Honey Bee Removal in Atlanta

Decatur, Georgia hone bee removal job

Decatur, Georgia hone bee removal job

Honey bees are essential insects, especially in Georgia. They are the primary pollinators of many agricultural crops and are therefore essential to our state's economy.

Unfortunately, honey bee populations have become stressed in the past decade or so. This may be due to a virus or other disease, certain pesticides used to control other insects, pest-resistant hybrid plants, or a combination of reasons. Scientists aren't certain. Whatever the reason, whenever possible, honey bee colonies in places where they're not bothering anyone really should be left alone. They do a great deal more good than harm.

That being said, when honey bees get into homes or other human-occupied buildings, or when they build their nests near athletic fields or other places where people congregate, they have to be removed. There are many people who are so allergic to bee stings that even one sting can be fatal to them, and even people who aren't sensitive to bee stings usually prefer not being stung by them. Bee stings are very painful.

Rid-A-Critter provides honey bee removal services throughout Metro Atlanta and its surrounding area. We use advanced technologies such as infrared cameras, combined with old-fashioned hard work, to find and remove honey bees and their nests with a minimum of mess, even when they're in locations such as inside the walls or ceilings of your home.

Honey Bee Biology

Honey bees are true bees, unlike many species of hornets and wasps that people mistakenly call bees. Honey bees are also highly developed insects with a fascinating social system. Colonies usually number in the hundreds or thousands of individuals, all of whose activities are regulated in some way by the queen.

Bees also have at least two "languages" that we know of. Like most insects, bees communicate by pheromones, which are chemical messengers that they secrete and that other honey bees can interpret. But bees also have an elaborate language of movements by which they can communicate things like the direction and distance to a source of food or a threat to the colony.

Honey bees' ability to communicate allows also them to mount immediate, large-scale attacks against anyone or anything that they perceive to be a threat -- including people. Although not particularly aggressive if they're left alone, once honey bees decide that you're a threat to the colony, they will attack in great numbers and with precision and accuracy that would make an Air Force commander proud.

Many times, the hardest part of a honey bee removal job is finding the nest. Honeys bees usually build their nests in void areas such as those inside walls or ceilings. The actual nests may be quite far from the visible entry holes. Finding the nest is important because honey bee nests must be physically removed. Without the bees to cool the nest with their wings, the wax and honey will melt. That can cause damage to the home as well as attract other animals and insects.

Back in the old days, the best we could do to find the nests was listen for buzzing with a stethoscope (or even an ear against the wall). We still use those old-school methods for the easy honey bee control jobs where it's pretty obvious where the nest is. But for those truly difficult jobs, we have more advanced ways of finding the nest.

Rid-A-Critter now uses high-tech gadgetry, including infrared imaging cameras, that enable us to precisely locate a honey bee nest. Knowing exactly where a nest is allows us to remove it with a minimum amount of mess and fuss. If we have to open a wall or ceiling, we know right where to open it.

Our high-tech equipment is just one of the ways that Rid-A-Critter is revolutionizing the animal removal and wildlife management industry in Greater Atlanta.

If you have a problem with honey bees, please contact us for a speedy, scientific solution. You'll be glad you did.
