
  • What techniques work best to eliminate bees and prevent their return?
  • How will you ensure the safety of my family and pets during the bee removal?
  • What will you do to prevent potential property damage during the removal?
  • Do you utilize humane, environmentally friendly methods to relocate bees?
  • Can you also get rid of the bee nest to prevent it from attracting other bees?
  • Is there a guarantee offered on your services in case the bees reappear?
  • What is the estimated total duration of the bee removal process?
  • How should I prepare for the bee removal process?
  • Could you provide references from your previous clients?
