Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are the Products Harmful to My Family or the Environment?
A: All of the products used by Pro Pacific Bee Removal are EPA approved. All technicians are licensed applicators and are very mindful of the environment and your family during application. Products used are safe enough that you do not have to leave the house during application.
Q: How long does the removal process take?
A: This depends on how old your hive is. If your bee hive is one to seven days old, you could be done within 45 to 90 minutes from the time your service technician arrives. If your bee hive is seven days or older and inside of the structure, you will still need the extermination which would take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes plus a removal of the honey comb. Typically honey comb removal requires opening the structure and repairing the structure afterward which is scheduled one to three days away from your extermination. The length of time to remove honey comb depends on how much honey you have, however we usually estimate two to five hours.
Q: Do You Remove Hives and Honeycomb?
A: Yes, we provided honeycomb removal and repair services.
Q: Why Should I Remove the Bee Hive?
A: To prevent future infestations of bees, wax moths, rodents, ants, and other pests. Bee hive removal is also necessary to prevent melting honey that would drip and cause noticeable stains and structural damages.
Q: Why Did Bees Choose my Home, Trees or Bush?
A: Bees will hive in anything that has some type of cavity or space that offers protection from the outside elements. This includes walls, roofs, chimneys, birdhouses, dog houses, trash cans, cardboard boxes, irrigation boxes, trees, bushes and barbecues. After the bees are removed from these locations you should still expect to see residual activity for five to seven days.
Q: When are Bees Dangerous?
A: Bees are only dangerous when they are defending their colony, nest, honey and brood. They are not dangerous when foraging for pollen or collecting water.
Q: How Can I Tell the Difference Between the Africanized Honey Bee and the European Honey Bee?
A: You can’t! It requires DNA testing and elaborate measurement tests in order to distinguish the two. Again, simply give all bees you encounter the respect you would give any wild creature. When the European and Africanized honey bees interbreed, we deal with a hybridized bee displaying some characteristics of each breed.
