Galveston Bee Removal
Is there a swarm or bees on your property or near it? Is it possible to wonder what the bees are doing? They are looking for a home. Swarming is an integral part of the honeybee life cycle. Our ecosystem is very dependent on bees, so we aim to increase their numbers. But beekeepers and farmers don’t have much to offer if they find a home under a roof or on a pole.
These beekeepers are willing to relocate bees if you want to speak with them about the relocation of the bees. There is no fee structure. Most beekeepers will remove a bee swarm at no cost or minimal charge. However, some may ask for a donation to help with fuel costs or a minimum reimbursement. There may be a charge if the bees were found in a place that requires special equipment to reach them or if they are enclosed in walls or any other structures. Some beekeepers can work alone while others have to work with contractors. Your contractor may be required to repair any structural damage caused by the removal. Please make sure you have the following information ready before calling one of the Bee Rescuers.
Many beekeepers are disappointed when they discover that wasps have been found in swarms. If the caller is unsure of the identification, they should send a photo to beekeeper. For the sake of avoiding surprises, be sure to include as much information as you can, such as location, accessibility, size, height, and other pertinent details. A honey bee colony is not something you should attempt to eradicate. They are not trying to defend their colony, but rather are looking for a new home. A skilled beekeeper can quickly collect a swarm if the swarm is within easy reach or the height of a ladder. You should not spray or kill the cluster. Honey bees reproduce by swarming. They should not be killed. We want to save and relocate them. Unfortunately, the honeybee population has decreased over the past decade. Honey bees pollinate crops and many other plants. Only the most robust and healthy colonies can produce swarms. The good genes are destroyed by their destruction.
Honey bees can be vulnerable when they swarm. They will “hang out” or cluster on a branch, roof overhang, or any other structure that provides some protection. They are very vulnerable. The “swarm”, which is usually a group of younger and older bees, is made up of one queen and a few others. Because of her short wings, she is unable fly far. They are still clinging to one another, but the “scoutbees” are on the lookout for a new colony home. Once the new location has been selected, the bees can fly off to set up their new home. Sometimes a swarm will fly away before you realize it.
Africanized Bees We consider honeybees sacred. However, not all honeybees are good neighbors. Africanized honey bees tend to be too defensive (sting too frequently) to make good neighbors. It is best not to capture bee swarms or remove wild hives from trees and buildings in areas where they are known to exist. The public has a very positive perception of bees. They are valued for their pollination and the pure honey that they produce. We must not diminish the positive public image of honeybees by encouraging Africanized ones. These bees are easily identifiable based on their willingness to sting. They will also follow you once they’re disturbed.
In parts of the Southern United States, Africanized bees can be found in Arizona, New Mexico, California, Texas, and New Mexico. In California, Africanized honey bees have been found in the following counties. You may see a swarm if you reside in any of these areas.
The United States Department of Agriculture People’s Garden Initiative offers support to bee rescuers.
