Structural BeeHive Removal

Beehives within the structure are found in a variety of vacant cavities of the framework.  Bees gain access via a small opening and build a hive as large as the space permits over time.  Due to this, each job is unique, and requites a custom solution.  A physical inspection is a must.

Keep in mind... We do not do repairs!

Roof Hive Removal

Roof hives are mostly found between rafters.  Bees attach a hive to the underside of the roofs cover board and grow it as large as the space permits over time.  For this reason, it is important to remove the hive as soon as it starts, while it is small.  Delaying will result in larger roof opening and a more complicated removal.

Removal Procedure

  • Removal of the roofing material
  • Opening the cover board to expose the hive. 
  • Removal of worker bees, brood, drones and the Queen Bee
  • Removal of wax, honey, pollen, nectar and propolis
  • Cavity clean-out
  • Pheromone neutralization & future hive prevention.
  • Installation of a temporary water barrier

Types of roofs we open:

  • Asphalt  Shingles
  • Concrete Tile
  • Wood Singles
  • Clay Tile
  • Metal
  • Slate

Wall Hive Removal

Hives within the walls are usually located between the studs, in a spacial cavity that is created between outside wall and inside wall.  Bees grow the hive over time starting at the top and expanding down until they run out of room. 

Removal Steps:

  • Opening of the wall to expose the hive
  • Removal of worker bees, brood, drones and the queen
  • Removal of wax, honey, pollen, nectar and propolis
  • Cavity clean out
  • Pheromone neutralization & future hive prevention.
  • Prepare wall for repair

Types of walls we open:

  • Stucco
  • Brick
  • Wood Shingles
  • Wood/Metal Panels
  • Horizontal Strips

Vent Hive Removal

Vents are tricky... Very rarely do bees  build a hive in the piping of the vent.  In 95% of the cases, they use the vent as an access point into the framework of the structure.  The actual hive itself can be found in the wall, roof, or even between floors.

Removal Steps:

  • Structural opening to expose the hive
  • Removal of worker bees, brood, drones and the queen
  • Removal of wax, honey, pollen, nectar and propolis
  • Cavity clean out
  • Pheromone neutralization & future hive prevention.
  • Prepare structural opening for repair

Types of vents we open:

  • Power/Static Vents
  • Attic Intake Vent
  • Roof/Wall Louvers

Soffit Hive Removal

Soffit hives are located on the outside of the structure, in the space created by an inclosed eave.  These hives have a tendency of expanding sideways.  They are usually removed from the underside.

Removal Steps:

  • Opening of the soffit to expose the hive
  • Removal of worker bees, brood, drones and the queen
  • Removal of wax, honey, pollen, nectar and propolis
  • Cavity clean out
  • Pheromone neutralization & future hive prevention.
  • Prepare soffit for repair

Types of soffits we open:

  • Wood
  • Vinyl
  • Metal

  • Removal of worker bees, brood, drones and the queen
