Bee Control & Removal in San Diego

Few small creatures invoke more misunderstanding and acute fear than the common bee or wasp. Recently San Diego has suffered a sudden and unexplained drop off in our honey bee population. Bees are extremely important to San Diego's environment and agriculture. If the disappearance of bee goes unabated we could begin to see a rise in the cost of produce at are local grocery stores to reflect the cost of importing more bees from out of state or the lose of crop output.

Bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants. It is estimated that one third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination, most of this accomplished by bees. Recently, many beekeepers have experienced substantial losses, prompting the announcement of investigation into Colony Collapse Disorder.

Bees, like ants, are essentially a highly specialized form of wasp. The ancestors of bees were wasps which are predators of other insects. The switch from prey to pollen may have resulted from the consumption of prey insects that were partially covered with pollen when they were fed to the wasp larvae. Bees are highly social and live in large colonies. Each hive has a single queen, workers and drones. In spring, a honey bee hive can contain up to 40,000 bees.
