Wolverhampton Bee Removal Experts Near Me

At Acorn, we love bees! So, if you need some bees to buzz off, you can count on our friendly experts to get the job done quickly and humanely.

The UK is home to over 250 species of bees, with the most well-known being the bumblebee. Bees are incredible creatures and, unless you’re allergic to them, they are generally not dangerous.

However, if a bee nest is located in an inconvenient area, such as near a doorway or window, you could run the risk of getting stung. They can even damage your property, especially if they are made of wood. Some telltale signs of this are:

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

Get in touch as you notice a hive and we can get the job done before any damage happens.

Swarm, nest and bee hive removal in Wolverhampton

Whether it’s a buzzing swarm or a stubborn hive behind your walls, trust us to step in with a dependable solution.

Bee swarm removal Wolverhampton

A bee swarm is a temporary grouping of bees that have left their hive in search of a new home. It’s possible to remove a swarm in a number of ways. These include:

  • Spraying the swarm with smoke: Calms the bees and makes them easier to handle.
  • Using a bee vacuum: Sucks up the bees and so we can transport them to a new hive.
  • Cutting out the honeycomb: This is a more destructive method, but it is sometimes necessary if the swarm is in a tricky spot.

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 Wolverhampton

A bee hive is a permanent home for a colony of bees but it’s not the best neighbour for humans. They can attract other pests such as ants and flies, and even rot plasterboard ceilings and cause damp problems. That’s why it’s important to get in touch with one of our experts as soon as possible.

Removing a bee hive can be similar to removing a swarm – we can spray the nest with smoke or use a bee vacuum to remove them separately. If the hive is in a difficult-to-reach area, it is possible to cut out the honeycomb.

Bee extermination Wolverhampton

If you have a bee nest in a difficult-to-reach area, we can still help. While our main priority will always be to find the bees a new home, sometimes it’s not possible.

In those rare cases, we’ll use a quick and painless treatment that puts them to sleep. It’s a last resort, but thankfully our bee removal experts have the experience and expertise to remove bee nests in even the most challenging locations. We will work with you to find a solution that is safe for you, your family, and the bees.

Protecting your Wolverhampton property against bees

While a bee’s sting is not nearly as bad as a wasp’s, they can still cause severe reactions. Not only that, but bee hives can cause real damage to your property. That’s why it is important to put measures in place to stop them from moving in. Here are some tips on how to protect your home from bees:

  • Keep windows and doors closed. This will help to prevent bees from entering your home.
  • Install fly screens. Fly screens are a great way to keep bees out of your home, while still allowing fresh air to circulate.
  • Check for nests in early spring. Bee nests are often small and easy to deal with in early spring.
  • Seal bins. Bees are attracted to sweet smells, so make sure to seal any bins that contain food or garbage.
  • Use wasp traps. Wasp traps can help to catch bees and other pests.
  • Use peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is a natural repellent that can help to keep bees away.

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 Wolverhampton 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.

Are bees and wasps the same?

Bees and wasps are not the same, though they are often confused as they can have a similar body shape. Bees are vital for pollination and should not be harmed, they typically have a light brown / brown-yellow colour, while wasps have 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 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.
