Honey Bee Removal Surveys & the need for them
There’s rarely a need for a very expensive bee survey that tells you little or for a drone to take aerial photographs of what is already known, all that is usually needed is a few photographs and some questions answered for us to be able to give you a guide on what is required to remove and relocate the bees.
Do not commit to a bee survey until you have spoken to us. You probably don’t need one. Speak to us & benefit from our knowledge
Honey bee removal surveys & Thermal Images
A thermal imaging camera is the most useful item when carrying out a honey bee removal survey, the camera can in a lot of scenarios identify where the bee colony is clustering.
It is not always able to tell you everything, it relies on a variance of heat between the area the bees are clustered and the surrounding areas showing on the surface covering, be it a wall, ceiling or other.
So if there is a large amount of insulation i.e. Kingspan board between the ceiling & the colony you are unlikely to see a thermal variance, or if you are looking at a south facing wall on a warm day you are unlikely to see a thermal variance.
For most honey bee removal jobs there is no need for a honey bee survey, usually we can tell whats going on from a few good, quality photos.
Usually a modern phones camera can provide the necessary information so saving on the cost of a honey bee removal survey.
Once we arrive at site to carry out the work we tend to have a quick look with a thermal imager to ensure we are on track to do the right thing.
You can see from the images below how beneficial this can be.
