Unmanaged (Feral/Wild) Honey Bee Colony Complaints

The County of San Diego CANNOT remove feral (wild) honey bees from private property. We DO NOT recommend that you attempt to remove bees yourself. Bees can be unpredictable, may become agitated, and you, and others, may be stung. Please contact a licensed pest control company or live bee removal company that operates in your area (search "BEES" or "BEE REMOVAL" on the internet or in the yellow pages).
