Bee Removal Services
We offer a variety of services to help control your bee problem. We perform live bee swarm removals and relocate the bees to a farm, beekeeper, or apiary. Our live removals are pesticide -free and environmentally friendly. Let us help you save those bees. In addition to saving the bees we are also able to offer traditional bee eliminations whenever the bees are aggressive or put your family at risk. Africanized bees are a threat in So Cal and we are certified by the state of California as Africanized Bee experts. If bees build a hive inside your home, we can extract the hives from walls, chimneys, roofs, under sheds, and other areas where bees like to build a hive. In certain cases we can also “bee proof” areas where a hive has been removed to exclude bees from re-entering.

We offer a variety of services to help control your bee problem. If bees build a hive inside your home, we can extract the hives from walls, chimneys, roofs, under sheds, and other areas where bees like to build a hive.
BEE HIVE REMOVAL
Beehives are the home of the colony. This is where the queen lays her eggs. The honeycomb is built in the hive and it is where the honey is produced. Hives can be built in many places but typically they are built where they can be protected easily. Hollowed out trees, wall cavities, between the walls of a home can all be homes to a hive.
BEE SWARM REMOVAL AND RELOCATION
A swarm of bees can be found on the branches in the trees, or just about any outdoor area. Swarms take place when a colony outgrows the hive and splits. Typically, a second queen leaves the hive and takes half of the colony with her.
Swarm is usually located within 100 yards of the parent colony. Although swarming honey bees have little interest in stinging people you should stay away,
When we’re performing a bee hive removal, we not only remove the actual bees, we remove the honey-comb that they’ve made as well. Honeycomb is made of a waxy hexagonal structure that holds liquid honey and bee larvae called brood. Bees start to make honey-comb a day or two after arriving at a hive location. After just a week, bees can make more than a pound of honey-comb. When bees have been working on a hive for a few months it is typical for the hive to weigh 10 to 20 pounds, and if a bee hive has been around for a year or more it is not uncommon for it to weigh hundreds of pounds. APA removes all the honeycomb, cleans the hive space and eliminate odors of the honey-comb and bee pheromones. The service comes with a warranty insuring that the bees will not come back
STRUCTURAL REMOVAL AND REPAIRS
When we remove bee hives from buildings, we repair any openings made to extract the hive, and completely seal the structure as a final precaution. Our expert technicians have years of experience repairing stucco, drywall, plaster, carpentry, siding and roofs (roof repairs are guaranteed leak-free).
There are times when wild bees are too aggressive to be able to get rescued and need to be eliminated for public safety. Sometimes the bees are inside a structure that is impossible or expensive to open, like inside concrete. Other times the hive may be located near a sensitive site like a school or hospital. If a homeowner is allergic, an elimination may be safer than a live removal. Public safety is always our number one priority. We will not perform a live removal if it puts our clients’ families, neighbors, and/or pets at risk. APA Bee Removal can provide traditional pest control measures whenever necessary. Although we prefer to remove bees live, it is not always possible.
