Mark and I take you and your family safety seriously, please read these safety tips!
- Do Not attempt to remove bees yourself!
- Do Not spray the bees or their beehive with chemicals or pesticides! Doing so will cause the bees to become defensive, endangering yourself and others!
- Never seal the bee in, they will find their way out! Most of the time the bees way out is into your house!
- Bee Removal is arduous and dangerous, requiring special skills! So, expect to be charged a fee for the removal!
The whole idea of live bee removal is the preservation of wild Texan honey bees! Our entire ecosystem depends on these wild colonies!
Basics of live honey bee rescue!
When a homeowner or a business notices honey bees flying in and out of some hole or crack, they should assume they have a live beehive inside! Most of our network members, including Mark will locate the beehive with thermal imaging technology.
Now, the cavity can be opened and the beehive and Queen bee can be safely removed. With those removed the other honey bees can be caged and relocated to one of our apiaries! Colony saved and going back to work!
Think of it, if we had no wild bees there would not be any mesquite trees for ranchers to complain about! LOL! Also, want would pollinate your backyard gardens?
It’s a real question! You see, Honey bee colony numbers are down again! We lose twenty percent of our managed colonies every year!
These declines have been on-going since 1989! Yet, science had come up with no answers, just guesses!
Pest control kills an estimated half a million wild honey bee colonies each and every year! Hmm, you would think it was illegal!
Bee killers will always give you the pitch that the bee that are in your wall are killer bees and need to be killed! That’s a bunch of bull, the only way anyone can tell the difference is by doing a DNA test, this is the only way of confirming their claim!
Furthermore, The State of Texas recommends that you only use State registered beekeepers to deal with your bee issues.
