Bee Removal in the Derby Area


We would always encourage you to live with bees and while we are happy to re-locate swarms of honey bees outside the nest, please note that on ethical grounds Pest Professionals will not attempt eradication of honey bees under any circumstances. If you have a honey bee colony in an inaccessible place such as a chimney, we can put you in touch with a specialist relocation service who will discuss the options with you – just email . We will also only ever consider eradication of bumble bees as an absolute last resort in rare situations such as where life can be demonstrated to be in danger or if important work cannot be completed without action being taken, and we will always look at relocation first.

If you have an issue with bees or a worrying bees nest at your home or work place the Pest Professionals in Derby can assist. We provide you with immediate service in two very practical stages:

The no obligation telephone consultation service applies to both domestic and business customers in the Derby region. No bee problem or bees nest removal job is too large or too small for us to consider. Where appropriate we have the ability to advise on any urgent action required to protect your health, property or possessions in advance of a visit. If a visit is required we let you know if there will be a call out fee and also advise on the probable costs of any bee removal should it be needed.

Bee Friendly Pest Control

Bees form complex social colonies with a single fertile queen and are an incredibly important pollinator. Because of this our primary priority as pest controllers when bee’s nest removal is necessary is to keep the bee hive alive and intact.

The key is to locate an experienced beekeeper who will take on the bee hive and take care of it, and we can normally assist in this process.

Worker bees form the vast bulk of the colony and their numbers can get to over 30,000 in the height of the season. Some workers remain with the queen to tend her, feed the larvae, produce honey, produce new wax honeycombs for the larvae and secure the nest. Older workers go out from the nest in the search for sources of nectar and pollen. The queen may lay a million eggs in her lifetime.

Bees are generally not considereded pests and (unless provoked) will not attack you. The sting of worker bees is barbed and can not be retracted, and carries a poison sac which continues to pump venom.

A tiny minority of individuals are hyper allergic to this venom and if a hive is in close proximity to people, for instance, nearby to your house, or even in it (chimneys being a top candidate), action may be required to relocate it. This should only ever be attempted by an experienced pest controller or bee keeper, each of whom will wear special protective clothing.

Eradication is really a last option for a pest controller, and will depend on his ability to remove the honeycomb and/or seal the nest shortly after the main task is completed. There is a big danger of secondary poisoning if robber bees access a previously poisoned nest and carry the insecticide back to their home colony.

How To Tell The Difference Between Bees and Wasps

Bee Pest Removal Wasp Pest Removal
Both bees and wasps are members of the Hymenoptera order of insects, but they can be easily distinguished from each other. Honey bees are commonly dark brown, with a light orange/amber band and, notably, they are hairy. Wasps possess bright yellow and black stripes and have a narrow waist and smooth skin.
