Riverside Bee Removal

Hello!  My name is Trevor, and I specialize in the removal of honey bee hives from homes and other buildings.  I am based in Riverside, California, and service most of southern CA, including LA, San Bernardino, Riverside, and south to Santa Ana and Huntington Beach.

I operate a fully licensed and insured pest control business in the state of California.  I have the best bee removal equipment and training available, and I have the best insurance and licensing available as well.

I have a great advantage over the large pest control firms - first of all, I do better work than them, hands down.  If you hire a big bug company, you'll get an underpaid employee who doesn't really care of the job is done right.  If you hire me, I will arrive at your house, and do the job correctly and professionally, from start to finish.  I have 5 years of bee removal experience, and I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Give me a call!

Superior Bee Removal: We have trained for years specially on bee control and hive removal.  Our experience counts a great deal when it comes to properly understanding the species of bee, and the type of hive that you are dealing with.  My knowledge of architecture means that I am specially prepared to properly disassemble the area in order to remove the hive in its entirety, and fix the open area afterward.  Bees can live in walls, roofs, attics, chimneys, soffits, under decks, and several other areas.  They can even live as a swarm outside of a building, and each different area requires a different approach in order to get the job done right.  I have been known to remove some hives as high as 60 feet off the ground!  Not every bee removal company can do that.  But more importantly, not every bee removal company is owner-operated, providing both the best level of service, and competitive rates, below that of the big companies and their unmotivated employees.  Give me a call at 213-784-4944, and we'll schedule an appointment.

Bee Control News Clip: ‘Bee’ aware of bees Local residents need to keep in mind that the Africanized Honey Bee (AHB) has been established in the area for approximately 19 years. The AHB was positively identified for the first time in Riverside County in 1991. During the early 1990s AHB movement was tracked in South California by government officials in an effort to monitor the northward movement of this extremely defensive bee. Many will recall the blue bee boxes that were utilized for tracking the bee’s northward progress. These bright blue colored traps could be spotted hanging in trees along highway right of ways across San Bernardino County. Once it was determined that the AHB was established in an area, the blue traps were moved to the next suspected area. Notes taken during 1991, at the Extension Office, indicated that 16 percent of the wild bee samples sent to the Honey Bee Laboratory at California A&M University in College Station were Africanized. By the spring of 1992 more than 60 percent of the submitted samples were determined to be Africanized. Since that time, area residents have been cautioned to treat all wild bees as being Africanized. Over the years, wild bee movement in San Bernardino County has been erratic. Fluctuations can probably be attributed to several factors with weather conditions having the greatest influence. Dry weather, especially during the spring months, usually limits wild bee movement. The drought conditions experienced in 2008 and 2009 seemed to have had a tremendous impact in limiting bee activity. In addition to weather conditions influencing bee movement, entomologists have reported that a parasitic mite severely limited populations and movement the past several years. However, conditions are currently favorable for increased bee activity this year thanks in part to the abundant fall and spring moisture. The best protection against the Africanized bee is to understand its behavior. Bees swarm to establish new hives in the spring and fall. During swarming a queen and her workers are looking for a new place to nest. Masses of bees clinging together in swarms generally will not be defensive since they have no nest or young to protect. However, they become defensive once they have established a colony and started raising young. Considering the conditions this spring, Kingsville area residents will want to make bee patrols around their property to insure that a nest or hive does not become established. A bee patrol is simply going around the house, outbuildings, and work place looking for bees that may be entering and exiting holes or cracks in walls and listening for persistent buzzing. These are indicators that a hive or swarm may be nearby. If a bee colony is discovered, have it removed or destroyed immediately. Take steps to bee-proof your home by filling in potential nesting sites such as tree cavities and holes in outside walls. Removing piles of trash, junk, old plant pots and tires will also help in eliminating nesting sites. Bee aware that conditions are favorable for increased bee activity this spring.
