Bee Removal in the Leicester 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 a problem with bees or a nuisance bees nest at your property or work place the Pest Professionals in Leicester can help. We provide you with instant help in two very practical steps:

Bee Friendly Pest Control

Bees form complex social colonies with a solitary fertile queen and are an extremely valuable pollinator. As such our primary concern 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 receive the bee hive and maintain it, and we can in most cases assist in this task.

Worker bees form the vast bulk of the colony and their numbers can make it 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. More mature workers go out from the nest in the hunt 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, such as nearby to the house, or even in it (chimneys being a prime candidate), action may be required to move it. This should only ever be attempted by an experienced pest controller or bee keeper, both of whom will put on special protective clothing.

Eradication is really a last resort for a pest controller, and will be dependent on his ability to take out the honeycomb and/or seal the nest shortly after the work is completed. There is a significant danger of secondary poisoning if robber bees gain access to a previously poisoned nest and bring the insecticide back to their home colony.

How To Discriminate 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 normally dark brown, with a pale orange/amber band and, notably, they are hairy. Wasps possess bright yellow and black stripes and have a constricted waist and smooth skin.
