A thriving bee nest can house anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand bees at any one time. If your beehive is at this stage, it can be extremely dangerous to be around, and you need to get it removed as soon as possible.
Fortunately, if you're reading this, chances are that the bee nest on your property is yet to enter its final phase. With that said, bumble bee and honey bee nests can grow very fast, you don't have as much time as you think you do.
Bees are arguably the most important insect in our ecosystem. They are responsible for pollinating flowers, plants, and even the food crops that we all eat. However, despite the many advantages to having bees around, when they nest on your property, they can become an inconvenience.
And if they are not dealt with in a timely manner, the risks and dangers you will face can escalate quickly. Some of the risks you'll be exposed to include:
And if you're a business, on top of the above, a high bee activity on your business premises can affect your customers and lead to loss of revenue.
The best way to tell if you have a beehive on your property is to see it with your own eyes. In some cases, you'll see beehives outdoors in places such as under tree branches or within bird boxes.
Unfortunately, not all bees in the Reigate area nest outdoors due to the UK's harsh weather conditions throughout the year. That's why many bee species prefer to nest indoors in places such as the loft spaces of your residential or business premises. If you suspect that your beehive is inside your property, here are some of the additional signs you should look and listen out for:

Unless you have the correct protective clothing, equipment, and plenty of experience dealing with beehives, yes, hiring a bee removal specialist is essential.

Moreover, the pest control service is minimally disruptive and shouldn't take more than an hour.
The best way to keep safe with an active beehive on your property is to keep your distance. Unlike wasps, honey bees won't attack you unless they feel threatened, so staying as far away as you can from the nest is generally enough to keep you safe. However, if the beehive is located in an area of your property that you have to go through on a regular basis, you'll need to take some additional safety measures. We recommend that you:
No, you don't need to do anything prior to your beehive removal in Reigate. This includes clearing up the space around the beehive (if you know where it is). On the day of your appointment, our experts will take care of everything for you. The goal from now until their visit is to keep you and everyone safe from the unwanted bee colony.
