Why You Need to Remove Abandoned Honeycomb

Attempting to remove an established Honey Bee colony from your structure will definitely get the girls riled up and possibly get you any or others nearby stung. Most honeybee stings are not deadly though an allergic reaction is common and could result in a visit to the hospital.


Honeycomb removal is a crucial component of bee removal process. By doing this, you prevent future infestations from other Honey Bees that are attracted by the pheremones left in the Honey Comb as well as other pests, potential architectural damage from melting honey. A re-infestation of Honey Bees is inevitable if honeycomb is not removed and the location prepared to prevent it.


As we mentioned A re-infestation is not your only concern. Honeycomb without Honey Bees can cause substantial structural damage from melting honey soaking into walls. Prevent costly problems today!

Abandoned honeycombs can become filled with freeloader insects or may also attract possible rodents that could create even more trouble. Removal shouldn’t be a DIY project either, leave it up to the Tennesssee's Honey Bees to take care of the issues.

If you hear buzzing in the wall, this is one sign that there could be a swarm of Honey Bees making home inside your walls and filling the space with honeycomb. An abandoned honeycomb over time will start to decay and create a foul smell that can only go away when the honeycomb is removed.

We will assist in eliminating the possibility of another Honey Bee colony making a home in an abandoned honeycomb by removing it.

You will have to be sure to have your contractor, making the necessary repairs after the cutout has been completed, knows that he can also help prevent future colonies from moving in by, painting over the nest area, filling the nest cavity with insulation, then sealing and painting all entrance holes. Doing so will drop the risk another swarm smelling the old nest and moving in.
