Removal of the hive following a bee removal is very important. Without the hive removal, during extreme heat it can actually melt. This will most likely cause other insect issues, as they will be looking to feed on the melted hive. Following the St Petersburg bee removal and hive cleanout, the area must be properly sealed off and any penetration point for bees eliminated. Our technicians carry basic carpentry tools and equipment needed to do this.  While we are onsite performing your bee removal St. Petersburg, we will be happy to look over the exterior of your structure and identify other possible points of entry for bees.

Before attempting bee removal yourself, please educate yourself with the dangers of Africanized bees. This bee species is not to be taken lightly, as they will defend the hive to the end and have a higher level of aggressiveness compared to our native bee species. Africanized bees typically only attack when humans get too close to a nesting colony. If you are subject to this attack, you should never stay in place and swat at the bees.

When bees are stinging you, it is because you are too close to their home. You should cover your airway passages and run away from the area. When seeking a safe haven from the bees, every effort should be made to find an enclosed location. Once at a safe haven, call a professional bee removal service. A professional bee removal company has the proper protective clothing, experience, and is licensed and insured. Most important, a professional bee removal company will attempt live bee removal at all cost in lieu of exterminating the bees.

Bee Facts:

* Africanized honey bees –also called “killer bees”–are established in many parts of Florida. Although the killer reputation has been greatly exaggerated, the presence of Africanized honey bees increases the chances of people being stung. Learning about the Africanized honey bee and taking certain precautions can lower the risk of being injured by this new insect in our environment. The Africanized honey bee is closely related to the European honey bee used in agriculture for crop pollination and honey production. The two types of bees look the same and their behavior is similar in many respects. Neither is likely to sting when gathering nectar and pollen from flowers, but both will sting in defense if provoked. A swarm of bees in flight or briefly at rest seldom bothers people. However, all bees become defensive when they settle, begin producing wax comb and raising young. Feel free to call Tampa Bay Bee Removal with any questions you may have.

*When a honey bee stings, it leaves the stinger as well as the pheromone in its victims skin. Typically, honey bees only sting when they feel the bee hive is threatened. Let Tampa Bay Bee Removal & Relocation remove the bee hive from your property today!

*Africanized bees behavior is thought to be aggressive by many, however the africanized bee behavior is actually defensive. They react to invasion of their environment and defend themselves when necessary. Attacks occur when people are too close to a nesting colony of africanized honey bees. They do not sit around and plot attacks on humans. Let Tampa Bay Bee Removal & Relocation take care of your bee issue before they colonize on your property.

*Honeybee swarm season in Florida typically goes from April through August. When the bees swarm, half of the bee colony splits off and is looking for a new home. This is typically when you notice the bees and call Tampa Bay Bee Removal for help!

*Honey Bees are the only insect that produce food for humans.

*Honey Bees account for 80% of all insect pollination.

*Africanized honey bees follow victims up to 440 yards, while European honey bees follow for only 50 yards.

*The best time to remove bees and have them survive is as a swarm vs. an established bee hive. Simply exterminating a bee hive in a structure without removing the hive will cause bees to re-colonize at that location due to the honey and pheremones left attracting other bees. Call a bee removal professional!

*Foraging bees have to fly about 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey, visiting around 2 million flowers.

*If the queen honey bee is removed from the hive, within 15 minutes, the rest of the colony knows about it.

*Just because you gave bees on your property does not necessarily mean that the bees must be removed. When you call Tampa Bay Bee Removal we may ask you some questions and advise you a bee removal procedure is not necessary. Why? Because some bee swarms will simply move on and leave you and your family alone.

*It is not necessary to disturb the hive itself to initiate an Africanized Bee attack. In fact, Africanized bees have been known to respond viciously to mundane occurrences, including noises or even vibrations from vehicles, equipment and pedestrians.

*Though their venom is no more potent than native honey bees, Africanized bees attack in far greater numbers and pursue perceived enemies for greater distances. Once disturbed, colonies may remain agitated for 24 hours, attacking people and animals within a range of a quarter mile from the hive.

*The ancient Egyptians used honey as food and medicine. It was also used in offerings and for embalming the dead. Beeswax was used in magic rites, for preserving and also in medicine.

*Once Africanized bees are disturbed, the colonies remain agitated for 24 hours, and can attack people and animals within a range of a quarter mile from the bee hive. Although their venom is no more potent, Africanized bees attack in far greater numbers than native honeybees.

*The queen honeybee is about twice the length of a worker. Only female bees sting, the males do not.

*In Florida, the number of registered beekeepers has grown significantly. This is believed to be attributed to a 2012 State law that took away the power of local municipalities to decide whether bees could be kept in residential areas. This will ultimately lead to more calls for bee removal services, as urban area beekeeping activities increase so will the bee swarms which is a natural means of reproduction of honeybee colonies.
