What we do
Bee Capture is a small group of local beekeepers in Los Angeles. We establish and maintain backyard hives or roof hives for people who want honeybees on their property. We charge a flat annual fee to set up the woodenware and take care of the hive, and if you want one-on-one mentoring, that is included and it’s a great way to learn beekeeping. We service most of the metropolitan LA area.
One way we get our bees is by removing colonies from places they are not wanted. We use techniques for removing them alive and relocate entire colonies. Whether a new swarm or established hive, we relocate them to a back yard, or to one of our own small bee-yards in Los Angeles County. All of our Bee Removers are beekeepers. Urban beekeeping is an important part of what we do.
How we work
Every bee problem is different. You might have bees in your roof, eaves, barbeque, fence, in a tree in your backyard, or a swarm hanging over your front door. We come out to your property, assess the situation, and give you an estimate. Sometimes we can remove the bees at once.
We remove the bees alive, and we take out all of their comb too, without using any chemicals or poisons. We take them, their stores and their “furniture” to their new home in boxes that are specially made for bee transport! Here’s a YouTube video about how Bee Capture does live bee removals:
