I work for a major construction supplier in the neighborhood I live in and we have numerous buildings on the property.
A few years ago we discovered that there were bees inside the walls of one of our conference rooms.
We needed to take out the bees for their safety and for ours, however initially the admin called our extermination supplier because at the time she had no clue who to contact. But thankfully our exterminator suggested she call a commercial bee removal repair instead, so we were cheerful about that advice, since a removal repair would better take care of the bees. After searching online for a bee removal supplier, she was able to find one. Two afternoons later, after we initially discovered the bees, the bee removal repair was on the property assessing the situation. Unfortunately, we were told that the bees could not be saved because it wasn’t a colony, but a displaced swarm. And it would cost significant problems to the building if she attempted to save the bees. It was a undoubtedly taxing situation as the decision on how to handle those bees was out of our hands. A few of us from the office wanted to get a better understanding if there were other options that we could explore. But due to the nature of the situation, and the fact that it wasn’t a large colony of bees, the bee removal repair had no option in how they proceeded in removing them. Needless to say, the bees were detached, and it caused little to no destruction. The hole where the bees entered the conference room was fixed as well to avoid this happening again in the future.
