The preferred method of bee removals is relocation, this includes the safe removal of a swarm or hive from a given location, and relocating in a bee friendly position. This should be done with as little disruption or damage to the bees and the structure from which the hive is removed.
Occasionally a bee remover may need to force his way into the structure in order to effectively remove the bees.
The removal of feral swarms is to be attempted by trained bee removers only. Because of the potential danger this is best not attempted by any untrained person. Members of BRASA will know their limitations and be able to recommend someone for whom feral swarm removal is a speciality.
The least favoured of the bee removal options as an ethical and humane approach should put the life of the swarm ahead of all other options. However in certain instances the best solution is to eradicate the swarm. This should be done swiftly and purposefully with the appropriate poison in order to prevent any lingering of the bees.
If a client wants the swarm removed through eradication it is the duty of the bee remover to convince the client that removal and re-hiving is the preferred solution.
Ethical and humane bee removals along with a bit of hard work can help bee-keeping evolve into a profitable hobby or business.
Finding yourself in the unexpected company of bees can be somewhat disconcerting. And it is only a natural reaction to want them gone, as far and as fast as possible. But don't do anything rash like attempt to remove them yourself. And don't just pick up the phone and call the first extermintaor on the list to help you with your problem.
Rather go back inside, make sure al your pets and children are safely inside, away from where they can come to any harm. Calmly look at the options on your list of pest controllers and bee removers. What do they promise? Can they deliver.
