Bee Removal

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 follow through to our online form. 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 in 2017 and have also been awarded an International Corporate Social Responsibility award in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2015.

Bee Removal

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.

There are numerous different types of Bumblebee, which means their markings are very different as well as their nesting habits. The Tree Bee (B.Hypnorum) is a type of bee commonly found nesting in and around our properties. The Tree Bee Society carry out removals of all Bumblebees, safely removing the nest and bringing it back to our field here in the North West. More of our Bumblebee removal work can be seen in our Gallery.


The Honeybee (or Honey Bees) 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 seen in our gallery.

We provide a national service for honey bee removals, which unlike seasonal bumblebees, the colony continues to grow year on year. Long term, this can cause issues - we have found that the honey produced by these colonies often brings down ceilings, blocks cavity walls and chimneys. An average size of a honeybee colony in the summer is around 50,000 bees, they will easily produce around six litres of honey and it is not uncommon for us to remove bees from domestic and commercial properties that have been there in excess of ten years.
