I am a professional beekeeper who specializes in rescuing and relocating European Honeybee (Apis mellifera) swarms and hives that are located in inconvenient or problematic locations. I use these bees as stock for my beekeeping yards located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley and lovely Santa Barbara.
In this age of habitat loss and increasing stress on the once abundant Honeybee populations it is imperative that we preserve every hive we can. By humanely removing and relocating problem hives from structures and capturing nuisance swarms before they are destroyed I hope to facilitate the preservation of this essential insect.
Remember that Honeybees pollinate over 30 percent of the food we eat on a daily basis. Hon

No bees are destroyed unnecessarily but are moved to my beeyards in Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara.
