Palm Bay Honey Bee Nest removal from Tree

Palm Bay External Honey Bee Nest
Can you see the honey bee nest, exposed and in the palm frond? It looks like it has 3 'plates' of comb, and is what we consider an 'external' nest architecture.

Most European honey bees (the gentle, tame bee we keep in our white hive boxes) build nests inside cavities, such as hollow tree trunks and such. The African Honey Bee ( a wild subspecies that is illegal to keep here in Florida), readily builds such external nests. We now have so many wild African honey bees in Brevard County, that I tell beekeepers, if you want to catch wild bees, just put out empty cardboard boxes, as African bees will gladly appreciate your efforts and build a colony inside the box within a week or two!. 

We are encountering more and more 'mean' bees in Brevard, and we even have some neighborhoods noted with higher than average numbers of Africanized Honey Bees, meaning we have to practice very careful methods, so that we don't threaten neighbors and pets.

If you have a colony of pest honey bees or any stinging insect, please give us a call or email. I am a stinging insect entomologist, with years of education, experience and knowledge and can provide you with a proper removal so you never have to deal with an infestation again. I carry all licenses and insurance to protect you, my valuable client. Beware of unlicensed operators, often beekeepers, that are trying to earn extra money by performing improper removals, resulting in mass sting events that threaten residents with sting risk liabilities and damaged premises. 

Remember, bee removal is considered pest control, and any inspection, advice, or removal procedures require licenses. We have seen many citizens, wronged by unlicensed removals.  Don't get stung by an illegal operator, it could cost you thousands! 

Please, don't attempt a Brevard County Bee Removal, 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. I've written 2 blog posts about these dangerous bee removals.. go here and here to read this valuable information.. It might just save you and your neighbors from getting stung or spending hundreds of dollars too much!
