Professional Bee Control Scunthorpe And Grimsby

Bees are an important part of our habitat, and they’re less aggressive than wasps and other insect pests. However, when bees swarm, they can become a problem.

While bees will only sting when frightened, this can occur in crowded areas or during busy summer months.

So, if you notice bees at home or business premises, then you need Briarquest Pest Control. We offer safe, humane relocation for bee colonies throughout Scunthrope, Hull, Grimsby and the surrounding areas.

Our team offers structural bee nest removal to ensure the entire colony is relocated to a new place and avoid structural damage to your property. Call 01724 376330 to find out more and get a quote for your bee removal project today.

Types Of Bees Found In The UK

There are several species of bees in the UK, but the two that most people are aware of are the honey bee and the bumblebee.

Honey bees will quite often cause a problem when deciding to set up a new home under your soffits, in your roof space, in air vents, behind brickwork, and inside chimneys.

Sometimes, a swarm can easily be removed; on other occasions, it becomes a more serious problem involving what is known as a chop out, where a builder or roofer is required to attend and gain access to the bee colony.

We can safely re-home bees and their nests, arranging to make good any brickwork, roofing or chimney problems.

The key with honey bee swarms is to act fast, as once they get established and start packing the hive with honey, things will only get worse.

The other common species of bee in the UK is the bumblebee. Bumblebees are not really aggressive as long as you leave them alone.

Their nests look like little collections of milky marbles, and males will quite often loiter outside nests in gangs, waiting for new queens to emerge. Bumblebees have been known to nest in lofts and under sheds or under garden waste and in compost heaps. 

Other types of bees you might encounter include the common carder bee, mining bees, mason bees and many more.

Within each species, there are different designations of bees, such as worker bees, which are females that aren’t the queen but live in the same hive.

Some of these bees will tunnel underground, while others fly more openly. Some are solitary bees, while others spend most of their time in their bee nest with others.

Whatever type of bees you’re dealing with, our team can help keep you safe while ensuring the bees are not harmed, thanks to our safe bee nest removal services.

How We Deal With Bees And Remove Bee Nests

When we need to remove bees from a property, we aim to offer an effective solution that’s safe and doesn’t harm the bees or the structure. As many as 25% of the species of bee in the UK are endangered, but despite popular belief, none of them are protected by law.

Still, Briarquest Pest Control firmly believes that the UK needs more bees, not less, but that they need to be located away from humans for their safety and ours. Where possible, we recommend you build a bee hotel in your garden or install air bricks with gaps to allow bees to nest in the brickwork. While you might see the occasional bee, you won’t have to deal with as much disturbance as you would with wasps.

If the bees are in an area that’s unsafe for them or those around them, such as a school or a busy home, we can help to remove the bees. Our team can carry out structural bee nest removal, cutting into chimneys, wall cavities and other structures to be able to fully remove the bee hive.

We can then remove the nest and bees to another area where there are other colonies living safely without much human interaction.

Additionally, we also offer wasp control and wasp nest removal, but if you believe the issue is bees and it turns out to be wasps, a call-out charge will be applied.
