It can be as simple as shaking a swarm off a limb, or as difficult as hang off a lift four stories up. Bee removal are dangerous, arduous and special skills are required. Therefore, expect to be charged, usually skill level determines rates.

Remember, you get what you pay for. Skill level and experience determines price, the cheap or free guys are of low skill level and knowledge.

Some of the cost pays for the equipment to put the bees in after the removal.

In Texas, Bee removal is unregulated. No state agency addresses grievances or governs bee removals, do your research.

Some companies that advertise bee removals do not even keep the bees they remove. Worst of all, some are just exterminators, they will kill the bees then sell you on removing the comb. And still, there are those that will claim they are killer bees. LOL, you can't tell if they are killer bees without a DNA test. Anyone that claims to have a bee removal license is lying.

A bee removal permit issued by the State of Texas only means that the holder can move bees across county lines. This permit has absolutely nothing to do with removing bees from your home or property.

The State of Texas recommends that you do not attempt to remove the hive your self, or spray any chemical into the hive. This will only piss the bees off and endanger yourself and others.

Do not seal bees in that are entering your structure, the bees will find a way out, possibly resulting the invasion of bees into your home.

For forty years an going, Honey Bee Declines Continue Rising. I know some want me to stop blogging about this, saying "Everything is sunshine and roses" Well, let see about that.

I am not only a Beekeeper, I also do Live Bee Removals. This gives me a look into the health of wild honey bees.

Last year I was shocked to see that most of the colonies I removed were weak, some with no brood at all and most with no stores of honey. This was in 2017.

As I looked back, 2016 was the year of the Zika scare. Most, if not all counties in the south sprayed NALED. I believe that NALED had an adverse affect of our 2017 wild honey bee colonies.

I am not saying that this is the cause of the continue decline of managed colonies. But it does not help. In fact, just look what it did to an apiary in South Carolina reported by the Weather Channel.

I and other Bee Removal experts in the south are still seeing the effects of this spraying. Wild colonies are the hardest hit, and they have no beekeeper to protect them.

At least, managed colonies have someone to doctor them back to health or even increase the colony. Wild colonies are on their own.

Bee declines continue to rise. They estimate that colony losses to be up seven percent this year.

Gives us a deeper look into Honey Bee declines. They show that there is not just one answer.

Many factors inhibit the health of all flying insects.

I believe that we must change our ways of life, or we might not have much to look forward too.
