The safe removal and rehoming of our precious honey bees
The chances are that if you find a swarm of bees hanging from a tree in your garden or on a wall, there will be plenty of beekeepers only too happy to take them off your hands.
However, when they get into a building, that’s a different matter altogether. Some pest controllers will seek to destroy the colony with an insecticide – this is a disaster. Not only are you killing thousands of bees, but once unoccupied, the combs of honey will attract lots of bees and insects which will also inevitably be poisoned.
Alternatively, if the nest is sealed, the honey can ferment, drip, ooze and cause all kinds of other problems which the fabric of the building and attract other pest species. Also, there is a reasonable chance a swarm will still rediscover the nest and move in.
Traditional Pest Control are passionate about not killing bees, therefore, where possible, we aim to remove the bees from your home and relocate them into domestic hives in locations across Hampshire so that they may continue to thrive. This is particularly poignant in these times of steep pollinator decline and an incredible loss of biodiversity.
