Boca Raton Bee Removal
|Hello! My name
is Patrick, and I specialize in the removal of honey bee hives from homes
and other buildings. I am based in Boca Raton, Florida, and
service most of southeast FL, including Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.|
I operate a fully licensed and insured pest control business in the
state of Florida. 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!
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 954-756-7969, and we'll
schedule an appointment.|
Bee Control News Clip: Local beekeeper advocates saving the honey makers
“When you see a swarm in a tree, they’re not aggressive, they’re just looking for a new home,” The Boca Raton Bee Removal Pro said. “People think to kill them because they’re scared. They try to kill them, and that’s a sickening sight.”
But some say The Boca Raton Bee Removal Pro’s heart for saving swarms is a quest that goes against the recommendations of State experts. Because of the inability to tell the difference between the docile honey bees and the aggressive Africanized bees, the Florida Department of Agriculture recommends residents who encounter swarms call a trained pest control operator for immediate extermination, not a well intentioned beekeeper.
Dr. Jamie Ellis Jr., entomologist and leader of the University of Florida’s Honey Bee Research and Extension Lab, said the state’s recommendation is a heartbreaking debate in the bee community.
“You get this picture here of everyone on the planet knows about honey bees right now, that they’re on the decline, but African bees are also present,” Ellis said. “I know it sounds harsh and cruel, but it’s the position of the Department of Agriculture has taken for public safety, because you just can’t tell,” he said.
Ellis said north Florida does not have a population of the African honey bees responsible for attacking dogs, horses and even people, but it’s only a matter of time before they migrate to this part of the state.
“A lot of people in the north part of the state like in Broward county may take the approach [The Boca Raton Bee Removal Pro] is taking because African bees haven’t saturated this part of the state yet. But due to their thick presence in south Florida, there’s going to be a day that they’re here, and what if they’re already here?”
But The Boca Raton Bee Removal Pro insists on saving all swarms since Florida’s population of European honey bees has already been hit hard by a curious disease that’s killing bees across the country. Colony Collapse Disorder is the trend of worker bees mysteriously disappearing from hives, which has been responsible for an 80 percent loss in commercial beehives.
With a county rich in peanut, vegetable and barley crops, a loss in bees also means a drop in Broward County’s plant pollination. The Florida Department of Agriculture estimates there is a $20 million increase in production numbers for crops from the natural pollination work done by honey bees alone.
“People don’t realize just how valuable our bees are,” The Boca Raton Bee Removal Pro said. “There’s just so many things growing here that these farmers need us.”
