Save the Bees!

Why save bees?

It's no secret that bees play a vital role in our environment. Scientists say that every third mouthful of food on our planet is made thanks to bees that pollinate our crops around the globe. Without bees, our food resources would be severely diminished.

The bees don't have to be killed.

Often, there's little reason to exterminate bees. We do our best to save the bees, especially since they are under threat from environmental changes, pesticide use, and pest and diseases that can contribute to colony collapse disorder. Capitol Bee CARE LLC will use an array of tools including a bee vac or special bee boxes to collect the bees so they can be transferred to a bee apiary. ​

We have extensive experience removing bees from hard-to-reach areas, including trees, under eaves, under porches, in attics and from inside walls.

Bee trees....

​If you have bees in a tree it's a good thing. We need our feral bees and if we cannot allow them to stay in our structures, the trees are all they have. Rule of thumb, if the tree is healthy and is in an area not exposed to people, a safe height for those bees is about 20' above the ground or higher. We recommend and like having bees in trees, great for the environment and the neighborhood!
