Spring sees the common honey bee swarming as new nesting sites for colonies are sought. Bee swarms can have many thousands of bees all in a large cluster that is usually shaped a bit like a rugby ball. These swarms often occur on trees or fences but they can happen almost anywhere. A bee swarm can be very upsetting and, occasionally, dangerous. That is why we recommend leaving their handling and removal up to the professionals.
When not swarming, Bees usually make their nests in trees, rock crevices or other areas they feel protected. Unfortunately, sometimes they choose to live inside a home or shed which can make them a danger to people.

Whether you are dealing with a swarm or a nest, bees are endangered so ought not to be killed under normal circumstances. Our pest controllers can help with practical advice and solutions. We may be able to help you relocate the hive and give you information on how to prevent bees from taking an interest in your home or shed again. We may even be able to direct you to a local beekeeper who would be happy to come and relocate the hive for free and take good care of the bees. However, in some cases, bees nest or swarm in areas that are impossible to reach to relocate them safely.
In cases like these, Pests Birds and Bugs are able to work with you to find the best solution to remove the bees. Wherever possible this will mean saving the colony but in some extreme cases, it may require the use of more drastic measures.

If you are worried about a swarm or nest of bees in your home or property, we advise you to avoid coming too close and not disturb the bees. While generally docile, honey bees and other similar insects can become aggressive if they feel threatened. Multiple bee stings are painful and can be very serious so there are Health and Safety concerns over bee colonies in some areas.

Bumble Bees can also sting and often colonise bird boxes, compost bins or gaps under garden sheds and can be a nuisance. Generally, their nests are much smaller than those of honey bees so can often be relocated to safer locations. They are also good pollinators and endangered so it is very important to the local ecology that they are protected whenever possible.

If you have a problem with a honey bee or bumble bee nest, we can offer help and advice. Our experts may be able to relocate the bees or remove them if need be and we have all the specialist gear to ensure this is done safely.

Ground Bees

Wasp removal testimonial. I called to have someone come and remove either bees or wasps flying out of a hole in the ground this spring.  It was like Heathrow’s main runway and as we have three small children and a dog we very concerned. They arrived right on time in smart van and identified them as bumble bees that often inhabit old rodent burrows. I was astounded that Mr Cherry was able to smoke the bees and MOVE them to a safe location in the New Forest. We are safe and the bees are safe. I would highly recommend this company.
