Anaheim Bee Removal
Anaheim bee removal can be tricky. Bee Busters has been doing Anaheim bee removal for over thirty years. For most Anaheim bee removal jobs, we must eradicate the bees. We save bees when we can, but unfortunately when performing bee removal in Anaheim, you have to deal with Africanized Honeybees (AHB). Africanized bees arrived in this area in the late nineties. These bees are much harder to work with and pose an imminent danger to the public in Anaheim because they’re so easily set off. Here in OC, apiaries (bee yards) used to be a common sight, but, especially with the danger of existing hives becoming Africanized due to breeding with the wild AHBs, they simply cannot be placed in close proximity to people.
A call to Bee Busters brings help 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We have been providing Anaheim bee removal for over 35 years. We are also active in the beekeeping community and are bee keepers ourselves.
Anaheim Bee Removal Options
- Anaheim Bee Removal (Swarm): The most cost-effective course of action is usually to simply vacuum the bees and put them into a hive box in our apiary. We will then re-queen the colony. We can only take a swarm live if they are exposed. If the bees are in a structure, they can only bee removed alive by opening the structure to do a live removal.
- Anaheim Bee Removal (Colony): Once bees have been living in a location for more than a few weeks they’ll have a significant amount of honeycomb built up in the area. The best course of action is to not only remove the bees, but to have the structure cut open and the comb removed. If left in there, the honey could melt on a hot day and stain and damage your wall. Also, the dead bee larvae (of which there’ll be several pounds!) will attract mice and rats. Additionally the honeycomb acts as a beacon to future bees and opening the space allows for the most thorough preventative measures against reinfestation — packing the void space with insulation. If there’s no cavity in which to build a colony, there is no way for the bees to re infest it!
- Anaheim Bee Removal (Bee Keeping): We at Bee Busters are enthusiastic beekeepers and keep several hundred hives of bees that are used for commercial pollination. We sell honey as well.
Anaheim Bee Removal History
Growing up in this area, I remember it used to be nothing but orange groves as far as you could see. Over the years I’ve watched the Anaheim area grow into the densely suburbanized city it is today. There were once six major commercial beekeeping operations in the area, but they have all been driven out by urban development. Names such as John Ford, Mr Mobley and C.H. Cochran should be remembered as pioneering beekeepers in this area. David Marder, Bee Busters owner, used to work for Cochran. Dick’s Bee Supply was another fixture in the local beekeeping community, but struggled as urbanization drained the local beekeeping industry. Bee Busters bought the struggling operation and rolled it into our own operations. There were no other bee control companies in the area when we started, but dozens have sprung up in the last few years. In the beginning it was just David, peddling around on his bike shaking bees into boxes. Like the community around us, we have certainly grown up and become more sophisticated! We were the very first to use heat-sensing laser-thermometers to find colonies in walls, electric “injectors” to get pesticide deep into hard-to-reach wall-spaces, and many other innovative techniques that our competitors strive to emulate. Check out the video below of our state-of-the-art infra-red imaging, which can find the exact location of the honeycomb inside your structure.
Nowadays, Anaheim is synonymous with one thing to many people: the world famous Disneyland Resort. Disneyland draws tourists to the area from literally around the world, and a whole tourism-based ecosystem of hotels and resorts has grown up around the park. Like a beehive spitting out swarms to start new colonies, Disneyland has spawned clones of itself in Florida, Europe, and Japan, but it all began here in Anaheim.
