Bradford Bee Removal Experts Near Me

At Acorn, we love bees! So, if you’re looking for bee swarm removal in Bradford, you’ve come to the right place.Bees are truly remarkable creatures, and unless you have an allergy, they generally pose little danger. However, if the bees have moved into an inconvenient space, such as near a doorway or window, there is a risk of getting stung. Bee nests can even cause damage to your property, especially if they are constructed with wood. Telltale signs of this include:

  • Holes in wood
  • Sawdust piles
  • Excrement stains below the holes

Swarm, nest and bee hive removal in Bradford

Whether a swarm has come to visit, or a hive has fully moved in, we can get your bee problem under control.

Bee swarm removal Bradford

A bee swarm is a group of bees that are looking for a new home. It’s possible to remove a swarm in a number of ways:

  • Spraying the swarm with smoke: This technique helps calm the bees, making them easier to handle.
  • Using a bee vacuum: This specialised device sucks up the bees and safely transports them to a new hive.
  • Cutting out the honeycomb: Although more intrusive, this approach becomes necessary when the swarm is located in a hard-to-reach area.

After the bees have been removed, we will either relocate them to a new hive or release them back into the wild.

Bee hive and nest removal Bradford

A bee hive is a permanent home for a bee colony. Since they are made of honeycomb, they can attract other pests such as ants and flies, or sometimes rot plasterboard ceilings and cause damp problems. Get in touch with our bee removers in Bradford and they solve your bee problem before anything happens.

Just like removing a swarm, you can spray a beehive with smoke or use a vacuum. If the hive is in a tricky spot, it is possible to cut out the honeycomb. Because this method causes more damage, it will only be used as a last resort.

Bradford bee extermination

If the bee hive is in a difficult spot, we can still help. While our main priority will always be to find the bees a new home, this is sometimes not possible.

Our team of bee removal experts have extensive experience in removing bee nests, even in the most difficult locations. We will always aim to find a solution that ensures the safety of you, your family, and the bees.

Protecting your Bradford property against bees

While a bee sting is not nearly as painful as a wasp’s, they can still cause dangerous reactions and can damage your property. Here are some tips on how to protect your home from bees:

  • Close windows and doors. This stops the bees getting inside.
  • Install fly screens. This keeps the bees out whilst still letting fresh air in.
  • Check for nests in early spring. This is when bee nests are small and easy to deal with.
  • Seal bins. Bees follow sweet smells, so keep your bins closed.
  • Use wasp traps. These can help you catch bees and relocate them.
  • Use peppermint oil. This 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 experts will find you a customised solution.

Removing Bee Swarms Across The North West

We provide bee pest control services across the whole of the North West, but mainly service the following areas:


How much does bee removal cost?

We have been providing bee pest control services in the North West for over 30 years and are committed to providing the most competitive and efficient pricing. We understand that no two bee nest removals are the same, so our pricing is customised to each individual case. Our fully qualified team uses a combination of skill and modern equipment to safely and effectively remove bees from your property.

Why are bees important?

Bees are an important part of our ecosystem and they play a vital role in pollination. We need to do everything we can to protect bees and their habitats, but we still don’t want them moving into our attic, walls or garden bushes. That’s where we come in, as our experts can quickly and humanely move the hive to a new, safe location.

Do bee nests look like wasp nests?

While bees and wasps can be commonly confused, their nests are very different. Wasps use wood pulp to create their hives, resulting in a ridged, papery structure that’s roughly the size and shape of a football or rugby ball. On the other hand, bees create sheets of beeswax that are made up of hexagonal pods. Bees and wasps are not the same, though their similar body shape can be easily confused. Bees have a light brown / brown-yellow colour, while wasps have yellow and black bands around their body.

Do bees die after they sting you?

Only female bees have stingers and only the Honeybee will die after it stings you. They will only do this as a very last resort, as it means certain death for them. Because the stinger hooks into human skin in order for it to be effective, the Honeybee will literally have to self-amputate to be able to fly away.

How do you know if bees are pests?

Bees become pests if they build their nests in or near human-inhabited areas and pose a threat to humans or pets. This could include aggressive behaviour, stinging, and the potential for allergic reactions.

Can I remove bees myself?

You should not try to remove bees by yourself as it could result in serious injury or harm to you or the bees. We will be able to safely remove the hive or swarm and, importantly, relocate the bees to a new home.

How do you remove bees?

To remove bees we first have to identify the type and location. Depending on the location and size of the nest, we then choose which method is best. This can include vacuuming, trapping, or physical removal.

Is it safe to be in the area while the bees are being removed?

It is safe to be in the area while bees are being removed as long as you have the correct protective gear.

Is it illegal to destroy a bees nest in the UK?

Yes, it is illegal to destroy a bees nest in the UK without a permit from your local authority. This is because bees are a protected species and their nests are considered to be their homes. If you find a bees nest on your property, contact Acorn and we can remove the bees safely and legally.

How long do bees stay in a nest?

The length of time that bees stay in a nest depends on the type of bee. Honeybees typically stay in a nest for one year, while bumblebees may stay in a nest for several years. When the bees in a nest die off, the queen bee will either start a new nest or die.

What happens if you leave a bees’ nest?

If you leave a bees nest alone, the bees will continue to live in the nest until they die off. However, if the nest is in a dangerous location, such as near a doorway or window, you may want to have it removed.
