swarm on palm leaf
A swarm is the way honeybees reproduce. A new Queen will take some of the worker bees and leave the original hive. The new bees will then travel some distance from the original hive and land on a tree, post, wall ECT. and attach themselves to each other, creating a big ball of bees. From there they will start looking for a new home, (they may have to land several times to get to a new home and may be just moving on) If your property has water or flowers nearby or especially a hive that the comb wasn't properly removed (this is why we recommend removing ALL the comb and honey) they may decide to move into your roof, wall, shed, ect. from there the bees will then quickly build up into a HUGH hive in no time. This is why we recommend having swarms relocated. If you have a swarm (like in picture above) immediately call: 623-882-9190

Hive are when a swarm moves into your roof, wall, tree, shed, ect. They will start to quickly build up comb so they can stores honey and pollen and so the queen can start to lay thousands of eggs each day.
At this point the bees become much more aggressive because they have something to protect. You'll want to get them out of there as soon as possible because they will continue to build and expand till there is over a hundred pounds of hive.
We will remove ALL the comb and bees. This is very important because if you leave all the leftovers (like most exterminators) creating an HUGE magnet for another swarm to move in, even if it is sealed in a block wall the bees will move in a close to that location as possible. Believe me we've seen time and time again.Even after more then a year the smell of the old hive will still be there, we've seen a new hive move right next to a hive that was exterminated more than a year ago.
Better yet since wax has a low melting point it will melt in the summer heat and run down into you house and attract not only bees but mold and other insects.
Having the hive spayed is also bad for other hives in the area because worker bees will gather that poisoned honey and bring it back to there hive. We will remove and relocate the bees at an affordable rate.
We have a lot of experience removing bees out of difficult places and dealing with africanized bees. DON'T waste your TIME and MONEY on a exterminator. Call us now at: 623-882-9190 for a free quote and diagnostic.

BEE PROOFING TIPS
after a live bee removal cut-out we recommend:
- painting the surface were the hive was with paint.
- filling the cavity with insulation
- repair the cut-out within a week or two of the removal
- seal the bee entrance with silicone cocking
bee proofing the rest of your home
- fill any space like a irrigation box with insulation
- cock any place one bee could fit through were there is hollow cavity
- keep an eye out for unusual bee activity
you can not 100% bee proof your home, but following these steps will significantly reduce your chances of ever getting bees again.

WHAT WE DO
LOCATE THE HIVE
The first step is to locate the nesting area if they are not exposed. Often considerable investigation is required to locate the location of the hive within the structure.
ACCESS THE HIVE
once we have fond the location of the hive. we develop an excavation plan to access the beehive in the safest and easiest on everybody.
once we have access to the hive we begin to suck them up in a specially made "bee vac" that will safely relocate them into a bee cage without damage. once we get to the comb we carefully remove it. most of the usable pieces of comb will go back with the bees at our apiary.
WE RELOCATE THE BEES
Once we have the bees and the comb we relocate the mis-nested hive to one of our apiarys in buckeye, AZ
WHY SAVE THE BEES
1. The number of honeybee colonies in North America and around the world has been declining over the past two decades.
2. Loss of honeybees has serious implications for the health and well-being of life on earth.
3. It is estimated that a third of our plant and animal food crops are dependent on honeybee pollination in order to be productive.
4. Without the honey bees pollinating our world, the world would be a hungrier place.
5. A combination of new diseases and parasites as well as stresses caused by modern agribusiness methods have added up to heavy losses of both managed and feral honeybee colonies.
6. Starting in 20006, beekeepers began reporting sharp declines in their honey bee colonies. Because of the severity and unusual circumstances of these colony declines, scientists named this phenomenon colony collapse disorder (“CDD”).
7. We believe that removing and re-establishing honeybee colonies that have nested themselves in areas where they cause conflict to humans is an important step toward the future prosperity of honeybees and humans.
8. Each misnested honeybee colony that can be successfully relocated will continue its vital work of pollinating food and forage crops which humans depend upon.
9. In addition, these unmanaged honeybee colonies are an important source of genetic diversity that can be introduced into managed colonies to increase their ability to survive the onslaught of maladies currently afflicting honeybee colonies.
10. live bee removal is 100% better for the environment
