Typical places we find bee colonies include chimneys, sheds, and cavity walls. Unfortunately, many pest control organisations will apply treatments to eradicate the bees before removal.

Safely extract and relocate entire, live bee colonies

Located in the North Hertfordshire area, our professionally qualified beekeeping experts will quickly and safely extract and relocate live swarms and colonies of bees from your premises. The bees will be quarantined to ensure they are both happy and healthy before being relocated to an apiary where they will be tended to, and able to continue to produce local honey for the community.

The Honeybee Man are also qualified to safely control and remove wasp and hornet nests from your property. We are based in Stotfold and provide a local service to the surrounding areas to quickly remove and treat your wasp and hornet infestations.

Honeybee swarms:

There are many reasons why honeybees swarm – the most common being when they’ve outgrown their current home. When bees swarm they are very unlikely (in most cases) to sting or attack – in fact, when they swarm like this they are generally docile with no nest or hive to defend. However, it’s still important to take caution.


Settled honeybee colonies: 

Only beekeepers with training and professional equipment are able to remove bee colonies effectively and safely. Swarms which have not been dealt with quickly will often take up more permanent residency.
