Why call a beekeeper to remove Honey Bees?
Exterminators will not kill honey bees and for good reason, besides the fact that honey bees are important to human survival, once a honey bee colony takes residents they will build honey comb and begin filling it with honey. If comb and honey is left in the structure other insects will be drawn to the sweet honey and will infest your home. The comb and honey need to be removed for this not to occur.
We provide honey bee removal. We will open your you structure, get to the hive and remove the entire comb and bees. Getting to the hive can be a challenge, many times we’ll need to cut Sheetrock, siding, trees, to expose and remove the hive and bees safely. Once we’are done you’ll need to call a handyman for the repairs. We do our best to keep damage to a minimum.
Depending on how extensive the removal is that will determine the price. A topical bee removal runs between $300 – $700 larger and difficult hives will range from $800 – $1300 . There will be a non refundable $100 fee for coming down to your location. If you do hire us to remove the bees that $100 can be applied to the removal fees. All fees will be agreed on before we begin.
Note: Swarm bee removals are FREE.
Bees in your home?
If you see bees coming and going from a opening in your home, take a picture of the bees as well as the location where they are so we can positively identify what type of bees and text the pictures to 917-673-0056. If indeed they are honey bees we’ll professionally remove them. You can also upload images here .

First, Don’t Panic! Honey Bees in a swarm are not likely to sting , stay clear from them and, call us. Second, you’ve done the right thing by calling a beekeeper to help you.
