Does the district remove bee hives from private properties?

No. Hives or swarms found on residential property are the responsibility of the homeowner. If a bee hive is found in or on a private structure, we encourage residents to contact a licensed bee keeper or private pest control company licensed for bee removal. Private pest control operators licensed by the State can be found at

The District may carry out bee removal in cases where hives or swarms are located in a non-structural and accessible location, such as trees and bushes, in a public place where the bees pose an imminent threat to the public.
