Sheffield Bee Removers Near Me

Is a swarm of bees turning your attic into a buzzing hub? Or have you discovered a hive tucked away in your cavity wall? We’re here to assist you. Trust our skilled Sheffield bee removers for a quick and compassionate resolution.

The UK is home to over 250 bee species, with the bumblebee and honeybee being two of the most well-known.Bees are remarkable creatures and are generally harmless, unless you have an allergy. However, removing a hive on your own, especially if it’s in an inconvenient location like near a doorway or window, increases the risk of getting stung. Bee nests also have the potential to cause property damage, particularly if they are constructed from wood. Some telltale signs are:

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

Reach out as soon as you notice a hive and we will swiftly take care of the task before any issues arise.

Swarm, nest and bee hive removal in Sheffield

Whether you’re faced with an unexpected swarm or a persistent hive, our Sheffield experts will handle it efficiently.

Bee swarm removal Sheffield

A bee swarm can be a temporary assembly of bees seeking a new home. Our humane removal methods include:

  • Calming the swarm with smoke, making it easier to handle.
  • Utilising a bee vacuum to suction and relocate the bees to a new hive.
  • Employing the cutting-out method to remove honeycomb, typically used for hard-to-reach swarms.

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

Bee hive and nest removal Sheffield

A bee hive is a permanent residence for a bee colony. The honeycomb can attract other pests like ants and flies, as well as causing potential damage such as rotting plasterboard ceilings and damp issues. That’s why you should get in touch as soon as you spot a hive.

Removing a bee hive is similar to removing a swarm. Options include applying smoke to calm the nest or using a bee vacuum to extract the bees individually. In cases where the hive is located in a challenging spot, cutting out the honeycomb may be necessary as a last resort, although it is a more invasive method.

Bee extermination Sheffield

Our team is experienced in removing nests from even the most hard-to-reach areas. Though we will always try to relocate the hive, in rare instances, a humane treatment may be used to eliminate the bees.

Safeguard your Sheffield property from bees

Although bee stings are not as severe as a wasp’s, they can still cause significant reactions and can cause real damage to your property. Thankfully, there’s a few things you can do to deter bees from setting up shop on your property:

  • Keep windows and doors closed.
  • Install fly screens, allowing fresh air to circulate while keeping bees out.
  • Conduct regular inspections, particularly in early spring when nests are smaller and easier to manage.
  • Seal bins that contain food or garbage since bees are attracted to sweet smells.
  • Utilise wasp traps to capture the bees.
  • Utilise peppermint oil, a natural repellent that can effectively keep bees away.

If you have tried the above measures and still need bee removers in Sheffield, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our knowledgeable experts can help find a suitable solution tailored to your specific situation.

How much does bee removal cost?

With over 30 years of experience providing bee control services in Sheffield, we can offer competitive and efficient pricing. Each bee nest removal is unique, and so our pricing is customised to suit each specific case.

Why are bees important?

Bees are vital to our ecosystem as they play an important role in pollination. While it is essential to protect bees and their habitats, we certainly don't want them taking up residence in our attics, walls, or garden bushes. That's where we come in - our experts can swiftly and humanely relocate the hive to a new, safe location.

Are bees and wasps the same?

Bees and wasps are different, although their similar body shapes often lead to confusion. Bees typically have a light brown or brown-yellow coloration, while wasps exhibit distinct yellow and black bands around their abdomen. Their nests are also different, as 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.

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 identify the type and location of the nest. Based on the nest's size and location, we determine the most appropriate method, which may involve 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.
