I found a bee hive on my property. What should I do?

Instead of killing bees from a bothersome hive, removal might be a great option for you. NCAP does not work directly with any bee removal companies, but a good resource to check is Bee Removal Source. They have an extensive list of resources organized by state. It's also helpful to identify the type of bee before contacting a bee removal company. Check our Bees & Wasps page to help with identification and other options for removing hives.

    Here are some ways to attract Amphibians in your garden. As we hate pesticides we dont recommend using them.

    Bee removal source is a great resource! I’ve used the guys at http://beeseriousfl.com/ and they know their bees. Bee hives can contain any number of species of bees. It’s up to you to consider the safety of yourself, as well as the safety of your family, pets, and neighbors.

    You need to know the type of bee it is, if not then be away from them as they might bite you. Do not process yourself to kill them. Contact the Beeremoval person to remove the bees and you may contact to http://ecobeeremoval.com
