Bee Removal & Management Services
Our swarm removals are done free of charge and typically done the same day, however, do to the amount of swarm relocations that we do, sometimes it may take up to 48 hours. We will need to verify that it is a swarm and not a hive. Just send us a quick picture! And DO NOT SPRAY poison on them.
WHY CALL FOR SWARM REMOVAL?
Bee swarms are a public safety issue. In the face of a perceived threat, people are quick to turn to exterminators who use pesticides and poisons. Killing the bees is not the answer! Bees are an irreplaceable part of our eco-system.
STARTING AT $200
Our fees are dependent on hive location. After the hive and location have been verified we will provide you with a custom quote.
CALL BEFORE YOU SPRAY!
If you spray the bees, the removal costs will be 3 times more because the equipment we use will then become contaminated and will have to be discarded after the removal to keep from contaminating other hives.
Once bees are exposed to pesticides or poison, the bees must be removed and quarantined, the honey is ruined, and the environment is a little worse off than it was before.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR REMOVAL
We preform live removals of the hive of honey bees. We will remove the comb, queen, as well as the other bees in the colony and place them into a transfer hive to transport/ relocate them back to our farm. Please note that it is normal to see bees flying around the area for up to 2 weeks as there are foraging bees out looking for pollen and nectar that will return to find their hive gone. They will dissipate within 2 weeks of the removal. If you are still seeing a vast amount of bees in the area after the removal has been completed, please contact us so we can reassess the situation.
Payment is due at or before the time of service
No refunds will be given on completed removals
repairs are not included
we offer a 100% bee back guarantee for non-payment
If you have any questions or concerns about your removal, please don't hesitate to contact us
Did you know you can get an agricultural tax exemption for beekeeping? It could save you thousands of dollars, covering the cost of investment in your first qualifying year. We can coach you through the application process or manage it entirely to ensure you're compliant with the tax law.
Jackass Honey Farms will then supply your land with the hives and bees to qualify your property. Take one of our beekeeping classes or hire us as your Beekeepers to maintain the hives.
