FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
At Bee Aware, our goal is to answer all of the questions that you might have pertaining to our services. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions.
Q: Are the bees kept alive? Why?
A: We try to keep the bees alive and relocate them whenever possible. We do this to protect the bees as there is a shortage of bees in the world and they are an important part of the ecosystem.
Q: Where are bee hives found?
A: Bee hives can be found indoors and out. Sometimes, they are found in trees and building entrance ways. Other times, they are found in the corners of dark areas, such as garages and warehouses.
Q: When is poison used on bees?
A: All of our bee removers are required to exhaust all non-lethal extraction methods before turning to poison. We work to keep the bees without causing a disturbance to the people around the bees.
Q: What is the cost of bee removal services?
A: The cost varies based on how many hives need to be removed and how aggressive the bees are. We’re able to provide a free estimate over the phone when you call us at Bee Aware.
Q: Will the bee problem continue once they are removed?
A: Bees will sometimes go back to where they were removed from. However, our goal at Bee Aware is to locate the point of entry and make it harder for them to set up a hive, especially inside a home or other building. If the bees come back, we recommend calling for another bee hive removal service. It might also require closing up holes so that bees don’t return during the next swarming cycle.
Q: What makes bees aggressive?
A: Bees are generally not aggressive. However, if the hive has lost their queen or there is a shortage of nectar-producing flowers, bees will become aggressive. There might also be fighting going on because of honey being stolen out of one hive.
Q: What is the difference between a bee remover and a beekeeper?
A: A bee remover is responsible for removing bees and relocating them while a beekeeper is responsible for keeping and maintaining bees and hives for the purposes of honey production and pollination.
