Who We Are

Mission Viejo Bee Removal is a service provided by The Bee Man. With our corporate offices in Mission Viejo, we provide same-day bee relocation and removal services to residents and commercial accounts. We are available for emergency bee removal 24/7. Our technicians are highly-trained and can resolve any bee infestation you may have.

Bee Relocation

Bee relocation means capturing the bees alive and bringing them to local beekeepers. Mission Viejo is centrally-located, so if beekeepers have enough room to accept new bees, getting them there is no problem. However, not all bee infestations can be relocated. Our technicians are able to assess any situation and perform the best remedy.

Bee Removal

If bee relocation is not possible due to availability at a local beekeeper, the nature of the infestation or the species of bee, then bee removal is performed. Our technicians are highly trained to deal with any bee infestation you may have. Our techniques are minimally invasive, cause the least amount of damage and the safest possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will bees leave on their own?

Costa Mesa Bee Removal - Swarm of BeesBees may leave on their own. It depends on the situation. A swarm of bees, which looks like a ball of bees, is a temporary formation of bees. This swarm of bees is waiting to hear back from scout bees who are looking for a new place to build a hive. A swarm of bees will only last up to 3 days. In rare instances, a swarm may start to build an exposed (open air) hive, but not likely.

If a beehive or colony is established, then there is a good chance the bees will not leave on their own. Once they start building a hive, the colony becomes very territorial and will defend their hive.

How do I remove bees myself?

We strongly urge you to not remove a bee infestation yourself. Orange County has two types of feral bees. The European honeybee is less aggressive than the Africanized honeybee. Africanized honeybees are also known as “killer bees” and will protect their hive with such vengeance that humans can be seriously injured.

Please call us to have any bee infestation removed.

There’s a bee trapped in my house! What can I do?

Costa Mesa Bee Removal - Trapped BeesSometimes bees find their way into a home by entering through the chimney, vent or canned lighting. Don’t worry, these bees are not territorial and are simply looking to escape. Unfortunately, they often fly to the nearest window and buzz along the window pane hoping to get out. The best way to get a bee to leave is to turn off the lights and open a door or window that leads outside. Bees are attracted to light so if the rest of the room is dark, chances are they will leave. However, if a bee just buzzes at a window, they will probably die in a couple hours from exhaustion. Just leave the bee alone.

Aren’t bees endangered?

US Hive Numbers – National Agricultural Statistics Service

There are approximately 4000 species of bees in the world. Recently, a species called the Japanese Yellow Hornfaced located in Hawaii has been placed on the “endangered species” list. However, the types of bees that affect Orange County are known as the European and Africanized honeybees. This feral honeybee population is thriving and nowhere near extinction.

Will bees attack?

Bees only attack when they are threatened. That is why we suggest to not approach any bee infestation you may encounter. There is a species of bee in Orange County known as the Africanized honeybee which is very aggressive. Also known as “killer bees,” these bees will attack with a savage response if threatened. They have been known to seriously injure humans and even kill small animals, so please be careful!

Can the honey from the hive be eaten?

Feral bee honey is not made for human consumption. Bees often use reclaimed water when building their hives. There are also parasites, mites and other chemicals in the honey which can cause serious problems. Do not eat the honey from a feral honeybee hive.

Bee Safety – Do’s and Don’ts

Do These
  • Keep a safe distance from a beehive.
  • Open a window for a bee to escape if caught inside a home/office.
  • Cover the fireplace with a black trash bag if bees are in the chimney (bees are attracted to light and may enter your home).
  • If being attacked by bees, cover your face and run away.
  • Tie back long hair to prevent bees from getting entangled in your hair.
  • Be careful when shaking out towels or clothing as bees may be stuck in the folds.
Do NOT Do These
  • Attempt to remove a beehive yourself because you will probably get stung.
  • Approach a buzzing hive. Stay at least 20+ feet away so the bees do not feel threatened.
  • Swot a bee near its hive/nest because you may agitate the bee.
  • Spray a beehive or a bee swarm (clump of bees) with water or insect repellant.
  • Light a fire in the fireplace to smoke bees out of a chimney because the heat may melt the honeycomb and attract bees and critters for years to come.
  • Attempt to flood or fill with sand or other material any yellow jacket nest in the ground.
  • Wear bright colored clothes near beehives because bees may mistake you for a flower and approach.
  • Wear open-toed shoes because bees, wasps or yellow jackets may be on the ground and sting your feet.
  • Use perfume, cologne, scented soaps or powders since the fragrances may attract bees.
