Live Bee Removal and Relocation UK

Encountering a bee nest in or around your property can lead to concerns, particularly due to the essential role bees play in our ecosystem. Understanding the importance of bees for pollination and biodiversity, Pestforce offers professional bee relocation services, ensuring the safety of both the bees and your family.

Understanding the Importance: Bees and Their Benefits

Bees are crucial to the environment, contributing significantly to the pollination of flowers, fruits, and other plants. Unlike wasps, bees are generally not aggressive and only sting when provoked. However, having a bee nest close to human activity can pose risks, especially for those with allergies.

Here are some common types of bees you may encounter in the UK:

  • Honeybees (Apis mellifera): Known for their role in honey production, honeybees live in large colonies and are vital pollinators.
  • Bumblebees (Bombus spp.): Larger and with a distinctive buzzing sound, bumblebees are important for wildflower and garden pollination.
  • Solitary Bees (Various species): Unlike honeybees and bumblebees, solitary bees live alone but are still essential pollinators.

While bees are less likely to sting than wasps, their nests can still pose issues if located near homes or businesses.

Identify the Hive: Recognizing Signs of Bee Infestation

Identifying a bee nest on your property is crucial for their safe and ethical relocation.

Watch out for these signs:

  • Sightings of Bees: Regular bee activity, especially near a particular area, may indicate a nest.
  • Visible Hive: Bee hives can vary in appearance, but they are often seen hanging from branches or attached to structures.
  • Buzzing Sounds: A noticeable increase in buzzing sounds near your property could signal a nearby hive.
