Bees swarm at least once a year – and here in Santa Ana they often swarm more than once per year due to our mild climate which allows bees to work year round, keeping them even busier than the “busy” bees in other parts of the Country. Of course the downside to our wild bee population here in California is that they have become more and more aggressive every year since the Africanized, “killer” bees were introduced to this area. While all bees offer a great boon to our farming and food production efforts, a swarm of bees arriving on or around our personal space can quickly go from mere nuisance to downright dangerous. Please utilize the utmost care around any large group of bees, do not disturb or interfere with them and call in an expert at live removal for immediate advice and attention. ALL BEE SWARMS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BEHAVE AGGRESSIVELY AND MAY BE A DANGER TO PEOPLE OR PETS. DO NOT APPROACH A SWARM OF BEES UNLESS YOU ARE SPECIFICALLY TRAINED AND SAFELY OUTFITTED.
Most calls we receive describe bees in two ways. Either a swarm, which is a mass of travelling or resting bees OUTSIDE and made up of thousands of bees. or a Colony or hive of bees, which is most likely to be described as a buzzing from inside a structure, or a line of bees traveling in and out of a space. A Colony of bees, depending on how long it has been there, may consist of more than 50,000 bees and contain hundreds of pounds of wax and honeycomb.

How do I find the right bee removal company? Here are some important questions to ask.
1. Do you have experience removing bees from a wall?
Removing honeybees from a wall requires carpentry experience. A novice beekeeper can cause more damage than good if they are not experts in carpentry.
2. What is the process of removing bees from a wall?
An experienced beekeeper will identify the location of the bees with an infrared camera, use a smoker to calm the bees, use a bee vacuum and other professional tools to remove the honeybees safely, extract the hive, clean the affected area, apply pesticide to deter honeybees from returning to the empty hive, fill the open area with insulation and replace the wall with the original material whenever possible.
3. Do you have pictures of honeybee removals from walls?
Trustworthy honeybee removal companies will have plenty of pictures. Choose a company that has more than just a few examples.
4.How long have you been a beekeeper?
Because there are many species of bees, a beekeeper must have extensive knowledge of the different techniques to safely and effectively remove the bees.
5. How long have you been in business?
Make sure they have a valid business license and have many years of experience in the bee removal field.
6. Do you have references?
A reputable bee removal company will have good ratings online on platforms such as Google. Be wary of businesses that have too few good reviews. Itâ€™s not unusual for novice companies to ask friends and family to create favorable reviews.
7. Do you guarantee your work?
Read the warranty or guarantee agreement carefully. A good bee removal company will warranty a removal requiring a repair for at least a year.
8. Do you have insurance?
Some companies operate with little or no insurance. Companies should have both liability and workmanâ€™s compensation insurance. This is a good precaution against accidents caused by bee smokers causing fires or beekeepers falling from roofs or trees.
