HOW TO HOW TO GET RID OF HONEYBEES

Honeybees in a tree can be a nuisance call beekeeper to get rid of them

1- CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO REMOVE HONEYBEES 

It is recommended that you call your local beekeeper to remove honeybees and unless it is an extensive removal, they usually do it for free. I find that your local beekeeper will save the bees and relocate them to a safe new beehive. We have a shortage of honeybees which pollinate our fruit trees, vegetable, flowers and farm fields. They are crucial insects supporting our food supply chain. Without them we have about 1/3 of the vegetables and fruits left or available in the grocery store.

Or if you are inclined capture them by removing the honeycombs and putting them into deep honey boxes and supporting the honeycombs vertically, use smoke and bee suits or veils and bee gloves as it is risky job if not done correctly. Once all the bees are collected transport them to another location about 12 km away so they don’t find their way back.

2-CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO REMOVE YELLOW JACKETS 

If you have an issue with Yellow Jackets (aka European wasp, German wasp, or German yellow jacket) are pretty aggressive species and ought no to take the situation too lightly and always take safety precautions. If possible, take a cloth bag and capture the entire beehive. Make it fast and wear protective gear. If not done correctly you will have many bees attacking you. Sometimes if the bees nest is exposed then use large bag to capture the entire nest seal  and relocate, make sure you get the queen otherwise the foraging bees and queen may start up a new bees nest. Be cautious as some bee species eats through plastics and cloth bags.

3-CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO REMOVE HORNETS

If you have an issue with HORNETS which are also part of the wasp family are usually very aggressive species and ought no to take the situation too lightly and always take safety precautions. Better yet call your local beekeeper to get rid of them. These bees serve to eat a variety of insects and reduce the need for using harsh chemicals. Although difficult to remove it is best to save the bees and relocate them. You will not find many Ontario beekeepers who will remove hornets naturally but are more interested in removing honeybee swarms which literally take no more than 30 minutes in most cases. If they are hanging on a branch it may take 10 -15 min to remove them. We at HoneyHoney specialize in removing most bee type nests although sometimes we also use bee sprays to get rid of them.

 

4-CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO REMOVE ASIAN OR EUROPEAN HORNETS

 

Asian Bees or European Hornets are the biggest and most feared even beekeepers and pest exterminators don’t like getting to close to these insects because of their size and amount of poison which can get injected multiple times. If you can trap them in a large enough bag and put the entire nest into it and seal the neck quickly, great.

 

Remember that any slight movement of the hive or tree branch will cause them to dive-bomb on anything around the nest. It could be very daunting and dangerous situation when hundreds of bees are attacking and you can’t outrun them.

5-CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO REMOVE CARPENTER BEES 

 

The carpenter bees’ drills 1/2-inch holes into wood and makes internal channels about 3-4 feet inside the wood decking where they lay eggs. Typically, carpenter bees love natural woods planks whether window frames or above doors, garage doors or structures. The best method is to remove the wood planks and replace them. They could cause structural damage if left unattended for a longer time.  Caulking won’t work as they will cut through it.

6-CALL YOUR LOCAL BEEKEEPER TO REMOVE BUMBLEBEES  

 

Bumblebees are social in nature and typical make their nest in the ground and may consist of 200-400 bumblebees. Again, be cautious as they have longer stingers, slower flying insects but nevertheless could be very aggressive by themselves or in multiple numbers. I usually use a vacuum cleaner to catch them and relocate them 15km away from the nest.

 

How you can kill or remove the bees using other methods  

7- Using chemical sprays or powder which contain neurotoxins

 

Big box stores have multiple use sprays which kill bees in matter of seconds. They all contain neurotoxins and are deadly to bees and to some extent if inhaled larger doses to humans and dogs. So be careful when using these sprays and ensure plenty of ventilation for about 2 days.  Always use facial masks with special ventilators to avoid breathing in these chemicals.

 

8-Putting captured bees in a bag 

 

If you are brave enough capture bees in a plastic or cloth bag and set out the bag in the sun, they will die from heat exposure within several hrs. Also be careful because the bees have great dexterity and mobility and will fly out the tinniest holes and dive-bomb you. And finally, they cut through various bags within 30 minutes to 1 hr.

 

9-Soapy/Vinegar Spray bottles 

 

Spray the bees thoroughly with soapy water or vinegar to cover their entire body. This works pretty well but staying out the bee’s way when they get angry could be problematic. For honeybees they have 4 ports on each side of the body and find that once soaked they die from the liquid however bald-headed hornets and yellow jackets are much harder to pin down and kill.

 

10-Call an exterminator

 

If all else fails call an exterminator or pest control company to get the job done.

 

11-Burning the nest

 

If the bee hive is outside of your home you may consider burning it, but put safety measures in place in case the tree burst into flames. On public property you might want fire department close by but first you need permission from the city. I have seen people just do it but I do not condone this method for liability issues and/or safety concerns. On private property with bees nest hanging from the tree I have simply used a propane burner if it cannot be removed simply.
