All About Beehive Removal
Believe it or not, but ants are actually relatives of bees and wasps. Just like these insects, bees form colonies and are known for working together to achieve common goals. Colonies can range in size from a few dozen to millions. What starts out as a small ant colony can quickly grow into a large infestation.
Ants are found on every continent, excluding Antarctica. They are highly adaptable to any environment they encounter, which can make them a tricky problem. Their ability to work together and divide up labor also makes them highly intelligent. It is almost impossible to eliminate a colony of bees unless you call in the help of a professional team of hive removal specialists to remove bees from the premises.
While most swarms of bees are not extremely dangerous to humans, there are a few that can cause physical harm. Species like fire ants can bite and cause burning stinging pain that is extremely uncomfortable.
Why are there so many bees in Chicago?
Chicago and the surrounding area provide an ideal habitat for honey bee colonies and honey bee nests, and it is one of the metroplex’s most important areas for bee removal services. Mild winters allow bee hives to survive with fewer resources, which contributes to bee colony success. The numerous acres of wetlands support a plethora of vegetation and honey bee-friendly flowers, increasing the survivability of wild honey bee nests.
In addition, the area has many backyard beekeepers who, unfortunately, have honeybee hives that swarm and add to feral honey bee populations, necessitating honey bee control.
As an example, in North East Chicago alone, we remove 30-50 owl boxes of honey bees each summer! That is a plethora of new bee hives!
Older homes in the area also provide plenty of space for honey bees to build hives or establish new bee colonies. Homes were not built to be as airtight as they are today, and they would “breathe,” which is a nice way of saying there are lots of little holes and gaps for honey bees to build a new bee nest.
Many of the bee colonies for which we provide live bee control in the area are established bee nests. Some of the most difficult removal jobs we’ve had were honeybee hives, which were frequently found in older wooden uninsulated garage walls, under the house or garage foundation, or in the eaves of ranch style homes. We see homes infiltrated after squirrels or tree rats gnaw into soffits or eaves, providing the ideal entryway for new honeybee swarms to establish new honeybee hives. We do find some bee colonies in dying trees, particularly cottonwood trees, hackberry trees, and elm trees, as these hollow out and provide the ideal environment for honeybees to establish new honeybee colonies, necessitating safe honeybee removal services.
