Renowned NY bee removal specialist Michael Mollica,
the featured bee specialist on the
Animal Planet TV show, "INFESTED".
Bee removals in Long Island Nassau and Long Island Suffolk Counties. We serve most
counties throughout New York State. We have solutions for recurring bee problems, honey bee removal,
bee control, bee rescue, and removing nuisance bees from homes and businesses.
We are local beekeepers who specialize in the removal of unwanted honey bee swarms, hives, colonies, etc.
Important Note: Bee removal can be very dangerous. It is very common for us to get stung right through our suits on bee removal calls. If you or a family member are one of the few who have allergies to bee stings this could be potentially fatal. It is not worth risking your life or that of a family members to do your own bee removal. The potential danger and risk of being stung attempting your own bee removal will be different depending on the species you are trying to remove. Honey bees can only sting once and they are generally termed as "defensive" versus "offensive". Once provoked, honey bees can attack in such numbers that they can kill regardless of an allergy being present or not. Any attempted bee removal on yellow jackets can be equally dangerous as they have the ability to sting multiple times. Yellow Jacket stingers are not barbed like the honey bees and yellow jackets are much more aggressive than honey bees. Yellow jackets will attack you with very little or even no provocation making any bee removal a potentially painful endeavor. Not only does any do-it-yourself bee removal expose you to being stung, most DIY bee removal attempts are met with failure. Yellow Jackets and Hornets (both a type of wasp) can have multiple queens. If you attempt a bee removal by spraying an over the counter bee spray like the type sold at Home Depot or Lowe's and you fail to kill all of the queens, there is a high probability of the bees bouncing right back in the coming weeks. Our best advice is to hire a professional bee removal expert who understands the biology of these insects and can remove them in a safe and effective manner. We learned our lessons through hundreds of bee removal calls and hundreds of stings. Please think twice before trying a bee removal without the proper equipment! It could save your life...
Additional Note: Our bee removal services are conducted differently than Orkin or Terminex would do. Most pest control agencies or exterminators will use very harsh chemicals that require special licensing to employ. These place your children and your pets at risk. Choosing us as your bee removal expects means that your job can be done 100% organically without the use of harsh chemicals. WE ARE NOT A PEST CONTROL COMPANY..... By removing the entire nest, to include the Queen and all the babies, we minimize or completely negate the need for such chemicals. As bee removal experts we understand the biology of bees enough to disrupt their reproductive cycle and prevent them from returning. A bee removal should NEVER place your family or pets at risk and we will ALWAYS treat your house and property as if it were our own. Please consider The Bee Shepherds for all of your bee removal needs.
We can perform any bee removal humanely. We will always perform a live bee removal of honey bees as our mission statement dedicates us to the preservation of honey bees. Upon request, we can also perform live removal of yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets if if violates your religious beliefs to kill them or if it is simply your preference.
