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.

Please make sure you hire a certified Pest Control Operator (PCO) for your bee issues. Due to the ever expanding presence of Africanized bees in Florida and in St Petersburg FL, the state recommends a PCO for eradication of bees in and around homes. The African honey bee is considerably more defensive of the bee hive than the European honey bee.

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.

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.

*To spray the bees and simply patch their entrance means there will be thousands of rotting bees inside your wall. The honey will attract insects for years to come with potentially devastating damage to your home’s interior structure. When a bee or yellow jacket infestation has occurred, proper bee removal is more than just spraying bug spray and walking away. If done incorrectly, a return of the infestation is almost guaranteed. Do yourself a favor and hire a licensed, professional bee removal company in St Petersburg.

*Tampa Bay Bee Removal offers bee, hornet and wasp removal in St. Pete as well as rural Pinellas County, FL. Where applicable, we attempt to perform “live removal” of honeybees. Following the bee removal, we also remove the bee hive as well.

*Don’t assume the bee hive will just pick up and leave on their own. A bee hive in a St Petersburg neighborhood grew to 100 pounds and over 90,000 bees that had to be removed. At least the bee hive was not in a house, the hive was located in a tree.

*Are you using pesticides in your garden? Please us less toxic, rapidly degradable pesticides. Your garden needs the bees for pollination, so don’ kill the bees along with the pests that are eating your garden. Dust and powder mixed with water pesticides appear to be more hazardous to bees than solutions or concentrates. After coming in contact, the bee may die immediately, or transport the pesticide to the hive resulting in colony death. Call Tampa Bay Bee Removal for customized tips to help you save the bees, while also being able to enjoy your garden.

*Beekeepers supply billions of honeybees to pollinate food crops that we all depend on. Due to pesticides and other issues, beekeepers are worried that the “murder hornet” (V. Mandarinia) may further contribute to those losses. V. Mandarinia is the largest hornet in the world, and is known to decapitate its victims. We understand the first known sighting to be in the state of Washington.

*Why doesn’t honey go bad? Honey has an eternal shelf life, so long as you keep the lid on the honey jar and you don’t add water to it. Every so often, Tampa Bay Bee Removal provides honey jar gift baskets to our customers. This honey comes in part, from beekeepers that we provide bees to following live bee removals in the St Petersburg area. Live bee removal is what we look to do first, in lieu of eradicating these special insects.

*Live bee removal is exactly how it sounds. Tampa Bay Bee Removal & Relocation will safely, while keeping the bees alive, remove the bees from your premises and relocate them to an area that they can continue to live and pollinate. Without live bees, we will starve! Our company recognizes this fact, and we strive to keep the necessary balance. Feel free to give us a call, and let us explain how we safely conduct live bee removal.

*Bees get hot too!  With all the record heat in the Tampa Bay area, did you know that bees have to take cooling measures to protect the hive?  To keep the hives cool, bees fan their wings to promote circulation.  Many times they will fan over droplets of water that they bring to the hive from the outside. Extreme temperatures in the hive can cause the bee larvae to die.  Mother nature knows how to survive. Tampa Bay Bee Removal does its part in protecting the bees by performing live bee removal whenever possible.

*Hurricane season in the Tampa Bay area is here.  Beekeepers are impacted when a hurricane approaches, and have their work cut out for them.  The bee colonies must be protected from water and flying debris, just as you protect your home.  Following the hurricane, the beekeepers must have a ready food source, as the bees natural food sources will likely be in disarray.  Thank a beekeeper next time you see him or her, as they help keep food on your table.  Tampa Bay Bee Removal & Relocation always prefers live bee removal over eradication. This method of bee removal keeps the bees alive while re-locating them to rural areas in Tampa Bay.  Following the bee removal, we offer you a warranty against the bees returning to your home.

*A warranty offered by a Tampa bee removal company is important.  Following bee removal services, any bees that were out foraging will try to return to the hive.  It’s important for bee removal companies to properly seal all openings in the home that would allow for the return of the bees.  Just as important in the bee removal process, is to properly extract all the hive and bees from the wall cavities.  Left behind, the decaying hive will be sure to draw in all kind of other insects.  Additionally, interior wall finishes could be destroyed.  Simply spraying poison in the wall is not a proper bee removal, and will only create bigger problems for you.

* Since the COVID pandemic, many homeowners in the Tampa Bay area have had the desire to be more sustainable.  This includes starting bee hives in their backyards.  Bees have a tremendous impact, in that they pollinate over 75 percent of the produce in your local grocery store.  In addition to pollinating your garden, your backyard bees will provide you lots of honey that you can share with friends and family.

*A recent study suggests that honeybee venom can destroy a type of breast cancer that has limited treatment options.  This study was published npj Precision Oncology.  This is just another example of how natural remedies right in front of us can be used to treat disease.  Furthermore, this reinforces the need to perform live bee removal whenever possible.  Bee eradication should be a last resort.  These little creatures are so valuable to our existence, and we find out more and more every day.

*As you know, we constantly push for live bee removal in the Tampa Bay area.  Sometimes live bee removal may not be able to be successfully accomplished, due to several reasons.  Africanized bees have a different temperament than the North American honeybee, and often have to be eradicated.  Africanized bees get agitated very quickly, and will defend the hive to no end….in big numbers.  This can cause injury to homeowners, and other unsuspecting people who come in near contact.

What does a bee do with all that honey?
They consume it just like us! During the winter months, honey is the main source of food for a bee. When its warm and the flowers are blooming, bees consume nectar. The nectar that the bee brings back to the hive is stored in wax cells which is eventually turned into honey. When the plants stop blooming during the winter the bees remove the wax seal and consume the honey. If possible, Tampa Bay Bee Removal performs live honey bee removal. These bees are then transferred to beekeepers so you may then have some honey too!
Did you know there are more than 300 types of honey in the U.S.? The flavor of the honey differs based on the nectar source visited by the bee. Honey should be a part of your diet, as it has many health benefits from preventing cancer to reducing cough and throat irritation. Bee sure to ask one of our bee removal experts where you can get some fresh, un-touched honey!
