“(Yelp Review) Reason I Hired Bee Safe: I have had bees in my mint bushes by the pool most of the summer. And occasional other flying stinging bugs in my bamboo. Not sure if they were wasps or yellowjackets or hornets b/c I don't really want to know but I would like them gone or around as little as possible. One of my friends was stung last week so I finally decided to see what could be done. So I called Bee Safe to come inspect my place to see if there is anything they can do.
The Great: Was easy to request a beekeeper come out to inspect my house. Super friendly. Within about 30 minutes of talking to them, a beekeeper, Steven, called me back to schedule a time to come out. He was available for the same day but I preferred to schedule for the following day. He called me about 20 min before showing up, as he had said he would.
The Really Good: When he came out it was one of the days where there really weren't any more bees hanging around the mint bush. Probably because we have recently chopped it down really low. But Steven went around the whole outside of the house inspecting for nests. While he didn't find any nests and only saw one flying stinging bug, he thoroughly searched our bamboo which is where they seem to like to hang out. He assured me that no nests were on our property but mentioned that they could be as close as our neighbors yard. Steven answered all my questions and was polite and friendly, such an important thing to me for a worker coming into my house. I think he may have even put on a fresh shirt before coming in b/c it was blazing hot out but he was cool as a cucumber when he first arrived.
All around great experience. If I ever have an issue in the future, I know exactly who to call.”
“(Yelp Review) I've been using Bee safe for 5 years servicing our apartment complex and they're great! pest control is never cheap but the bee safe warrantee is the best in the busines. I manage a group of apartment complexes and use them a dozen times a year for bees and wasps. I've dealt with probably all of their techs and I hate to pick favorites but Blake and Jeff have to be the most professional and knowledgeable contractors I've ever used (and always a pleasure to talk to)! The biggest plus from using Bee Safe is the warranty. Only had to use it a few times because they're very thorough but those few times I DID need it I'm sure glad I had it because I didn't have to pay a dime and they came out same day to fix whatever was wrong. Will continue doing business with them!”
“(Yelp Review) I'd give them six stars if I could. We found that we had a sizable yellow jacket nest in our wall. Upon inspection by tapping on the wall, we found, in a startling discovery, that you shouldn't tap on the wall to determine how thick the sheetrock. Those darned insects had chewed most of the way through the sheetrock, I think that it was just the paint between them and us, that was until someone tapped on the wall to see how durable it was... well it wasn't! They tapped a sizable hole in the wall right where the nest was. We shoved a towel in the hole, and used massive amounts of duct tape to close it up. We called them late afternoon on Friday, and these fine folks rearranged their schedule to accommodate our emergency! That is above and beyond in my book! They had all of the equipment and skills to handle our situation efficiently, and effectively. They removed the bees, hive, sealed the holes, and even recommended a good sheetrock guy! They are professional, personable, and come with my highest recommendation!”
“(Yelp Review) I contacted this company because of remarkably high ratings on services like Yelp and Google. I had used another bee removal company several years ago, but their ratings were much lower.
Bee Safe Bee Removal is one of those rare companies dedicated to client service, starting with the person who took my call. At least based on my experience. They were able to come a few hours later. They were efficient, friendly, and courteous. The next day I realized there was apparently a new beehive in a tree on the deck of our home, they came in just a few hours to treat it, as promised by their warrantee. That's always reassuring.
Harold, owner of the company, was the tech. When I asked him about his background, he explained his parents had been in the field. You'd say it was in his DNA. While this is his business, it was clear that he was passionate about his vocation.
If you go to their website, you'll see what I found to be a fascinating description of how bees get their work done:
It all begins with one single scout bee looking for a new home for its swarm. In early spring a queen bee will begin to lay eggs again and soon the hive gets overpopulated and instinct kicks in and the bees divide. Half of the colony of bees will swarm with the queen leaving behind the others with a new queen to hatch out to continue the work. The swarm will all fly together and eventually land on a tree branch, bush, mailbox, car or anything they find. This is when the scout bees come into action. Hundreds of bees head out to search for the best Bee Safe Bee Removal location possible for the swarm.
A honey bee will carefully search every inch of your roof line and walls and between the floors. They will find a hole sometimes only big enough for one bee to pass at a time. The bee will go in, measure the cavity and if she likes it, she will return to tell the others. Then 60 to 100 bees will go to the same location to check it out. If they all like it, they will bring the swarm and move in one by one.”
“(Yelp Review) Finally a company that doesn't mess around. While other places I called wasted my time with voice mails, not having experience or just not stepping up to the plate, Bee Safe got this done professionally and the same day. Will definitely call again for future jobs.”
