What is live bee removal? 

We are glad you asked! Live bee removal is a unique process in which honey bees are removed alive and well from your property. We do this using a special vacuum system that gently sucks out the bees. Then, the bees are transferred to a beehive box and transported to a San Diego area apiary. Our beekeeper cares for the bees, giving them a perfect new home to pollinate the local crops and orchards. During the live bee removal process, we do not use harsh chemicals or pesticides that can harm the bees. 

Why choose live bee removal? 

When you choose live bee removal, you are choosing to protect honey bees rather than exterminate them. As you probably have heard, honey bee populations have been in a decline due to environmental factors, disease, weather and infestations by varroa mites. By choosing to hire a typical exterminator to handle your bee infestation, you are contributing to the decline of the honey bee population and creating a negative impact on the local ecosystem. 

In addition, working with a live bee removal company ensures that the job is done humanely and correctly. You see, your average exterminator will quickly rid your property of bees using chemicals. However, they often neglect to remove the honeycomb which could cause you issues down the road. Honeycomb contains odors that attract bees. If the honeycomb is left in the area, more bees will buzz to your property in the future. A live bee removal technician will know to remove all of the honey and honeycomb so your property will be protected.     

Can you remove bees on your own? 

The short answer is no. It is never a good idea to remove bees on your own. Bees can be defensive when they are aggravated or feel that their hive is being threatened. Even if you aren’t allergic to bee venom, multiple bee stings can be very dangerous. In addition to the risk of stings, bee removal requires the use of specialized equipment and specific knowledge that the average person does not possess. Without the right tools, the chance of doing the job safely and well is very slim.
