Honey Bee Control
Honey bees and other stinging insects can be a significant problem for gas and diesel station owners and managers. Honey bees seek out the many crevices and voids in buildings and trees and may establish a hive in an unwanted location, endangering people and property.
They can also swarm — a normal process that allows for new colonies to be established — and cause an immediate problem if the swarm lands in an inconvenient place such as a sign, tree, structure or even a car. This is a common problem in spring and summer and usually happens with little warning. Left undisturbed, the bees will eventually move on, but until they move — or are relocated — they present a direct liability to station owners and managers.
Honey bee removal is a delicate task and must be done properly. When planning bee treatment and hive removal, our teams consider the time of day, your customer traffic patterns, your workers’ schedules and other variables to minimize your liability during the process.
Because honey bees are beneficial to the environment, under certain circumstances, they are protected by the EPA. Our trained professionals understand the regulatory guidelines pertaining to bee removal and treatment — as well as your liability concerns — and can help you navigate a workable solution.
Our technicians assess every situation and provide you with options, along with cost comparisons. While live honey bee removal is preferred, it is not always possible. When feasible, our teams will work with our network of local beekeepers to relocate the hives.
Because bees often return, our team is focused on providing a permanent, quality solution to your bee problems.
