Expert Preston Bee Removers Near Me
At Acorn, we love bees! So, if you’re looking for bee hive removal in Preston, you’ve come to the right place.
There are over 250 species of bees in the UK, the most well-known of which is the bumblebee. Other common types include:
- Tawny mining bee
- Common carder bee
- Red mason bee
Unless you have an allergy, bee hives generally pose no significant danger. However, when bees decide to set up shop in an inconvenient location like near a doorway or window, the risk of getting stung increases. In some cases, they can even damage your home – especially if it’s wooden.
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 in Preston
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. Bee swarm removal Preston
A bee swarm refers to a temporary gathering of bees that have departed from their original hive in search of a new one. There are several methods available for removing a swarm, including:
- Smoking out the swarm: This technique helps to calm the bees, making them easier to handle.
- Using a bee vacuum: This device effectively sucks up the bees and transports them to a different hive.
- Cutting out the honeycomb: While this method can cause some damage, it becomes necessary when dealing with swarms in hard-to-reach areas.
Once the bees have been successfully eliminated, the beekeeper will either relocate them to a new hive or release them back into their natural environment.
2. Bee nest removal Preston
A bee hive serves as a permanent residence for a bee colony. Since these hives are constructed from honeycomb, they can attract other pests like ants and flies. Moreover, they have the potential to cause damage to plasterboard ceilings and contribute to damp issues. As such, it is crucial to promptly seek assistance from an expert.
The process of removing a bee hive is similar to removing a swarm. Options include applying smoke to the nest or utilising a bee vacuum to extract the bees individually. In cases where the hive is located in a challenging spot, it may be necessary to resort to cutting out the honeycomb. This method is more invasive and will only be employed as a last resort.
3. Bee exterminators Preston
If you’re dealing with a bee nest situated in a hard-to-reach location, we are still able to provide assistance. While our primary focus is always to relocate the bees to a new habitat, there are instances where this may not be feasible.
In such cases, and only as an absolute last option, we employ a highly efficient powder or spray treatment that swiftly and painlessly eliminates the bees.
Our team of bee removal specialists possesses the necessary experience and expertise to tackle bee nests in even the most difficult areas. We will collaborate with you to determine a solution that prioritises safety for you, your family, and the bees.

Protecting your Preston property against bees
Although bee stings are not as severe as wasp stings, they can still lead to significant reactions. Additionally, bee hives have the potential to cause substantial damage to your property. Therefore, it is essential to take preventive measures to discourage bees from taking up residence. Here are some tips to safeguard your home from bees:
- Keep windows and doors closed to prevent bees from entering your home.
- Install fly screens to keep bees out while allowing fresh air to flow.
- Conduct early spring inspections for small and manageable bee nests.
- Seal bins that contain food or garbage, as bees are attracted to sweet odours.
- Use wasp traps to capture bees and other pests.
- Employ peppermint oil, a natural repellent, to deter bees.
If you have attempted all of the above measures and are still experiencing difficulties with bees, please contact us, and our experts will assist you in finding a suitable solution.
