A massive "Open Air Colony" with bees that are exposed to the elements. These bees will die this winter if not moved to a new location. They have zero chance of survival in our cold winters with this exposure to the weather.

Service Description

Have our bee removal specialist show up to your property to remove bees, and their comb from a structure (your home, a tree, a shed, a bbq, etc) and put it into a hive box. Note: if the bees are still outside of a structure and haven't started building any comb call immediately for free "Swarm removal" before they move into another home. The pricing for this varies a lot depending on the situation. Most removals are $600-1200 although working at heights or other significant risks/challenges/special equipment can increase that cost. Occasionally there are generous people who donate or over-pay so I can offer discounted rates for people who are in a tough spot financially. What to expect: -$150 consultation fee and a $150 discount on a removal if you proceed. -First we confirm if they are honey bees (most calls are wasps or bumble bees so we try to rule these out before coming on site) -Assess the location and size of the colony using thermal imaging, inspection cameras, and expertise. -Give you a quote including notes of what will be done (walls cut open, etc) -Repairs are done to the level described in the quote What happens to the bees that are removed? -They are installed into a hive including transferring their comb, brood (larvae) and resources like honey, nectar, and pollen -They are moved to a quarantine yard -They will be given syrup, additional bees, even a new queen if needed -They will be checked for pests and disease and treated if needed. There is one disease that would require immediate burning and burying of every hive at the quarantine yard; I'm fortunate not to have come across it yet -Once the bees are healthy and established they will be moved out to the main bee yard where there is lots of land for them to forage on and live their best lives -They will continue to be inspected every 1-2 weeks from May until October for the rest of the colony's life -In the fall they will be fed more syrup to make sure they have enough food to make it through the winter. They will also be treated for mites and for one common disease; then they will be insulated with a thick insulative layer to help them stay warm all winter. CALL or MESSAGE to book 613-803-9839
