Bee Removal – Licensing Required

New State law may require licensing of those removing bees.  For more information see this link:  http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2012/sep/16/collier-lee-bee-removal-experts-state-regulations/

It is currently a state recommendation that all bee colonies in and around homes be eradicated by a certified Pest Control Operator (PCO). Recent inspections in South Florida revealed that 70 – 90% of wild bee colonies are now Africanized. Approximately 50% of bee attacks are from a known wild colony that owners thought was “tame.”
