Vergo will carry out a comprehensive survey so that we can create a complete bespoke scope of work that enables us to safely remove the bees and honeycomb from the property.
As honeycomb is protected under UK law, we never recommend spraying honeybees as pesticide will be brought back to the comb by the bees and will contaminate it. This is then a risk of foraging bees stealing the honey, taking it back to and contaminating beekeeper’s hives and entering the human food chain. This is a finable offence.
There is no legal pesticide for use on honeybees in the UK. If you do spray the bees, it will not fix the problem as there will be no bees to maintain the honey and comb. This will lead to honey damage and comb collapsing or rotting in the building.
