We Save The Bees!

It’s a myth that bees need to be exterminated. No matter WHERE the bees have established themselves, we can safely remove them. With state-of-the-art tools and experience, you and the bees will be in good hands! 

Long lasting results..

As beekeepers ourselves, we know how bees operate. We ALWAYS remove the entire beehive (comb, bees, and all). IF left behind, a new bee swarm will most likely move back in again.


We do NOT use any chemicals in our removals. We believe it is imperative to have them saved with the declining bee population. Having your bees rescued on all accounts is more effective than extermination.

 There are many pest control and bee exterminators in Phoenix, AZ, but we do not believe the majority can adequately handle a beehive.

Here is what I mean by that and why you should choose an alternative to a bee exterminator here in Phoenix.

Honey bees are not your average “pest.” 

They are very sophisticated creatures;  there are thousands of bees in each colony, making up the hive. It only takes 24 hours before they have built honeycombs, and in a week, the beehive can be bigger than a basketball. These insects are incredibly crucial for the pollination of plants. 1/3 of the world’s food is directly related to their vital service.   

Getting the bees removed by relocating them is the BEST approach. 

Unfortunately, the most common approach to bee removal is to have them exterminated. This kills the existing bees and leaves everything they built where it was. The dead hive mess will attract new pests like moths, roof rats, and ants. Bees also will return to areas where bees have lived before. They can smell out pheromones and honey (even if there are chemicals or repellent), and they will signal their swarm to move into the previous colony’s beehive. The extermination approach to bee control causes more issues as opposed to bee relocation.

It takes an experienced beekeeper to handle a bee removal properly. 

Bee removal requires a lot of knowledge and expertise. Bees get themselves into all kinds of trouble and, at times, can be aggressive. Getting access to a beehive and removing them takes experience in beekeeping and construction. With every beehive removal, anything the bees have built needs removed along with the bees themselves. After the removal, the removed bees will need to be taken to a new home. An Apiary and beekeeping knowledge is required for this. 

Due to all these reasons, we believe only a beekeeper trained in bee removal should perform removals. 

We have extensive experience in bee removal and the habits of bees. We keep on average around fifty beehives year-round at our different apiaries. bWe have narrowed our craft down after safely removing and relocating thousands of beehives from almost every situation. 

Honey Bee Rescue and Relocation is all we do!

Jon did an excellent job. I had to replace the floor in my shed anyway so I had a chance to get a good look at what he had done. We had 65000 bees under the shed floor. He removed them live, removed all the hive and gave us really solid information on how to ensure that the bees didn’t return. Four hours of solid work!


So detailed and courteous. He cleaned up any and all mess, was very careful with my home, very thorough, very honest about what would run me the best price, very knowledgeable, very flexible with scheduling. 100% satisfied with this bee removal company. Quality that is affordable! Other companies I called tried to rob me blind, but this one is AWESOME! I even got to keep some honeycomb and made a jar of honey fresh from the attic lol. Amazing job.


We had a swarm of bees unexpectedly choose our garden/yard near the pool where the children often play. I sent a picture to Jon and within a few moments, he called me. He came out that same day and handled it all quickly and efficiently! He even called and gave me an ETA when he was done with his last job. That kind of service has gotten more and more rare as I’ve aged. He is a polite young man who knows the subject of bees well.

Common Bee Removal Q/A

Can I remove a beehive myself?

      No, bee removal is not a DIY project. If you start spraying things on a beehive, you will kill some bees, but there are thousands in a beehive. You most likely will end up making them angry. Please don’t attempt to seal them in either. We have seen this go very poorly. Sealed in, bees will try to find a new entrance and start flooding into the home. They also can chew through many sealants. If you see bees, the best thing to do is call a beekeeper specializing in bee removal and have the bees properly relocated.

Are Killer Bees a problem in Arizona?

      I’m sure you’ve heard of the infamous killer bees. And yes, we do have them here in Phoenix, Arizona. Because of this, caution must be exercised around any beehive you may come across. It is a common myth that you can distinguish an Africanized bee from a domestic honey bee by looking at it – this is false. While they do have some differences, it is very subtle. Microscopes are required to tell if they have the killer bee gene. 

     With that said, not all bees in Phoenix, AZ, are Africanized. Arizona is home to many docile bees. Even bees that have been Africanized vary in the level of defensiveness. It is a common scared tactic in Phoenix, AZ, to label all bees as killer bees and say they need to be exterminated. This is NOT true. Any bee control technician that says the bees are Africanized and need to be exterminated does not know what they are talking about. They very possibly are NOT Africanized; even so, if all bees labeled Africanized were exterminated, we would have no bees in the southwest. 

Can Bees be removed without killing them

     100% Yes! We do it every day. It takes patience and skill but can be done in pretty much any circumstance. We’ve removed bees from roofs, walls, water meter boxes, shed floors, mountain caves, trees….you get the idea. We use a special ‘bee-vac’ to vacuum the bees into a holding cage. Once we get the queen bee, worker bees, and honeycomb, we relocate the beehive to an apiary. 

3. Reasons to choose live bee relocation over extermination!

1. To Save the Bees!

With bees in decline, it is essential to have them saved. When a beehive is exterminated, it not only kills the bees inside of the hive but can potentially harm other bees in the area if they eat the poisoned honey that is often left behind. 

2. Better Results.

If chemicals are just sprayed on a beehive to exterminate the bees, everything the bees build is left behind. There can be upwards of 100 lbs of honeycomb and bees in any beehive. This WILL attract MORE pests and double the chances of you getting bees again. With bee relocation, everything gets removed. Having the bees properly removed and relocated will be more conclusive and will actually remedy the bee issue. 

3. Bee Extermination Can Cause Additional Issues.

If honeycomb and brood are left in your wall or ceiling, it will melt and rot. Yes, honey doesn’t go bad, but it will melt into your drywall and start dripping in the Phoenix, Arizona heat. The brood comb (the baby bees) and the bees themselves will rot. This can cause a stench and attracts other pests such as roof rats, ants, moths, and cockroaches.
