free BEE REMOVAL AND HIVE HOSTING FOR SAINT LOUIS AND SURROUNDING COUNTIES

We remove honey bees, alive, from yards, homes, and business structures and relocate them for free! To preserve their beneficial purpose in nature, honeybees are moved to our apiary where they can continue their work of pollinating our food supply without damaging buildings or creating a stinging hazard to inhabitants, pets, and children. 

St. Louis Bee Company understands the vital role that bees play in our food sources and the environment. While there has been a rapid decline of honeybees in recent years, St. Louis Bee Company is dedicated to being a part of the solution through the live rescue of honeybees. We will relocate them to our own bee yard or to other local beekeepers. 


We will remove bees in Saint Louis and surrounding counties at no charge to you. 


If you have a swarm you would like removed, or think you have a swarm, please contact us immediately. You can call us at (314) 732-1180 or send an e-mail to: info@stlouisbees.com with your phone number and we will call you back shortly. You can also send us a message by clicking HERE


We only remove honeybees. We DO NOT remove yellow jackets, wasps, or other insects.


Please be sure to identify your insects before calling or filling out this form.


Important:  

  • Do NOT spray a pesticide or any other chemicals. This could provoke the bees, and is completely unnecessary. Also, given the difficulties faced by all bees including honey bees, we need to take care to preserve the ones we have – or look forward to massively rising food prices, as well as failure of flower and garden crops.

  • Do not throw sticks, rocks or other items at the swarm in an attempt to drive it away!  You'll only aggravate the bees!

Ethical Honey Bee Swarm Removal and Relocation

When the weather warms up, about half the honey bees and old queen tend to migrate from their hives to find new homes. This usually happens in the spring, but it can also happen during other times of the year which means for St. Louis residents it can represent a dangerous situation. This is because the migration causes a swarm of bees which may rise upwards of 20,000 from a single hive to find a new place to live.

When this happens, you will need the professional services of a St. Louis swarm removal company to safely pull the bees from your home or property. While honeybees are not aggressive and stings are rare, they often occur when they are migrating from one hive to form another. This can be especially dangerous for those who are allergic to bee stings. Accidentally angering a swarm of bees may lead to illness and in rare cases death.

Complications from New Bee Hives

When honeybees move onto your property, the complications they present will depend on the proximity to your home. Hives in the yard generally present little danger unless you or a member of your family is allergic to bee stings.

However, when a hive is created in your home the complications rise considerably. First, the bees may find ways into the living area of your home which can be very problematic. However, what is more concerning is that the honey produced will drip into the interior structure and cause long-term damage. It will not take too long before the damage from the buildup of the honey becomes apparent and you may be looking at hundreds if not thousands of dollars in repair bills.

In addition, your home or property will become the permanent home of the honeybees even if the entire hive leaves because new bee swarms will simply move in unless the area is treated. Because most honeybees are docile and only sting in response to a perceived threat, most people look to have safe removal performed as opposed to the extermination of the hive. This is where St. Louis honeybee removal companies work for you to relocate the hive away from your home.

How Safe Removal Works for You

St. Louis swarm removal works when experienced beekeepers wearing the proper, protective gear simply transfer the bees from their hive to a portable container which is often a wooden box. Once the queen and most of the worker bees are inside, they will transfer them to another hive that is safely away from your residence. The remaining bees will disperse because their queen is gone and you can have the area sealed to prevent future intrusions.

By using the approved St. Louis honeybee removal system as employed by trained beekeepers, your home and property will be free of bees that may present a danger to you or members of your household. The sooner you act, the faster the bees will be relocated and you can seal off the area so that a new hive is not created.
