Wirral Bee Removal Experts Near Me

At Acorn, we love bees! So, if you’re looking for bee swarm removal in Wirral, 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 set up shop in 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.

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 Wirral

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 Wirral

A bee swarm is a group of bees that have departed from their original hive in search of a new dwelling. It’s possible to remove a swarm in a number of ways. These include:

  • 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, the beekeeper will proceed to either relocate them to a new hive or release them back into their natural habitat.

2. Bee hive and nest removal Wirral

A bee hive is a permanent residence for a bee colony. The honeycomb in the nests 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 Wirral and they can sort you out 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.

3. Wirral bee extermination

Can’t reach your bee hive? We can help. While our main priority will always be to find the bees a new home, if the hive is in a difficult-to-reach area, sometimes it’s not possible.

In such circumstances, and as an absolute final option, we employ a highly efficient powder or spray treatment to swiftly and painlessly eliminate the bees.

Our team of bee removal experts possesses extensive experience and expertise in removing bee nests, even in the most difficult locations. We will collaborate closely with you to identify a solution that ensures the safety of you, your family, and the bees.

Protecting your Wirral property against bees

While bee stings are not nearly as painful as wasp stings, they can still cause severe 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 can help find you a solution.

Wirral Bee Pest Control FAQs

How much does bee removal cost?

We are dedicated to offering competitive and efficient pricing. We understand that each bee nest removal is unique, so our pricing is tailored to each specific case.

Why are bees important?

Bees play a vital role in our ecosystem as they are crucial for pollination. It is essential to protect bees and their habitats, but 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 not the same, though their similar body shape can cause confusion. Bees typically 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 among them, only the Honeybee will die after stinging. They resort to stinging as a last resort, as it means certain death for them. Because the stinger hooks into human skin to be effective, the Honeybee will self-amputate in order to fly away.

How do you know if bees are pests?

Bees become pests when they establish their nests in or near areas inhabited by humans and pose a threat to humans or pets. This could include aggressive behaviour, stinging incidents, and the potential for allergic reactions.

Can I remove bees myself?

It is not advisable to attempt removing bees by yourself, as it could result in serious injury or harm to both you and the bees. We are equipped 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 during the bee removal process as long as you have the appropriate protective gear.

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

Destroying a bee's nest in the UK without a permit from your local authority is illegal. Bees are protected species, and their nests are considered their homes. If you discover a bee's nest on your property, reach out to Acorn, and we can safely and legally remove the bees.

How long do bees stay in a nest?

The length of time that bees stay in a nest depends on the bee species. Honeybees typically reside in a nest for one year, while bumblebees may inhabit a nest for several years. Once the bees in a nest perish, the queen bee will establish a new nest or perish herself.

What happens if you leave a bees’ nest?

If a bee's nest is left undisturbed, the bees will continue to inhabit it until they naturally die off. However, if the nest is in a hazardous location, such as near a doorway or window, you may prefer to have it removed.

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