(for the treatment of the hive.)
The goal of this service is to locate, exterminate and remove any hive that is on the customers property and causing them concern.
***Hive removal is priced separately according to the complexity of the removal process.***
If a swarm of bees is spotted in a bush, tree or on the side of your house and no hive is visible, keep the area clear and do not appraoch the swarm. The bees may be the Africanized Honey Bee, which are very agressive and will respond to intrusion or loud noises. Chances are the swarm is just resting and will move on in a matter of hours.
Bees are responsible for more deaths in the United States than any other insect, due to allergic reactions.
Keep everyone, including pets away from the infested area.
- Bees are migratory and may travel miles to forage and pollinate flowers, trees, etc.
- Bees may move on after a resting period, especially if there is no identifiable hive and they’ve only been present hours but not days.
- If a hive is present and the customer does not have it removed, it is quite probable other bees will be drawn to the area and may, in time, establish another hive.
- After the hive treatment and removal, there still may be bees in the area, (those that were not in the hive at the time of the service).
- ***There are no guarantees for this service***.
The queen bee can lay as many as 1500 to 2000 eggs a day, placing one egg in each cell in the brood comb.
Under ordinary conditions, the worker bee has a developmental period of about three weeks. Drones develop in 24 days, and queens in 15 days. If drones are kept in a queen-less hive, they live three to four months, but normally their lives are very short. Workers live 5 weeks (during peak honey season) to 3 months.
