What Ever Happened to Killer Bees?

CBS Los Angeles story featuring Jeff from Adkins

"Bee Rescue"

A clever parody by Adkins' own Jeff Russell


Expert: Vacant Houses Worsen Bee Problems

PHOENIX -- Bees are swarming the Valley, and the state's foreclosure crisis may be making the problem worse, experts said.

Within the past week, there have been two attacks on people. Lance Neveleff with Adkins Bee Removal said his phone has been ringing off the hook for bee removal service recently.

"They're all over the place right now," Neveleff said ....full story -- Video

Bee attacks increase with warm, dry weather

RAMONA - On Sunday night, O'Dean Negron and Robert Sisson met some neighbors they didn't know they had - 50,000 of them.

Negron was walking the couple's dog on their Ramona ranch that night when he noticed a few bees around the pet's muzzle. The dog escaped with a handful of stings, but newly adopted goats Ed and Fred weren't so lucky. On Monday, Ed was still swollen from the colony's stings but alive. Fred, despite a cocktail of antihistamines and aspirin, didn't survive... full story

At Adkins Bee Removal our focus is to provide live removal options to the general public and commercial sector for bees in walls, structures, chimneys and other locations. We work with beekeepers throughout the U.S. in order to save bees that are removed alive.

We offer Free Estimates and Same Day Service in MANY areas. Call toll-free to check availability! Live bee removal is a difficult job and should not be attempted by someone who does not have experience. After we remove your beehive, it is given to a local beekeeper free of charge! Getting rid of bees is just the first step in the process; bee-proofing a structure so bees don't return is equally important and should be done by an expert, especially after a structural removal.

Our other interests include education; 90% of Adkins employees are currently getting an education. We also give back to local low income community schools. We are in the process of setting up a program in which we give back a percentage of the revenue from all live bee removals performed by Adkins to these communities. Through Donors

The following is a list of cities that we currently provide service in. If you do not see your city on here, feel free to give us a call to see if we can service your area or to refer someone who can.

Bee Removal the LP-White Vinyl

Update Nov-09

This is a 'non related' industry update of a music record release titled "Bee Removal" by Nick Butcher, Nick is an artist & musician, he lives in Chicago, Illinois and is currently focusing on his poster design & print company. You can visit his home page for info about his recently created 2nd album called bee removal, though the song bee removal, may appear to sound simple and slow, to me the song sounds much like what a beekeeper may experience while removing a beehive alive without killing it, it is a surreal experience, and can broaden ones perspective, as does his bee removal song that you can listen to at his MySpace.

If you have a bee problem, we hope we can help you have a positive experience in finding a solution, in addition we expect to be providing service for bee removal in Chicago sometime in the future. As always, feel free to drop us a line. 1-877-723-5467
