Bee Removal Experts Near Me
At Acorn, we love bees! So, if you need some bees to buzz off, you can count on our friendly experts to get the job done quickly and humanely.
The UK is home to over 250 species of bees, with the most popular or well-known being the bumblebee. Some of the other most common types of bees include:
- Tawny mining bee
- Common carder bee
- Red mason bee
Bees are amazing creatures and, unless you’re allergic to them, they are generally not dangerous. However, if a bee nest is located in an inconvenient area, such as near a doorway or window, you could run the risk of getting stung. Additionally, bee nests can damage your property, especially if they are made of wood.
Call on us as soon as you notice a hive and we can get the job done before anything happens.

Swarm, nest and bee hive removal
Whether a swarm has come to visit, or a hive has fully moved into your soffits, we can get your bee problem under control.
1. Removing bee swarms
A bee swarm is a temporary grouping of bees that have left their hive in search of a new home. It’s possible to remove a swarm in a number of ways. These include:
- Spraying the swarm with smoke: This will calm the bees and make them easier to handle.
- Using a bee vacuum: This device will suck up the bees and transport them to a new hive.
- Cutting out the honeycomb: This is a more destructive method, but it is sometimes necessary if the swarm is located in a difficult-to-reach area.
Once the bees have been removed, the beekeeper will either relocate them to a new hive or release them into the wild.
2. Removing bee hives or nests
A bee hive is a permanent home for a colony of bees. Because their nests are made from honeycomb, they can attract other pests such as ants and flies. It can even rot plasterboard ceilings and cause damp problems. That’s why it’s important to get in touch with an expert as soon as possible.
Removing a bee hive is similar to removing a swarm – you can spray the nest with smoke or use a bee vacuum to remove them separately. If the hive is ina difficult-to-reach area, it is possible to cut out the honeycomb. This is a more destructive method and will only be used as a last resort.
3. Bee Nest Removal in Difficult-to-Reach Areas
If you have a bee nest in a difficult-to-reach area, we can still help. While our main priority will always be to find the bees a new home, sometimes it’s not possible.
In these cases, and only as a very last resort, we use a highly effective powder or spray treatment that kills the bees quickly and painlessly.
Our bee removal experts have the experience and expertise to remove bee nests in even the most challenging locations. We will work with you to find a solution that is safe for you, your family, and the bees.

Protecting your property against bees
While bee stings are not nearly as bad as wasps, they can still cause severe reactions. Not only that, but bee hives can cause real damage to your property. That’s why it is important to put measures in place to stop them from moving in. Here are some tips on how to protect your home from bees:
- Keep windows and doors closed: This will help to prevent bees from entering your home.
- Install fly screens: Fly screens are a great way to keep bees out of your home, while still allowing fresh air to circulate.
- Check for nests in early spring: Bee nests are often small and easy to deal with in early spring.
- Seal bins: Bees are attracted to sweet smells, so make sure to seal any bins that contain food or garbage.
- Use wasp traps: Wasp traps can help to catch bees and other pests.
- Use peppermint oil: Peppermint oil is a natural repellent that can help to keep bees away.
If you have tried all of the above and you are still having problems with bees, get in touch and one of our pest control experts can help find you a solution.
