Bee Pest Control

Bees are essential for our ecosystem, as many flowers need them to pollinate. But, that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Our safe bee pest control service removes the hive without harming the bees. We relocate the hive away from your property, and the bees follow.

Bee hives can be in found in the walls of Australian homes and businesses, find out more here.

From Preparation to Treatment

First, our bee pest control technician will identify the species of flying insect. Australian native bees do not sting. The introduced species that could be swarming on your property include the European honey bee (Apis mellifera), the Asian honey bee (Apis cerana) in Queensland and the Bumblebee (Bombus Terrestris) in Tasmania.

Next, our technician locates the beehive. We often find hives in the walls of homes using our thermal imaging device. 
Our technicians will remove the hive and relocate it to a safe area. The bees follow the hive.
The technician then treats the area for any pests that may have been attracted to the sweet honey from the hive.

Common Bee Questions

  1. Where do bees and wasps live?

    Bees thrive in natural or domesticated environments, although they prefer to live in gardens, woodlands or orchards, meadows and other areas where flowering plants are abundant. They build nests inside trees cavities and under edges of objects to hide themselves from predators. They can also live in the wall cavity of homes. Wasps can be found in soil, on the ground, inside fruit (because of their penchant for consuming sweet foods), in their mud or paper nests, and around the home. European wasps are known to establish a nest underground.

  2. When are bees and wasps most active?

    Bees and wasps are most active during the day. Bees have been observed to sleep in groups during the night. Wasps are active at any time of the day, with some species only active before the sun rises. Wasps are most active during the warmer months of the year, when they can become aggressive and can be found near garbage cans or around food.

  3. Why are wasps considered pests?

    Not all wasps are pests, but the European wasp is an aggressive species and the number one pest cause of hospitalizations in Australia. Those with allergies to wasps face the biggest risk. Unlike a bee – which can only sting once – the European wasp is able to sting multiple times.

  4. Do I need professional bee or wasp help?

    An unsought beehive or wasp nest in your garden can prove dangerous, particularly for those with allergies or children. As bees play an active role in our ecosystem, it’s important to try and remove them safely from your property. Flick will do this whenever possible. Our technicians are trained in removing bees in an environmentally friendly way.

  5. What should I do if I spot a bee or wasp nest?

    If you come across a bee or wasp nest on your property, do not approach it. Both species are more likely to behave aggressively if they are defending their home. The safest way to remove bees is by calling your trusted Flick technician, who will safely remove the nest from your premises.

Common Bees

European Honey Bee (Apis mellifera)


Worker Honey Bees are 13-16mm in length, with yellow abdominal banding and fine hairs all over the body. They have light brown wings with dark veins.


Honey bees live in colonies of approximately 40,000 to 80,000 bees. Inside their hives, they build parallel wax structures to store food and their brood. They sting if the hive is threatened. Honey bees nest in cavities such as tree hollows or house walls.


Swarming can occur once or twice a year, depending on the climate. They tend to be docile unless threatened.

Asian Honey Bee (Apis cerana)


Asian honey bees are 10-13mm, which is smaller and less hairy than European honey bees. They also have brighter yellow banding on their abdomen. Their clear wings have dark brown veins.


Asian honey bees build hives with about 20,000 bees. They fly faster and more erratic than European honey bees and can sting when threatened. They were first spotted in Cairns in 2007 and are now established in far north Queensland.


Asian Honey Bees cannot be used for honey production as they leave the hive and swarm frequently. They can spead mites and diseases.

Bumblebee (Bombus Terrestris)


The bumblebee ranges in size from 11–22 mm and is covered with dense hair. Their abdomen is black with one yellow band across the thorax and another across the abdomen. They have a white patch at the end of the abdomen.


Bumblebees were introduced illegally to Tasmania in 1992 and are now established there. This social bee lives in small colonies of only 50 to 60 bees.


Bumble bees like colder climates and nest in the ground, such as compost heaps.
