Honey-Bee Removal Service

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.

Our Services:
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’re done you’ll need to call a handyman for the repairs. We do our best to keep damage to a minimum.

Not Sure What Type of Bees You Have?
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 the type of bees and text the pictures to 845-445-8273 or send us a bee removal request HERE.

We are Licensed & Insured.

Before After

Honey Bee Hives


  • Shape: Small and Furry Bee
  • Color: Orange-brown (golden) with black markings on the abdomen
  • Size: 0.35 inch – 0.78 inch long
  • Nest: They will live in empty quiet cavities in houses or hollow trees

Honeybees can sting, but are considered docile and are not likely to be a threat to people unless disturbed. 

Honey bees sting for one reason: they feel threatened, and they are either defending themselves or their nest. When bees feel threatened and respond by stinging, keep people & pets away from nests and call a professional to remove them

How Serious Are Honeybees Hives?

Many people fear bees and want to get rid of them, even helpful species such as honey bees.

Bees are not welcome in the yard, especially not a swarm containing thousands of honeybees. What is going on? Are they lost? Are they sick? Well, they are not sick and they are not lost. These bees have “absconded” from their nest, a common bee behavior in the spring that occurs whenever honey bees outgrow their existing hive. They have simply left the old hive and are looking for a place to build a new home. They have landed on your property to rest while scout bees continue looking for the perfect place.

How Serious Are Honeybee Swarms?

Honeybee Swarms are docile and even though they are a stinging pest, they do not sting unless provoked. Bees only sting to protect themselves and if left alone they will not come after you. Keep people and pets away from the area and contact us to have them safely removed.
