I got a call the other afternoon from an old person who needed my help.

He was having complications with honey bees in his backyard and he wanted me to get rid of them.

I deduced from our conversation that he was advocating for bee extermination. But, I informed him that I could take them to an up-to-date location. Honey bees are vital to the environment, so bee extermination is seen as a last resort. Most bee removal services prefer rescue and relocation to an up-to-date dwelling or a honey farm. The old person seemed skeptical, but he told me he just wanted them to leave his compound. The bees had set up a small hive next to his outdoor Heating and Air Conditioning component that was in the backyard. He was afraid to go outside since he wasn’t fast enough to get back inside incase of an attack. I understood his worry since bees can be a bit unpredictable. While the majority are calm, especially honey bees, there’s always the risk of an attack. This is why it’s better to contact a honey bee removal business to come and handle relocation. I’ve been in this business for close to a decade and come across many hives and colonies. In my business, my buddy and I offer honey bee removal, wasp rescue, and yellow jacket extermination. And calling a professional protects folks, as my buddy and I are trained in the best way to handle the insects separate from risking injury. Occasionally my buddy and I opt for extermination, but often we just go with removal and rescue. In the case of the old man, I chose to relocate the honey bees to a honey farm several miles away where it was safe for them.
