Bee Removal From Our Roof

The bees were living in our roof for several years. They entered and exited through the eve of the roof. The location of the hive was above our heads in our master bedroom. Ocassionally it would be difficult to fall asleep because we could hear the bees buzzing around in the ceiling. Usually the activity was worse in the summer, so we could comfortably turn on the ceiling fan to drown out the sound of the bees.

However, recently, they had somehow created a hole in the ceiling and began flying into our bedroom. I temporarily plugged the hole with expandable foam sealant. But this was the tipping point that prompted me to call Abe Rodriguez, a local bee removal expert, to remove the bees.

This video shows the process of removal from the roof. They opened the roof, sucked up the bees into a holding container, removeed the hive, cleaned-up the remains and sprayed to prevent bees from returning, filled the space with insulation to further prevent bees from taking recidence here, and then replaced the roof. They did a great job and you could hardly tell the the roof was ever opened in the first place.

The hive was well established and an estimated 30lbs of honey and honeycomb and ~50,000 bees.

    Yeah.. very interesting post, I love to live in forest. My father is in the forest department, I love to walk in forest and also love wild animals and natural air without any need of ceiling fans. Thanks for sharing your beautiful thought.

    looks like a good job, but when you say sealed, i hope you dont mean by filling the trusses, they need to be open and air needs to be bale to freely circulate to allow the structure to breath, otherwise you are going to have moisture problems later on.
