    Bees Buzzing Around Your Orlando Home or Business? We Can Help

    Bees are tricky animals to identify and even trickier to remove. They are important parts of the world’s ecosystem, producing honey and beeswax and pollinating flowers and vegetation. Many people suffering from a bee infestation react by attempting to eradicate the population. This is a complicated process because it is near impossible to identify the species of bee that has taken up residence on the eaves of your building. Some people have even attempted removing bees with wasp spray, not recognizing the difference between the two. This serves only to aggravate the bees and does nothing to solve the problem long-term.

    Once they have decided to make use of your residence or office, the bees begin to grow in large numbers into a full hive. Not all species are equally dangerous. The Africanized Honeybee is one of the more aggressive breeds. Their poison is no different from that of the European Honeybee, for example, but their sustained pattern of attack and large hive protection radius make them threatening for pets and humans. They also follow their victims for long distances and attack in larger numbers. It is important to call in a Bee Specialist to determine which species you are dealing with and to evade this sort of mishap.

    Removing Bee Swarms in Orlando

    Bee swarms are essentially relocation missions for overpopulated colonies. When a beehive is thriving, particularly around seasonal changes, the bees become agitated and a group of them remove to a new location. The weaker colonies, the ones that have been affected by starvation, or that have suffered the loss of their queen, will not swarm until they are more robust. These swarms occur in two different possible formations, primary and secondary. The primary swarms are conducted by a queen, and are formed from an impressive population of worker bees, while the secondary swarms are led by virgin females, and have fewer members than the primary one.

    Since the bees that are found in a swarm do not have to protect young bees or food supplies, it is easier to approach and remove a bee swarm, but that does not mean that you should attempt to do so without the proper knowledge and gear. During the swarming period, the group will discover a temporary resting place before sending scouts out to choose a more permanent location.

    Honeycomb Removal and Bee Control in Florida

    Many companies offer bee removal services, but Omega Animal Removal is one of the only Orlando, Florida companies with scientifically trained professionals and high quality products. The most important element of hive removal is the understanding that all traces of pheromones must also be removed. This can sometimes require the replacement of soffits, wooden decking and siding. The traces left in these materials from the beeswax that soaks into the wood contain pheromones that rapidly attract new bees to come and inhabit the previous hive site.

    In order to perform a complete and successful population removal, our Omega Animal Removal Bee Specialist will arrive with appropriate gear and materials to methodically eradicate the infestation and sanitize the area from future swarms. Our process is held in such high regard that we provide a Lifetime Guarantee, promising you will never have to worry about a repeated infestation.
