The Tree Bee Society offer an award winning, bee removal service across the UK. We operate our bee removal for both residential and commercial properties and work safely and precisely to ensure that not only is the colony being removed kept alive, but also that there is no damage to the properties we are working on.
We offer bee removal for both Bumblebees and Honeybees, however our methods vary depending on the species we are removing. Please use the images below to identify the type of bee you have, clicking to find out more information about how you should best go about dealing with the bees. Alternatively, complete our Bee Removal Form below. By filling this form out, you are allowing us to provide you with the most accurate proposal and quote we can.
Our bee removal work has seen us collect awards from the Palace of Westminster in London, we have been the winners of Merseyside based newspaper the Echo’s Environmental Business of the Year and have also been awarded an International Corporate Social Responsibility award in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The bumblebee can differ in size depending on what they do in the colony, however they are generally bigger than both Wasps and Honeybees. They are categorised by their loud buzzing, lazy flying motion and size and can often be found nesting in the ground (in old rodent nests) and also above ground (loft insultation, bird nests, bird boxes). Bumblebees are seasonal and their nests will generally last from the beginning of Spring through to August/September.
Bumblebees don’t swarm and can be noticed as early as the end of February, emerging from winter hibernation.
The Honeybee has been present in the UK since the end of the last Ice Age and is an important pollinating species. They are smaller than both Wasps and Bumblebees and unlike the other two, make Honey!
Honeybees do swarm and while their natural habitat is tree cavities, quite often they set up new colonies in our properties and homes. The Tree Bee Society offers a removals service for Honeybee colonies that are found in and around properties.
Examples of our work can be found in our gallery.
Wasps live in a nest that resembles a large paper football in shape and size. Wasps have a reputation for a powerful sting and a short temper! They emerge in the Spring, however nests are rarely visible until mid-late summer, at which point the wasps can make themselves known by becoming a nuisance, targeting soft drinks and sugary foods.
We don’t deal with wasps nests at the Tree Bee Society, however, we can recommend that you contact your local pest controller to make an appointment if you have an aggressive nest on your property.
