Not only will you be doing your part in protecting the environment, but you’ll also be saving yourself from a potential sting-filled nightmare. So, let us buzz on over to your property and take care of those pesky bees!

Type 1 = Live Bee Removal Without Pesticides

This type of bee removal can be misleading. Technically the bees are removed alive, but that does not always mean they will survive. Unfortunately, there are some people in the industry that mislead people by claiming they perform live removal, but they do not actually save the bees. These companies often use shop vacs (or vacuums that are not modified to be gentle). The problem with regular vacuums is that the bees become injured when they are sucked up into the chamber of the vacuum. Only a fraction of the bees survives, which inevitably causes the entire colony to die off. Technically these companies are not lying. It is technically a live removal…but it sure is not humane.

Type 2 = Live Bee Removal Catch and Release

 The next type of bee removal is one where the bees are removed alive in a humane way, but not necessarily looked after or cared for afterward. Companies that perform this type of bee removal often do not have a place to put the bees. It is because they do not have the land or space to set up beehive boxes.

Type 3 = Live Bee Removal With Relocation

This type of bee removal is when a company or bee professional not only removes the bees humanely, but also relocates them to a beehive box. In other words, the bees are not dumped randomly or illegally, but placed in a reserved spot, hopefully in a proper beehive box. The problem with this type of bee removal is that it does not ensure that the bees will have enough food and water. They are often not re queened to control aggression. In other words, they are simply left on their own, to prosper or thrive on their own. No care is given to help ensure the colonies continued survival. This type of bee removal is better than the previous two, but the next type is the one all people should seek out when looking for a humane bee removal company.

Type 4 = Live and Humane Bee Removal With Relocation And Care Taking

Bee removal. In this type of bee removal, the bees are removed alive and humanely. Then they are This last type of live bee removal is all about sustainability. It is the truest form of a live and humane taken to an apiary, farm, or beekeeper, where they will be cared for. In this scenario, the bees are tended to (usually at least bi-weekly). The beekeeper will perform regular hive inspections to ensure the health of the colony. Water and food are often provided if not available by nature. This is what most people think of when they think about Live Bee Removal, but sadly it is not very common in the bee removal industry.

Our method of Live Bee Removal is the most natual and humane way possible. Our method does not alram the bee’s and is less stressful for the bees as well. Here at APA Bee Removal when we do a  Live Bee Removal don’t use chemicals or vacuums to remove bees. We carefully remove the hive, and thoroughly clean the area to ensure that no honey residue or hive structure is left behind.  Then we relocate the bees by donating them to our Farms (98 milles north)  or local bee keepers to give them a place to live where they can thrive.

 If you have a swarm or small hive in your yard, do not kill them. Hire us and we will make sure they get a lovely home. Performing live swarm removals and relocating the bees to a new home is our favorite type of service that we provide. Not all jobs qualify, but if the conditions are right, we always prefer to remove the bees alive. If you have a non- aggressive swarm and they are easily accessible, a live removal might be the best way to manage the problem. Assuming the bees are not aggressive we can relocate the swarm by smoking them and putting them in a box. Not only do the bees get to live happily ever after in a new home, but most of the time no pesticides are needed, and it is environmentally friendly. The goal is to get them to a beekeeper that will re queen the colony and help increase the bee population here in Los Angeles County.

Why Do Honey Bees Swarm?

Swarms are the method by which honey bee colonies reproduce. 20-50% of the colony leaves the hive with the old queen, landing within a couple hundred feet of the hive they left from. They usually end up on tree branches, but sometimes they'll decide to land elsewhere, such as on mailboxes, cars, fences, door handles or anything else you can think of. This is only temporary, though, as the colony sends out scouts to find a new, permanent home. This is often a tree cavity, but any sufficiently large and dry cavity is suitable. Honey bees often choose wall cavities in houses because they are safe, dry places in which they can thrive.

How To Identify a Honeybee Swarm?

How to identify a honeybee swarm: Other insects a like wasps, yellow jackets, and bumble bees are often mistaken for honeybees. A swarm of honeybees have a few distinct features you can look out for. Individual bees have fuzzy black and gold bodies, and the swarm overall will appear as a distinctive, hanging clump. This clumping behavior makes it possible for beekeepers to gently collect and transport the bees.

More Information:

Swarming is the natural means of reproduction for honeybee colonies. A new honeybee colony is formed when the Queen Bee leaves the colony with a large group of worker bees, a process called swarming. In the prime swarm, about 60% of the worker bees leave the original hive location with the old queen. This swarm can contain thousands to tens of thousands of bees. Swarming is mainly a spring phenomenon, usually within a two or three week period depending on the locale but occasional swarms can happen throughout the producing season.

Why We Love Bees?

Bees are beneficial insects for nature as they help pollinize many of our food crops, including almonds, apples, avocados, blueberries, cantaloupes, cherries, cranberries, cucumbers, sunflowers, watermelon, and many other crops. However, when beehives or swarms get out of control they can become a problem and cause danger to people and property, especially in densely populated areas

 Just a few Honeybees or wasps could mean problems. Whether you see just a handful of bees in a tree, bees on the roof, or bees in the wall, there might be more. A lot more! There could actually be upwards of 10,000 to 50,000 bees inside setting up camp.

Why We Care About Bees?

Bees are an amazing asset to our environment because they pollinate plants and help our ecosystem thrive. While bees benefit our ecosystem, you do not want them building a hive on your property. Since bees are known to be vicious defenders of their hives, having a hive in your yard can threaten you and your family. Bees can be dangerous to anyone, but the risk of danger for those with bee sting allergies can be life-threatening.


Unlike other pest companies APA Bee Removal works solely with bees. We use professional equipment and specialized methods to remove beehives from your property safely and effectively. Why risk the danger of getting attacked by a swarm of bees when you have a local company willing to take that risk for you? Not only do we take the danger out of beehive removal, but we also remove live hives in the most humane way. Some bees are protected because they are vital to our environment. Honeybees, for example, pollinate our flowers and bring us delicious honey that is good for our health. If a beehive does not pose a viable threat to your family, we will use specialized removal methods that keep you safe and resolve the problem.

A beehive can be a frightening sight, and if you have found one near your home, or at your place of business, then it is probably already causing you a lot of frustration and anxiety. Let us face it – whether you love bees or hate them, the sight of a hive can be very intimidating. Up to 50,000 bees could be living inside, and if you are not careful with how you deal with the situation, you could end up with a big problem.  Beehive removal becomes important to prevent property damage.  A bee colony’s favorite place to hive is in the framing between walls of structures. Similarly, beehive removal locations include under eaves of enclosed fascia and Spanish roof tiles. Also, water control boxes and any type of enclosed utility box is also very common. Lastly, any equipment or vehicles left stationary and unused for long periods of time, underneath standing construction trailers, in light posts, in the trunks of trees, are also common places for beehive removal.  Our bee specialists will respond to your call fast and come out to your property to assess the situation. We have the skills needed to identify the type of insect present on your property and offer a quick, effective solution to remove the threat.
