Discover the bee site where a hive is established on the roof. Do it predawn when the bees are arising. Monitor where the bees are emerging to know their inclusive location.

Scale a ladder and bring a flashlight (with a red light bulb) to situate the nest. Predawn or twilight are ideal times to find the hive. Imprint the site with orange caution tape to immediately remember the hive site.

Adhere to the instructions of bee insecticide or pesticide you purchased. There are various makers and the majority of bee repellants are effective.


Clothe yourself in heavy clothing (long sleeve shirt, pants socks) at least 2 layers of pants and shirts (turtle neck) also incorporate gloves, a long-brimmed hat, or a meshed veil. At sundown, when bees are in-nest, get to the roof and flush the bee pesticide or insecticide into crevices, breaks, etc where the bees have hived.

Oversee bee movement a few mornings after the chemical application. Contingent on the volume of the hive and size of the breakout, there should be considerable hive reduction. Still, if bee movement persists on your roof then repeat the chemical application until bee activity is expunged.

Enclose breaks, crevices, voids (with caulk) onto the roof or amidst the house and roof. Frequently, bees hive near gaps in wood on a roof. Prevention is substantial to inhibit bees from hiving on a roof.


Get help from a beekeeper if bee activity on a roof protracts 6 months and the chemical applications have been ineffectual. Evidently, the bee infestation is more pervasive than first assessed.
