Professional Bee Removal Services
Live bee removal saves the bees and is environmentally necessary. It’s also a difficult job. The job entails removing siding and soffit material to access the bee colony and remove the honeycombs. We also apply appropriate products to prevent the return of bees, wasps, and yellow jackets. Appropriate exclusion work keeps a colony from reestablishing a home in that area again.
Yellow Jacket or Wasp Removal and Treatment
Wasps and yellow jackets are often found when mowing grass or moving equipment. Yellow jackets live in the ground near thickly wooded areas and around bushes, while wasps are usually found under eaves. Removal and treatment includes suiting up and proper treatment, as well as removing all the job related debris. If you notice wasps or yellow jackets, call us.
Quarterly Service for Your Convenience
Make sure you keep pesky wasps and yellow jackets away all year with our quarterly treatments. We’ll knock down all nests and spray the eaves of your home with an eco-friendly product. We will inspect the perimeter of your property and prohibit the further intrusion of stinging insects. This prevents them from rebuilding nests. We ensure that all wasps and yellow jackets are eradicated by the time we’re done.
What kind of bee problem do you have?
Did you know: There is a difference between a honey bee and a bumble bee.
The bumble bee is a species of bee common to the majority of the northern hemisphere but is actually very rare in tropical areas. The bumble bee thrives in temperate climates due to its ability to regulate its body temperature. Bumble bees can actually use solar radiation, shiver, and cool themselves. Because of this, bumble bees are not very common in St Pete or other parts of west Florida. This doesn’t mean you might not cross paths with the bumble bee in St Pete, because they are sometimes found. All six subspecies of bumble bee native to Florida can all be found in the St Pete area and all six bumble bees can be identified by their pale gold and black colored bodies, large eyes, and completely hairy, large bodies.
Like the honey bee, the bumble bee is a social bee with a queen bumble bee. In contrast to the honey bee, the bumble bee has a much smaller colony, with only 50 to 400 bumble bees in each hive. Identifying a bumble bee hive is a difficult task but a necessary one if you suspect bumble bees are a part of your St Pete residence. Bumble bees avoid warm areas such as direct sunlight and prefer to nets underground, often in burrows. If they do nest above ground, odds are the bumble bees will be protected from the Florida heat by nesting in tree trunks or thick, shady areas. Once located, a bumble bee hive can be distinguished by its disorganized clumped cellular structure.
Bumble bees are tremendous pollinators and vital to Floridian ecosystems. With their population decline lately, it is vital that if you find a bumblebee hive near your home to call Bee Man Stan so he can safely remove the hive from your home and relocate the bumblebees to a safe location.
Save the bees!
Honey bees are often the biggest nuisance because they like to build their bee hive in walls and roofs. However, honey bees are an important part of the ecosystem so it is important to always save the bees and relocate when possible. Fossil records have led scientists to believe that honey bees originated in Southeast Asia and then migrated to Europe. Today, honey bees are found all over the world and are frequently transported by beekeepers from one field to another to pollinate crops. Honey bees will build a honeycomb to house their larvae and to store their honey and pollen. Within the first week, a honeycomb can weigh around three pounds and can continue to grow by up to a pound per day. When honey bees build their hive in your house, it is important to remove the honeycomb in addition to just the bees. If the honeycomb is not removed, it could attract new swarms of bees. Bee Man Stan has removed honeycombs from under floors, water heater boxes, attics, and other unique areas. We always do our part to save the bees in St Pete.
Bees are in integral part of our ecosystem. At BeeMan Stan, our number one priority is ensuring the health and safety of the bee population. That’s why our services focus on effectively solving your bee problem by relocating bees.

A buzz about the honey bee
By far the most recognizable type of bee here in St Pete, Florida, the honey bee actually has territory expanding all of Florida and even the majority of the United States. The Western honey bee in particular is the most common honey bee worldwide, and the most common here in Sarasota. Coincidentally, the Western honey bee, or European honey bee, is not native to the Americas. Instead the honey bee was domesticated long ago in Europe, Africa, and Asia, and has spread around the globe for its production of honey. Honey bees are recognizable by their trademark honey bee black and yellow striped pattern. Additionally, honey bees are generally short in length, have small hairs all over their body, and unlike wasps and hornets, the honey bee has a proboscis protruding from its mouth, which is used for the ingesting of pollen and nectar.
Bee Removal in Florida
Like humans, the honey bee loves warm weather (not tropical) even though they are accustomed to temperate climates. The honey bee becomes dormant in the winter but the longer the warm months, the longer the honey bee is active. Because of this, honey bees flock toward Florida for its warm climate and flora galore, which honey bees utilize for pollen. Whether domesticated or wild, the honey bee centralizes its hive around a queen honey bee. The queen honey bee gives birth to all the drone and worker honey bees. The hives which they create, which you may have seen at some point here in St Pete, tend to be in confined areas such as tree hollows or even your own chimney! Because of their love for confined dry areas, you might stumble across a honey bee hive in your St Pete home.
If you do need bee removal in St Pete, call Bee Man Stan to remove the honey bees from you home and relocate the honey bees to a secluded area. They are often given to beekeepers for honey production. Honey bees are integral to our ecosystem and should not be harmed but carefully removed and relocated. Western honey bees not only produce delicious honey, but in Florida and many other areas of the world, the honey bee is the key pollinator in nature. In fact, the honey bee pollinates around 30% of the food we eat. That’s equivalent to $15 billion.
