Wondering if you are looking at bee removal, rather than bee extermination? Luckily, you have come to the right place. Jim’s Pest Control are the local bee experts. We prefer to, when possible, remove bees and relocate them, rather resorting to extermination.
Jim’s Pest Control is a group of locally owned, family run pest control businesses in Adelaide and regional South Australia. We are committed to saving and relocating bees when we can. Call us on 131 546 for friendly and professional service.
It’s one task to capture bees, but it’s another to find a safe home for them. This is why Jim’s Pest Control works with local bee keepers and the Bee Society of South Australia (BSSA) and its members.
Since our pest technicians have adopted this approach, we have been able to save millions of bees. We are one of the only pest control companies in Adelaide to offer this service where possible.
Bee removal and live capture
Live bee removal and capture is a very different technique that is not common a practice among all pest control companies in Adelaide.
In 2012, Lynton, a Jim’s Pest Control technician, felt sick to the stomach at having to terminate another bee swarm. He thought there had to be a way of capturing and transporting these homeless bees to safety.
He set about building mesh bags which could safely capture the bees and make it easier to transport them. The next problem he had was who would take them. It was then he contacted the local bee society, and the rest is bee-utiful history.
You can just imagine the look on the apiarist’s face when a pest controller arrived at their home with a huge bag of bees for them to re-home. After all, pest controllers and bee keepers are meant to be arch enemies.
