Please Note: I do not do free honeybee removals as beekeepers also, like you have bills too and for many of us such as myself, our only source of income comes from our apiculture profession. Every beekeeper I have met, from numerous states, DOES NOT DO FREE BEE REMOVALS. So, please do not insult beekeepers and the agricultural industry by saying beekeepers must work for free and live in poverty, even though some I do, while you get paid by your employer. If you truely just cannot afford it and like me live in poverty and a varible to semi-fixed income, I will work with you financially and I can barter to some extent for my services.

Portion of 4 ft X 2 ft high hive behind  exterior wall, Pinveville, NC The average honeybee removal (cut out) from a wall or ceiling can potentially take all day. I also will give you a portion of the honey. In addition, I also lay plastic sheets down on your floor from the entry door to the nest site. I attach plastic sheeting on the walls surrounding the cut out site so as to eleminate honey getting splashed on your wall. In other words, I treat your home, while I am there working, like it is my home. You get what you pay for. True, you may find a new beekeeper to do a free removal for just the bees & honey, but I seriously doubt he/she has experience doing cut outs, you probably won't get any honey, and you will have one big mess to clean up as you were too cheap to pay for quality work.
  • The minimum structure removal fee for the typical colony (not a swarm) can be as One of the many reasons beekeepers DO NOT DO FREE HONEYBEE REMOVALS, besides being unfair in asking us to work for free because you are a really nice personlow as $275.00, but could be as much as $800.00 or more depending the distance from my home to your home, the colony size and location, height from the ground, time of year (colonies are larger in the summer than winter), and the number of hours or days to complete the removal.
  • The average price for the average size colony within 6 feet from the ground is $300.00.
  • We may have to cut large holes in your wall or roof to get to the bee nest and remove all the honeycomb, brood comb, and honeybees.
  • After removing the hive, the cavity will be cleaned, dried, and painted to conceal the odors of honey and beeswax that could attract another swarm. I will also stuff the void with insulation so that no honeybee swarm can re-occupy that space, and screen and caulk the bees' entry hole(s).
  • For honeybee colonies, you will receive some of the honeycomb, so please provide Tupperware containers for your honeycomb.
  • You should be prepared to hire a carpenter to repair your wall or roof once we have removed the honeybees and comb. We will cover the opening with plastic and wood till you can get a carpenter to repair the wall where the honeybee nest was.
  • For a great carpenter, call my friend Buddy Abbott, of Abbott's Painting & Remodeling at 704-777-0146. or

Closeup of honeybee hive from 55 ft high removal in Pineville, NCWe safely remove honeybee colonies in houses, buildings, storage sheds, rock or brick walls, and tree cavities. We also remove swarms of honeybees found on tree and shrub branches. Once we capture and remove the bees, they are taken to one of our apiaries (bee yards) and put in a honeybee colony.

Golden Delight Honey, LLC., 225-803-5406 also has extensive experience working with and safely removing Africanized honeybee (killer bees) colonies and swarms with in Tucson, Arizona. Although Africanized honeybees are very uncommon to rare in the Carolinas, unlike the Desert Southwest or central Florida, any honeybee removal, either European or Africanized should be left to beekeepers. I have extensive training, experience, protective equipment, and clothing designed to keep from getting stung. You do not.

But despite the warnings, many people attempt to address their wasp or hornet removal problem themselves every year, which typically results in disaster, with themselves and others including children getting severely stung. Unless you have significant experience in removing wasps and hornet nests, and the right equipment for it, then this is a job best left to professionals. Otherwise, you risk getting stung, or causing others to be injured. This is entirely unnecessary and could be easily avoided by taking a few precautionary steps. Before you attempt to do something you'll regret later, here are some important tips you need to know about wasp removal.
  • 1) Do not use the water hose to spray them down. This is another mistake many people make when attempting to remove the wasps and hornets themselves. They get out the garden hose, stand 20 feet back and drench the nest, trying to knock it down. Wasps and hornets do not appreciate getting a bath and you increase the risk of being stung while seeing how fast you can run getting chased by really agitated critters and you also fail to remove the nest.
  • 2)Knocking the nest down is a very bad idea. Depending on the species of wasp, hornet, or bee there could be up to 25,000 honeybees, wasps, or hornets living on or in the nest or hive. By poking at it with a branch or shovel, throwing rocks at it, burning the honeybee infested shed, or shooting the nest with a shotgun (e.g. baldface hornet nests) you are only creating an extremely dangerous situation to yourself and anyone else around you.
  • 3) If you still want to be a man or a woman and do the job yourself to save a few dollars despite not having the protective equipment beekeepers wear, here are a few more tips.


  • a) Be sure to stop by the pharmacy and get an Epi-Pen in case you are severely allergic to insect venom,
  • b) Have your smart phone handy in case you need to call 911. Rescue personnel will not be excited to get the tar stung out of them too, based on the bill you may get in the mail,
  • c) Make sure you have your escape route to the truck or house planned and memorized with obstructions between you and safety have been cleared away.
  • d) Please make sure your pets are inside. It is not fair they get punished with bee or hornet stings due to your attempt to save some cash.
  • e) I am not lying when I say getting stung 25 times by yellow jackets or 200 times by Africanized honeybees does not feel very nice and hurts for days. At least my face was protected with my beekeeper jacket and veil as I did not get stung in the mouth, ears, eyes, nose, and head like you did as wasps, hornets, and honeybees are attracted to the carbon dioxide we humans exhale. That is why you hear about people attacked and killed by Africanized honeybees in central Florida and the Desert Southwest, and Mexico had honeybees in their throat and lungs.

In most cases, doing the job yourself without experience, you will only cause the honeybees to pursue, attack, and sting the tar out of you. Local farmers tell me the sting of the European hornet feels like an ice pick being stabbed into your flesh multiple times as your are running for your life. But more importantly, you probably won't do enough damage to the nest to make the wasps seek a new home, so you'll be stuck with the same problem, even after you get nailed in the face multiple times and your coworkers at your job the next day laugh at you (personal experience first few months in beekeeping working bees). For yellow jacket wasps, other wasp species, and hornets, please call an exterminator. I do not exterminate wasps and hornets. I only do honey bee swarm rescues and removal of honeybee colonies from structures.

Swarm landing on loblolly pine tree If you find a swarm of honeybees on your property or a honeybee colony inside the walls of your home or outbuilding, please do not just poison the swarm or call an exterminating company. Besides, most exterminators are not set up to do honeybee removals requiring the use of saws, ladders, and one or two employees on a job for up to 8 hours. Most exterminating companies will recommend you call a Professional Beekeeper, So please call me, James Henderson of Golden Delight Honey, LLC. at 225-803-5406 which is my business IPhone number. I use to live in south Louisiana when I started my business, so I am located in Union County, NC, not back in Louisiana.

Besides, if you just poison the honeybees in your walls or attic I promise you will NOT kill them all and YOU WILL piss off most of the honeybees and they WILL SEVERLY punish you. In addition, the honeycomb, broodcomb, and wax will melt and just attract other bees plus ants, roaches, and mice. You may not think you have palmetto bugs (big flying roaches), but almost every honeybee removal I have done in 4 states over the last 10 years, I have found palmetto bugs and other roaches in the walls. In addition, the remaining honey and beeswax will rot the wood, causing you further damage and repair bills. The honeybees and hornets WILL RESIST against your attempt to spray them with poison.
