Got a Bee Problem?
We get rid of bees that are life threatening to property owners in Kenya. If you have a swarm of bees around your property leave the bees alone and keep other people away until trained bee technicians have been called to handle the issue.
We understand Africanized bees, and our technicians are familiar with the bees’ biology and habits and will use best-in-class control methods to get the job done right. Our specialized bee removal services give you peace of mind that your bee situation will be dealt with properly.
Should I Worry?
More than 95 percent of wild bees are Africanized honey bees, also known as killer bees. Although the sting of an Africanized honey bee is no more lethal than one from a standard honey bee, these bees got their “killer” nickname because they are known for their aggressive nature; they are easily disturbed and provoked – even by simple noises or vibrations – and they swarm quickly, attack in larger groups and chase their intended target for longer distances, and all of those factors combined can make them deadly.
Being stung by a bee is a painful experience and can be life threatening to the one in thirty people who are allergic to stings.

What Causes Bees to Attack
There is no “cause” for bee swarms and hives, per se. However, you can determine what type of bee infestation you have by determining a few simple things:
- Swarms: Swarms are generally a group of bees that cluster around an outdoor area, say near a tree branch or building. Swarms form when about half of an established colony breaks off to start a new colony. The bees stay together in a swarm as they search for a new home. However, swarming bees often aren’t aggressive – even Africanized honey bees – because they don’t yet have a home to protect.
- Beehives: Beehives are home to bee colonies, where the queen lays eggs and where bees build honeycomb and produce honey. Bees often build their hives outdoors, such as in a hollow tree trunk, but they frequently build hives in attics and spaces between exterior and interior walls, as well as other wall cavities. If you notice large numbers of bees coming and going from one side of your house, or near the eaves or roof-line, it is best to call a bee specialist who can safely check your house or building for an active beehive. These are very aggressive when disturbed.
Prevention & Treatment
There is no way to prevent a swarm from landing on your tree, and there is no guaranteed way to prevent a hive from moving into your home. Bees love dark, secure spaces, like the hollow of a dead tree or the space of a wall cavity. There are, however, a few tricks to discourage bees – killer or otherwise – from moving into your house.
- Seal the house: Caulk cracks or spaces in walls or along eaves and roof lines.
- Fill empty spaces: Use foam insulation to fill empty spaces in walls or seal off access to them.
- Screen vents: Install fine-mesh screening across attic vents or baffling or vents that lead to other areas of the home.
