Offering free removal of honey bee swarms, and hive removals for established colonies.

Call/text any time at 512-538-5736 and I'll come by as soon as I can.

The bees will not be harmed, and will be relocated to a new hive in my apiary and allowed to grow. If the bees packed away any extra honey, I'll collect it and provide you with the incredible natural sweetener made right on your own property.

I offer relatively inexpensive hive removals, cost based on how difficult it is to access and remove the colony. If the bees are out in the open or otherwise very easy to get to, I'll do it for a low rate that covers the expenses of the work. Sometimes hives are tucked away within walls, inside concrete or stone columns, or in other places that may require demolition to reach; sometimes bees build their homes up high and in awkward locations that can similarly cause a real headache. I will use an inspection camera probe to search around and find the location of the hive, since their exact location is not always evident. Occasionally a hive ends up being far larger than it originally appears, and requires more time and effort to take care of completely. Complicated hive removals may take a full day of work or more to complete - should this be the case, we'll work out a deal after discussing the circumstances. Costs may range between $100-250 for hive removals involving significant work to demolish what's needed and get to the bees, depending on the situation, with discounts for multiple hives. I have all the equipment needed to access bee hives and cleanly remove them wherever they may be, including ropes and harness to work in high places - I've removed Africanized bees while hanging from a rope in full protective gear 20 feet off the ground. I can take care of it whatever the situation may be, and will do my best to save as many bees as possible while ensuring that the hive is gone from your property and will not return.

Please *DO NOT* poison bees, as they're truly incredible and precious creatures that are having enough trouble as it is. Even if a hive is aggressive, they can still be relocated and given a new queen who will raise a new generation of docile bees. Any hive, regardless of how crazy and aggressive they may be, can be saved and adapted for better behavior. I'll gladly bear any stings that may come at me to preserve the colony and let them flourish in a place out of your way. Grab a few containers with lids and I'll fill them up with honeycomb if there's any to be had; it has a different flavor every time and is always great.

Give me a call or a text and we'll work out a plan.
