Beehive Removal

Bee removal is not an easy task. The treatment method depends on various factors, such as the type of bees and infestation cycle.

Not all bee removal problems are the same. A proper removal will eliminate the bees and beehive. However, failure to remove all honeycombs can cause a major problem. This is basically why you need experts to do the job.


Proper bee removal requires knowing effective application strategies, limitations, and dangers associated with each method.
Improper destruction of bee colonies can provoke bees and cause them to sting.
It requires complete removal and destruction, and proper disposal of the beehive to prevent foraging bees from neighboring colonies from moving in. It is essential to remove all honeycomb and to plug all holes to keep bees from re-entering the area.

Beehive Removal

Beehive removal becomes important to prevent property damage. A bee colony’s favorite place to hive is in the framing between walls of structures. Similarly, beehive removal locations include: under eaves of enclosed fascia and Spanish roof tiles. Also, water control boxes and any type of enclosed utility box is also very common. Lastly, any equipment or vehicles left stationary and unused for long periods of time, underneath standing construction trailers, in light posts, in the trunks of trees, are also common places for beehive removal.

Beehive Territory

Once the colony builds a hive and establishes its territory it will become very defensive. Being near the hive area becomes dangerous. At that point, the colony does NOT leave on its own and generally will not abandon that hive.

Unattended Beehives​

Even if bees are treated, honeycomb left in the wall will continue to attract bees into the area. Because beeswax remains inside an enclosed structure, it will emit a honey odor. As a result, any hive left in a wall may attract ants, rats, and other critters. An unattended hive may leak honey and emit a sweet, pungent odor causing mold. All hives and honeycomb should be removed from structures by a professional beehive removal expert. Note, feral bee honeycomb is not safe for human consumption. Do not eat any honeycomb made by feral bees.

The Need For Experts

Not all bee removal problems are the same. A proper removal will eliminate the bees and beehive. However, failure to remove all honeycombs can cause a major problem. This is basically why you need experts to do the job. Our highly trained technicians can tell what phase of the bee infestation cycle you are in using several methods. One of these methods includes observing the flight pattern of the bees which tells the presence of the honeycomb. Take note of the following:.

  • If the bees are flying around in random patterns as if they are searching for something, there most likely is no honeycomb present. The bees are scouting for a good location to bring the colony.


  • If, however, the bees are darting in and out of a gap or opening of a structure like a busy airport or freeway, there is a good chance there is honeycomb present. As a result, there is a high probability that infestation has already occurred.

Below is a breakdown of the cycle of infestation. Read on to see in which phase your bee problem may be. This will help you determine whether it’s time to call for experts for bee removal in Los Angeles and nearby areas.
