Bee Removal

Honey Tree Apiaries also known as Alpine Honeybee Removal

Specializes in removing honeybees from structures




Honey bees, both in the wild and in managed hives often "swarm" in the spring through early summer. Swarming is the way in which bees relieve a congested condition in the hi ve. When a swarm occurs part of the bees in the colony along with a queen leave the hive.  Swarms usually rest in a convenient comfortable place before finding a permanent home.  The resting place may be a tree branch, post, rosebush, etc.

Eventually the bees will locate a permanent home and move in.  This may be a cavity of any sort:  tree hollow, wooden box, rusted out gas tank, old milk can, or the walls of your hou se. Once they move in they can become difficult to remove.

Honey bees are usually quite gentle, though they can cause problems: to allergic people, in hig hly traveled areas, or in the walls of a house or other valuable structure. Honey bees in a wood structure are a problem.  The build up of debris, honey and wax can attract secondary pests, cause rot and water logging.  A dead hive in a structure will cause worse problems.  The honey bee colony should be removed entirely without killing the bees.

Alpine Honey Bee Removal extracts honeybee colonies without killing the bees.  All bees, wax honey and debris are removed from the cavity.  The area is cleaned and left to be sealed.
