Signs of a bee problem

Bee activity

This one may seem obvious, but if you’re noticing frequent bee activity – or more activity than you’ve ever previously noticed – it’s a clear sign that you may be dealing with an infestation or a nest nearby. If you notice this sign, we don’t recommend that you investigate yourself to see where they’re coming from (you could disturb the hive). Instead, call a professional and let us get to the bottom of it.  

Unusual heat or noise

Fun fact: they like to keep their nests at approximately 34 degrees celsius. As the nest grows, then, you will notice that your room – and even your walls – are hotter than usual. This is a sure sign that you have a fairly large problem on your hands, so you should call a bee removal expert right away. 

Dead bees

Suddenly noticing dead insects popping up around your home? It could be a sign that you have a hive developing in your walls. Remember – they are sensitive to light, so they’ll want to stay in a dark, cozy place (like your walls). However, they will need to get out from time to time, and they may die trying to do so. So if dead bees start popping up, we recommend that you call a professional as soon as possible. 

Dark spots

Finally, if you notice new dark spots on your walls or ceiling, it could be another sign. Again, they often build their nests within the walls of a home. Eventually, the honey from inside the hive cells can start to seep into the walls, creating dark, wet spots on the surface. This definitely means it’s time to call a professional. 

What is the cost of bee removal?

The overall cost of bee removal depends on various factors, including:  


Believe it or not, the type of bee factors into the overall cost of removal, as each type comes with its own unique challenges and concerns, Honey bees, for example, bult extensive swamps that require longer to remove. Carpenter bees, on the other hand, tend to cause more damage to the wood in your home (which will need repair). Bumblebees, contrastingly, usually have small nests that are very straightforward to remove. 

Size of the hive

This one is fairly obvious. If a hive is large and complex in structure, it will take more time and effort to remove (and, by extension, it will be more costly overall). 

Service required

There are many types of bee removal services, and each one has a different overall cost and level of effort. These include: 

Swarm removal

This is the least expensive of all bee removal services. Swarming bees do not have a hive, so they are easier to remove and control. In general, swarm removal can cost anywhere from $50 – $100 depending on the size and severity of the swarm. 

Bee and hive removal

Here, you can expect to pay $75 – $100 for removal, though these charges don’t consider any structural damages or repairs. 


This can cost anywhere from $100 – $1,000 depending on the type of colony and the availability of relocation sites in the area. 


This generally costs $150 – $500.

Labour and materials

The final factor that affects cost is the number of people and the types of tools required to safely and effectively remove them. 

How long does it take to remove bees?

The overall time it takes to get a bee removal job done also depends on various factors, including their type, the size of the hive or swarm, and the accessibility of the area. Here are a few things to keep in mind.  

First, hives will always take longer than swarms to remove, and hive removal requires removal of structures. This is exacerbated when the hive is in a hard-to-reach area like a roof or a wall. Overall, though, if you have them in these areas, you can expect inspection, removal, and repair to be completed over several days. Swarm removal, on the other hand, can take as short as a few hours to complete.

How can you identify a professional pest control team in Brisbane?
