Melbourne, Fla: Honey Bees Swarming Dryer Vent

Melbourne, Fla. Apartments: Honey Bees Swarming a dryer vent

This is a common situation for us in Spring & Early summer. Apartment home residents are suddenly sharing their living space with hundreds of honey bees. Management calls us (We perform property management bee removals for most of the Mgt. firms in Florida), and we find a honey bee swarm has moved in to the space AROUND the dryer vent.

The first thing I check for is caulk or expanding foam, usually applied by a well meaning staff member in an attempt to block bee movement. But in reality, they've made the problem worse, by sealing Thousands of bees INSIDE the apartment home!!! Look closely at the photo above and you'll see the caulk.

Brevard County has had an influx of Africanized Killer Bees overtake the European races that used to dominate the feral populations. As such, Space Coast Bee Removals should only be performed by bee specialists that hold Florida Pest Control Certifications and are experienced beekeepers. Our firm owners hold Univ. of Florida Graduate Entomology degrees and are considered top bee removal experts by our peers, worldwide.

Please, don't attempt sealing of bees inside structures, as they can be deadly, even swarms have attacked us since Killer Bees are now here. We've had fatalities occur in Florida because of improper stinging insect removal techniques.

We service Space Coast Apartments bee removals and Multi-family properties daily and carry all necessary insurances and certifications.
