Last year, in the late Spring, I had some major troubles with bees in the house.

  • At first, there was just a single bee flying around, scaring my kids.

I usually managed to trap the bee in a cup and release it outside… Eventually, we started finding several to several bees every day. I couldn’t figure out how they were getting inside or where they were coming from. When the weather warmed up and I lowered the temperature control, I realized that the bees were located in the ductwork. The cooling system started up and a bunch of miserable bees poured out of the supply vents. There were so several of them that we hastily evacuated the house. I right away called a local Heating and A/C supplier, thinking that I’d need a professional to disinfect the bees out of the ductwork. The Heating and A/C contractor informed me that bees are protected, and I’d need to contact a licensed bee removal supplier. It took me awhile to find a bee removal specialist in my local area, however thankfully, the guy was willing to come to my home that same day. The removal process was rather lengthy and involved, however was completed separate from causing destruction to my home. I had worried that the guy would need to tear into my walls to access the ducts. However, once the bees were gone, their hive was left behind. I still needed to have the duct system professionally cleaned before I could run the cooling system. The Heating and A/C contractor was not as accommodating as the bee removal service. I was forced to wait over a week for an appointment.
