Beekeepers have been removing honeybees for many years from problem places for home owners and businesses. The introduction of the Africanized honeybee in the US has caused pest control or "bee exterminating" companies to kill these honeybees for profit. The wide spread propaganda of 'killer bees' has mostly subsided as this Africanized honeybee has intermingled with the European honeybee 40 years ago starting from South America the bee progessed north through Central America and Mexico creating a hybrid honeybee, lessoning the perhaps overly-hyped hostility of the Africanized honeybee.
Some beekeepers in the United States are reluctant to collect honeybee swarms for fear of collecting honeybees carrying Tracheal or Varroa mites, or picking up a swarm of feral bees perhaps in addition to being unfamiluar with the status or regulations of Africanized or hybrid honeybees.
Recent dwindling honeybee population made popular around 2007, known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), and the general environmental consciousness, the public as a whole is shifting to seeking live and non-toxic honeybee removal options when finding bees on their property. Adkins bee removal provides information for learning about and solving bee problems as well as a help-line for the US & Canada for removing and relocating bees from structures of: walls, attics, roofs, chimneys, as well as on shrubbery.
