BEE REMOVAL

BEES ON MY PROPERTY!... What Should I do? 

Thank you for caring about bees and wanting to know about bee removal options.  Due to liability issues we cannot remove bees from private or commercial structures, nor recommend beekeepers that do so.  However, you may be able to find a registered beekeeper who uses non-lethal methods (not all on this list save or do live removals) on a list provided by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Agricultural Environmental Services:

The above methods may not help you locate ONLY a "live bee removal rescue relocation specialist"... if you feel that LIVE removal is the ONLY option for you (do not want to kill or exterminate), then try the following:

Still not finding somebody to remove, rescue, and relocate your live bees?... then another method which has proven successful is to use GOOGLE with the following KEYWORDS which narrow down the results to somebody in your area who may not exterminate your bees:  Try searching for  live bee removal relocation rescue fort myers florida  However, substitute your city (i.e, live bee removal relocation rescue alva florida or live bee removal relocation rescue lehigh florida and you should get applicable results.  Also, don't be fooled by the results at the top of the search results nor the ones along the right side of the search results marked "Ad" or "Ads" for those are paid results which are not always applicable.  Look for top results immediately below the "Ad" (these are known as "organic" search results) and which are more likely to provide the service for which you searched instead of paid results.  Do NOT include the word "free" in your search which often leads you to many removers which are not really free and could result in a sad removal experience.

NOTE:  BEE REMOVAL SERVICES ARE NOT FREE!... there is a charge for live bee removal services!
