We specialise in live bee removal from wall cavities.
Bee colonies that establish themselves inside the walls of houses and other inconvenient sites close to people can be a real nuisance.
Unwanted honey bee activity in suburban settings can make everyday jobs like gardening and hanging out washing unpleasant.
Removal of established honey bee colonies is complex and at times difficult and cannot be left to inexperienced beekeepers.
Honey bee colonies can also cause significant damage to the structure of your house if they are poisoned by a pest control contractor.
Dead, poisoned bee hives are attacked by a honeybee pest called small hive beetle. The small hive beetle larvae burrow through the remaining comb and liquify it. The resulting liquid will seep through your walls and into the interior of your house.
Removal techniques vary depending on the type of construction of the building. Bee removals from timber buildings can be carried out externally provided the cladding can be removed. Removals from brick veneer buildings are generally carried out through the internal walls.
Our aim is to cause minimal damage to cladding and lining. We do not repair or close up cavities when we are finished, the homeowner will need to engage a tradesman to restore the structure. Mt. Coramba Apiculture specialises in work for landlords and strata managers.
Honey bees tend to settle in any cavity that is large enough for them to call home. We can remove bees from objects such as lounge chairs, barbecues, possum boxes, electrical meter boxes, garden statues and tree cavities.
Mt. Coramba Apiculture have full public liability insurance and years of experience.
