Live Honey Bee Removals From Lofts
Whether you love bee's or don't, you probably don't want them as a house guest. SAAF Bees can safely and ethically relocate your house guests to a new hive.
Lofts are one of the hardest places to remove Honey Bees from. They are the perfect home for Honey Bees as its a warm, secure and dry location - high and out of the way of people. In-between the roof joists are some of their favourite places to set up a colony. You may have previously been told by other beekeepers that they cannot be removed, but this is just not the case. SAAF Bees have a very specialised skill set to remove Bees from difficult places and even offer customers an opportunity to get up close and personal with the Bees during the removal.

Full report service of works carried out
Our Bees all get rehomed in to a new hive and looked after to ensure they survive, and we notify the owner of the hive number so you can order honey specifically from that hive if you want

1) You contact us
2) We come and carry out an initial inspection to confirm the species and requirements - please note we may carry out a virtual inspection using 'Google Street View' and a video call with you
3) We book a mutually convenient date (only during Bee season end of March to end of September)
4) On the day we start start removing the comb and Bees from the Loft, and then invite owners to come an observe if they would like, we use a few different techniques, but remove all of the bees and the comb during the day.
5) At the end of the day we powder the loft section and ensure it is watertight until repaired by a qualified roofer/builder.
