Liverpool Bee Removers Near Me

Found a bee swarm in your attic? Look no further – at Acorn, we’re passionate about bees and can provide compassionate, expert bee nest removals in Liverpool.

The UK is home to a diverse array of bee species, including the beloved bumblebee. Some of the other most common species are the honeybee, tawny mining bee, common carder bee, and red mason bee.

Bees are truly remarkable creatures and, unless you have an allergy, they pose minimal threat. However, removing a hive yourself can be risky, especially if it’s inconveniently positioned near a doorway or window. Moreover, bee nests have the potential to cause property damage, particularly if they’re constructed with wood.

Reach out to us at the first sight of a hive, and we’ll get those bees to buzz off.

Swarm, nest and bee hive removal in Liverpool

From unwelcome swarms to stubborn hives in your soffits, we’ve got your bee problem covered. Trust us to take control and provide a reliable solution.

1. Bee swarm removal Liverpool

A bee swarm occurs when a group of bees temporarily leaves their hive in search of a new home. There are various methods to remove a swarm, including:

  • Calming the swarm with smoke: Spraying smoke helps to relax the bees, making them easier to handle.
  • Utilising a bee vacuum: This specialised device gently sucks up the bees, allowing for their transportation to a new hive.
  • Removing the honeycomb: In certain situations, cutting out the honeycomb may be necessary, even though it can cause some damage. This method is employed when the swarm is in a hard-to-reach location. Once the bees have been removed, the beekeeper will either relocate them to a new hive or release them into the wild.

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

2. Bee hive removal Liverpool

A bee hive is a permanent home for a bustling colony of bees. However, these honeycomb nests can attract unwanted visitors like ants and flies. Not only that, they can cause trouble by damaging plasterboard ceilings and creating dampness. That’s why it’s crucial to reach out to an expert as soon as you spot a hive.

Removing a bee hive is similar to dealing with a swarm. You can use smoke to calm the bees or employ a bee vacuum to remove them safely. In some cases, if the hive is in a tricky spot, we may have to resort to cutting out the honeycomb. It’s a bit more of a drastic measure, but we’ll only do it if there’s no other option left.

3. Bee exterminators in Liverpool

If you find yourself dealing with a bee nest tucked away in a hard-to-reach spot, don’t worry – we’ve got your back! Our top priority is always to find the bees a new, suitable home, but there are situations where it’s simply not feasible.

In those rare cases, as an absolute last resort, we use a powder or spray treatment that swiftly and painlessly eliminates the bees. Rest assured, our bee removal experts are well-versed in handling nests in even the most challenging locations and will aim to find a solution that prioritises everyone’s safety, including you, your family, and the bees themselves.

Protecting your Liverpool property against bees

Although bee stings are typically less severe than wasp stings, they can still cause strong reactions. Additionally, bee hives can result in significant property damage. That’s why it’s important to take steps to prevent them from settling in. Here are some friendly tips on how to protect your home from bees:

  • Keep windows and doors closed to prevent bees from entering your home.
  • Install fly screens, which allow fresh air to circulate while keeping bees out.
  • Check for nests during early spring when they are usually smaller and easier to handle.
  • Seal bins that contain food or garbage, as bees are attracted to sweet smells.
  • Employ wasp traps, which can help capture bees and other pests.
  • Utilise peppermint oil, a natural repellent that can deter bees.

If you’ve attempted these methods and you’re still dealing with persistent bee issues, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our team of experts is ready to lend a helping hand and find a solution that works for you.

Liverpool bee nest removal FAQs

How much does bee removal typically cost?

With over 30 years of experience providing bee pest control services in the North West, we understand the importance of competitive and efficient pricing. Each bee nest removal is unique, so we customise our pricing to suit each specific case. Our fully qualified team utilises their expertise and modern equipment to safely and effectively remove bees from your property.

Why are bees so important?

Bees are vital to our ecosystem, playing a crucial role in pollination. While it's important to protect bees and their habitats, we also want to ensure they don't settle in inconvenient places like our attics, walls, or garden bushes. That's where we come in. Our experts specialise in quickly and humanely relocating hives to new, safe locations.

Are bees and wasps the same?

Bees and wasps may have similar body shapes, leading to confusion, but they are different. Bees are crucial for pollination and should be preserved. They typically have a light brown or brown-yellow colour. On the other hand, wasps have distinct yellow and black bands around their abdomen.

Do bees die after stinging?

Only female bees possess stingers, and for Honeybees, they die after stinging. Bees resort to stinging as a last resort, knowing it will result in their own demise. The barbed stinger hooks into human skin, causing the Honeybee to self-amputate in order to fly away.

How do you determine if bees are pests?

Bees become pests when they construct nests in or near human-inhabited areas, posing a threat to humans or pets. Aggressive behaviour, stinging incidents, and the potential for allergic reactions are indications of their pest status.

Can I remove bees myself?

Attempting to remove bees on your own can lead to serious injury or harm, both for you and the bees. It's best to rely on professionals like us who can safely remove hives or swarms and, importantly, relocate the bees to a new home.

How do you go about removing bees?

Removing bees involves first identifying the type and location of the nest. Depending on its size and location, we determine the most appropriate method, which may include vacuuming, trapping, or physical removal.

Is it safe to be present during bee removal?

Yes, it is safe to be in the vicinity while bees are being removed, provided you have the proper protective gear.

Is it legal 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. Bees are protected species, and their nests are considered their homes. If you discover a bees nest on your property, reach out to Acorn, and we can safely and legally remove the bees.

How long do bees typically stay in a nest?

The duration that bees stay in a nest varies depending on the bee species. Honeybees generally inhabit a nest for one year, while bumblebees may stay for several years. When the bees in a nest die off, the queen bee will either establish a new nest or perish.

What happens if you leave a bees nest untouched?

If you leave a bees nest undisturbed, the bees will continue to inhabit it until they naturally die off. However, if the nest poses a threat due to its location near a doorway or window, you may consider having it removed.

How can I get rid of bees in my cavity wall?

If you have bees in your cavity wall, get in touch with us, and we will safely remove the bees without causing any harm to your home.
