Apiest in Florida have worked with the Florida Dept of Agriculture for years to get our right to save bees. It used to be illegal to save bees in some areas and often citizens were to told kill the bees. Now, as of 7-72-13, finally the Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 586, Florida Statutes, and Rule Chapter 5B-54, is in place to assist in the protection of the apiary industry. Were now enabling beekeepers to capture or remove and relocate honeybees.The Florida Department of Agriculture now registers and honors our work. Additionally, some cities and counties also recognize the importance of honey bees and may levy substantial fines for property owners for unlicensed honey bee swarms, or specifically the destruction or killing of a hive. It is not specifically illegal to kill the honeybees as a statewide rule, yet! Pest control companies that make big money killing bees and lobbied against companies like ours to keep us out of the business of rescuing bees. Beyond the fact that a rescue and relocation of a hive is less expensive for the home owner, pest control does not offer a permanent solution to bee problems anyway.
Removing Bees Safely & Providing Care for the Homeowner
Pest control companies rarely take the time to remove the honeycomb and close things up when they are done. In short they don't think like a beekeeper and they don't know the habits of bees. Honeycomb is an incredible attractant to bee swarms looking for a home and if you don't do the job right you are almost guaranteed a re-infestation. That's why those other companies wont give you much of a warranty.
