Home Inspection Missed Them And They Ain't Going Quietly

As Summer is drawing to an end, the heat has failed to give up it’s angry hold on the South. Temps are still near 100 with indexes even higher. It has been one of the rainiest seasons I can remember in years so the humidity is as high as the temps. The honeybees from last year did well through winter and produced many swarms. Sometimes these swarms find there way into voids of a home and setup shop. That’s where I come in. I’m Yappy Beeman and I am a professional bee remover.
In this episode, I travel to Alexandria ,Alabama to remove a 3 month old colony from a customers house. They had recently purchased the home and found the bees soon after. Upon Inspection, I found a little more than expected that gave a little scare but thankfully wasn’t going to be much issue.
Honeybee infestations are not as bad of a problem as some may think. They don’t do damage to the home because they don’t destroy anything. As you can see in the video, hornets had lived in this space at one time and they used the materials around them to build their home causing needed repairs.
Over time, honey bee colonies grow larger. As they do, their overall numbers grow also. Catching an infestation and removing them professionally is the best answer. If a colony ever dies, they leave behind large amounts of honey that can attract other critters such as roaches, beetles and moths. This could lead to a large mess when they try to break into the honey causing it to seep through the voids and into the home.

I hope you enjoyed this experience with me, watch as I work to remove a colony of honeybees.

  1. I found your videos today and I’m loving them.

    Queen: Okay, girls, we’ve heard his proposal, shall we take a vote, or form a committee to decide?
    Bee: Well, he does have good references, according to the info from our Bee Wifi.
    Bee: Yeah, he has at least four stars, and he’s made it clear he’s trying to be nice.
    Bee: True, he’s not coming at us with pesticides. He’s just here to relocate us.
    Bee: But why? This is our home, and we like it here.
    Bee: Yeah, why should we leave?
    (Bee vacuum turns on)
    Bee: I say we AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
    Bee: Lookout!
    Queen: Form ranks, ladies!
    Bees: Protect the Queen!
    Bees: Get the Human!
    Yappy: I gotcha! Ha! I got your Mama!
    Queen: Well, ladies, look like we’re moving after all.
    Bees: Hey, this place isn’t so bad.
    Bee: I vote that we move in immediately.
    Bees: Let’s do it!

  2. If Yappy gets fed up with bee keeping I think I can swing him the role of UN Secretary General with those negotiating skills.

  3. I have never in my 58 years seen anything like that , I've never really gave 🐝 a second thought but to stay away …but after watching you work you are truly THE MAN !! What a talent God bless you .

  4. Just ran across your videos. Love them. No bee keeping in my future. I am just amazed at how they march into the box. It's mesmerizing to watch them.

  5. This has nothing to do with a home inspection. Home inspections are not pest control. Some will charge extra for this kind of service. Your title spreads false information on what our industry checks for.

  6. The calm vibration of his voice actually helps. Because they won’t get as angry when moved

  7. The fact that yappy does this with 0 suit cuz it’s hot is INSANE, I just keep saying oommgg

  8. I don't know how I ended up here but that was fascinating. The queen controls everything.

  9. What gets me is how a sting is nothing to you. I've been bitten once and fark me, painful AF

  10. How is a home inspector suppose to find something above the soffit when you literally had to cut an area out to see it.

  11. Love watching you work. Yes you get paid for it but I love bees and it is heartwarming to see someone care so much for them. Bees are very important to the growth of plantation and they give off a nice hit of honey in the process. Thanks Yappie.

  12. Funny intro lmao ! I cannot believe you’re courage, I’ve never been stung by a bee and I’m 18, I’m deadly afraid of hives or a place with many bees

  13. If you’d turn that front yard into a lavender field they’d all grow fat right there!
