Honey Comb Removal
Here at Beegone® we specialise in the removal of honey combs.
We are passionate about saving bees and the environment!
The U.N. have reported that of the 100 crop species that provide 90 percent of the world’s food, more than 70 percent are pollinated by bees. This is why it is vitally important that we take care to remove the honeycomb when removing honeybees from an environment.
Insecticides cannot be used kill off the colony and they will contaminate the honeycomb. This in turn will leave long lasting damage to the environment. The smell of residue of the treated colony leaves is attractive to other honeybees or wasps. Eventually more swarming bees will re-colonise on the same honey comb. During this time foraging honeybees from other established colonies could also steal the contaminated honey and introduce it to their own hives, which means insecticide could then end up in our human food chain.

Non-Lethal Bee Removal
Moving swarms on bushes and trees is a pretty common activity during swarming season in summer months for beekeepers both experienced and inexperienced, and for enthusiasts like us. When the swarm colonises a cavity in a structure and they need to be removed for safety. For nuisance, structural damage or work prevention reasons, removal of these highly beneficial insects is not an easy job - even for experienced beekeepers, let alone the inexperienced and uninsured to attempt.
It’s not just the honeybees that can be a great risk when removing them - it’s also the building fabric that can be dangerous. For example, asbestos, wiring cables, not to mention working at heights are some of the obvious risks involved with this.
Here at Beegone® we carry out a full site survey and risk assessment before anything is done. We then document everything and then send you a proposal for work to be done. Once we have removed the honeybees we then proof the structure to prevent other honeybees getting back in. Guaranteed.
