If you discover a live honeybee colony in your chimney, it can be a stressful situation. Not only are you dealing with the risk of bee stings, but you also want to ensure that the bees are safely removed and relocated to a new home. That's where Pest Interceptors come in.
Our team of experts at Pest Interceptors have the knowledge and experience to safely and effectively remove live honeybee colonies from chimneys and relocate them to a new habitat where they can continue to thrive. Here's a step-by-step guide on how we safely remove live honeybee colonies from chimneys.
Step 1: Inspection
The first step is to inspect the chimney to determine the size and location of the colony and develop an appropriate plan for removal. Our experts will also assess the surrounding area to ensure that there are no bystanders or potential hazards.
Step 2: Protective Gear
Before removing the colony, our team puts on protective gear to ensure that they are not stung. This includes a beekeeping suit, gloves, boots, and veil to completely cover up and avoid bee stings.
Step 3: Smoke
We use a smoker to calm the bees and encourage them to retreat into the comb. Smoke also masks some of the chemical signals between bees, which helps to avoid panic and aggression during the removal process.
Step 4: Removal
Once the bees have retreated into the comb, we carefully remove the comb from the chimney. We then place the comb and bees into a special box designed for safe transportation.
Step 5: Relocation
Finally, we transport the bees and comb to a new location where the colony can continue to thrive. Our team ensures that they are placed in a hive box with adequate food, water, and shelter and monitor their progress to ensure that they are adapting well.
In conclusion, honeybee colonies in the chimney can be a danger to both humans and the bees themselves. That’s why it’s essential to call in experts like Pest Interceptors when you discover a colony in your chimney. Our team of professionals has the knowledge and expertise needed to ensure that the bees are safely removed, relocated and can continue to thrive in their new home.
