Bee Removal in the Northampton 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 bees nest at your property or workplace the Pest Professionals in Northampton can assist. We provide you with immediate help in two very practical steps:

The no obligation phone consultation service applies to both domestic and business customers in the Northampton area. No bee issue or bees nest removal job is too large or too small for us to look at. Where relevant we are able to advise on any immediate action required to safeguard your health, property or belongings in advance of a visit. If a visit is called for 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 called for.

Bee Friendly Pest Control

Bees form complex social colonies with a single fertile queen and are an exceptionally valuable pollinator. Because of this our primary concern as pest controllers when bee’s nest removal is required 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 usually assist in this task.

Worker bees form the vast bulk of the colony and their numbers can reach over 30,000 in the height of the season. Some workers remain with the queen to tend her, nourish the larvae, produce honey, create new wax honeycombs for the larvae and defend the nest. Older 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 regarded as pests and (unless provoked) will not attack you. The sting of worker bees is barbed and can not be retracted, and holds a poison sac which continues to pump venom.

A small minority of people are hyper allergic to this venom and if a hive is in close proximity to people, for example, nearby to your house, or even in it (chimneys being a prime candidate), action may be needed to relocate it. This must only ever be undertaken by an experienced pest controller or bee keeper, both of whom will put on special protective clothing.

Eradication is very much a last option for a pest controller, and will depend on his ability to take out the honeycomb and/or seal the nest after the work is done. There is a significant risk of secondary poisoning if robber bees access 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 readily distinguished from each other. Honey bees are usually 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.
