We Love Bees
At JG, WE LOVE BEES! Although they are not protected, we do everything we can to remove bees without harming them, this goes for Bumble bees too. However, if bees, Bumble or Honey, are in an inaccessible area or pose an immediate Health and Safety risk they may need to be destroyed.

Depending on the outcome of the survey, and your acceptance of our quote, we will either relocate or eradicate the nest. Below is a very basic outline of the principles of the treatment. As every removal is different, your specific quote will contain job specific details.
On arrival, we will carry out a survey to establish the location of the nest and to see if there is more than one nest present.
We assess the area to find out what potential risks the bees nest might cause if disturbed.
We assess the area to see if the nest can be relocated to prevent destruction.
If the nest cannot be relocated, we will look at the possibility of carrying out an insecticidal spray to eradicate the nest.
Relocating Bumble Bees
Whilst wearing relevant PPE we will expose the nest, either with hands or tools, and gently lift the nest (with queen) away from the nesting site.
This will then be placed into a suitable container. On removal, we will allow the bees time to settle, secure the container and remove from site and rehome at a suitable site.
Relocating Honey Bees
Relocating nest if honey bees – whilst wearing relevant PPE we will expose the nest location, either with hands or tools, and gently lift the nest (with queen) away from the nesting site.
Again, we use a suitable container (usually bigger). If the bees have settled on a branch or fixed structure that can be reached safely we will place the container under the swarm slowly, whilst lifting it to cover bees or cut bees from structure and secure the container. Where ever it is possible we will relocate the bees to a willing bee sanctuary or failing this in a wooded area at least 1-2 miles from the collection site (which prevents them from coming back). The few remaining bees will move on and join a new colony or die.
If bees cannot be relocated, as they inaccessible or an immediate health and safety risk, they can be treated using a chemical dust. The entrance holes must be blocked off a few days later to prevent risk of contaminating other swarms or hives.
