Live removal of exterior hive in tree or on a wall that can be removed and transported to bee farm.
Live bee removal interior of a wall, soffit or any place that requires creating an opening to remove bee hive, bees will be collected and transported to bee farm.
Bee hive injection is for bee hives than cannot be accessed and cannot be removed alive a chemical injection is applied to destroy the hive and sealed. We only recommend this as a last resort because the bees will die and the brood, wax and honey will remain in the structure causing flies to form and possible strong odors due to rotting brood.
Chemical bee extraction is performed in some cases where their is no way to access or remove the bee hive or the customer cannot afford a live removal as a chemical application can be much faster and thus cause less. In these cases the bees will all die, the comb must be discarded and the honey will not be usable.
Why perform a live bee removal Miami?
Economic Importance of bees
Performing a live bee removal in Miami is an important way secure our livelihood and protect our economy. It is much more important than removing a threat from your home or business as the removal has both health and economic implications.
How you remove it is also important, an untrained person disturbing or removing a bee hive can cause serous injury or death to themselves and others as other people for up to a mile from the hive can be stung and if they are allergic to bee stings this can cause Anaphylactic Shock resulting in death.
Removing a bee hive is not a do it yourself job nor is it a job for handymen, only a trained bee keeper or pest control professional who is licensed and insured. You should NOT attempt touch or remove of a live bee hive in Miami.
One out of three bites of the foods you eat directly or indirectly depends on pollination by honey bees.
According to the Florida Department of Agriculture
Florida’s honey industry is consistently ranked among the top five in the nation with an annual worth of $13 million. In addition, the Florida honey bee industry benefits our state’s fruit and vegetable industry by providing an estimated $20 million in increased production numbers created by managed pollination services that are available in no other way. There are over 100 varieties of popular fruits and vegetables that use pollination to ensure fruitful crops.
The reason honey bees are so important as pollinators is that they actively seek out flowers with pollen, unlike other pollinators like bats and birds who are primarily interested in nectar.
Agriculture is a major industry in the United States with a direct connection to one in every twelve jobs.
Bee Keepers Role
Beekeepers have provided a critical service to U.S. agriculture by moving their hives seasonally to pollinate a wide variety of crops across the U.S.
According to a May 2013 report by the USDA, pollination contributes between $20 and $30 billion in economic value to agriculture each year.
Without the yield increases made possible by commercial pollination services through beekeepers, the prices of food would rise, our farms would become less competitive in a global economy, and the security and variety of our food supply would be diminished.
Africanized Honey Bees
When it comes to bee removal in Miami it is not a do it yourself job, we have a high amount of Africanized honey bees or “killer Bees” in South Florida, and there are no physical characteristics that distinguish a European honey bees be from an africanized honey bee the problem is a genetic hybridization that occurs between the African and European races of honey bees since they are the same species of honey bee. The term “Africanized” traditionally is applied to all progeny resulting from mating between European and African bees. The acronym “AHB” is now a commonly used, practical, identification term.
African honey bee have adapted well in South Florida due to the tropical environment as compared to that of the European bee. African honey bees entered South Texas in the early 1990s, and since then they have been disbursed throughout many of the Southwestern states.
African honey bees where first discovered in the State of Florida in 2001 around the Port of Tampa. By 2003 African bees had established colonies all over the Tampa area, and since then they have spread throughout Florida. Today it is estimated that more than 70% of the wild bee colonies in South Florida are African honey bees.
The Danger Of Disturbing Bee Hives
African honey bees defend there nest far more aggressively than does the European honey bee. African honey bees respond quickly to disturbances by humans or animals, they can sense a disturbance in excess of 50 feet from the nest. They even can sense vibrations from power equipment more than 100 feet from the nest. African honey bees can chase a people or pets up to a mile or more. Their aggressive defensive behavior is response to their many biological competitors, including honey badgers, bee eaters and even humans, in their native place. This is why it is so important not to disturb a live bee hive but rather have a professional perform the live removal bee removal Miami.
What To Do If You Have A Bee Hive
Education is the best defenses against African bee attack. If wild swarms are found near residences or close to domestic animals (horses, cows, poultry, hogs, dogs) do not attempt to remove it yourself, you should call certified and trained pest control operator to remove it. Understanding the behavioral differences between European honey bees and African wild bees is critical to understanding African bees and what do if a bee nest is encountered. Never disturb a swarm or colony of bees contact us.
Colony Collapse Disorder
Despite extensive research, Colony Collapse Disorder CCD has not been linked to any specific trigger. Parasitic mites, fungal infections and other diseases, poor nutrition, pesticide exposure and even climate change all have been implicated, but attempts to explain the roles of these individual factors have failed to produce conclusive or satisfying answers. Even less is known about native bees and the factors that influence their health.
Below are some of the latest research and facts about colony Collapse Disorder CCD.
Since no one knows for certain why colony collapse disorder is occurring we should be doing our part not contribute to the demise of bees and contribute to their survival by collecting as many bees as possible and relocating them to farms operated by beekeepers that can later turn around and rent them to farmers for pollinating.
A Live bee removal in Miami costs no more than a pesticide extermination and removal and is a win win win scenario for everyone. You get the bees out of your home, a beekeeper gets free bees, the bees can have a new home and farmers can use them to continue to produce food, and we get free honey to take home.
