Los Olivos Honey Bees

  • We are backyard hobbyist beekeepers in Los Olivos, California
  • Our bee management philosophy is to provide desirable homes for bees. We do not use any chemical or antibiotic treatments. We also practice organic gardening.
  • Honey Bee Swarms

    • Swarm Removal -- we are happy to rescue any exposed honey bee swarms in the Santa Ynez Valley (Buellton, Ballard, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Solvang). We also do easier honey bee removal jobs (such as from sprinkler boxes).

      For help with other bee removal issues, see
    • Honey bee swarms are generally docile. The bees are just looking for a new home. Swarms are the natural way that a bee colony reproduces itself. Swarms are rarely defensive, as the bees have no brood or hive to protect. Before leaving their hive, the bees gorge themselves on honey to provide energy to create wax comb in their new home, and as such are too bloated and cumbersome to use their stingers. The swarm is simply waiting for scout bees to find a new home. When the new home is found, the swarm will fly off (usually within two days).
    • If you live in the Santa Ynez Valley, and are interested in beekeeping, please Contact Vic. We would be happy to help or mentor you. As we do swarm captures and bee removals, we often have extra honey bee colonies in need of a good home. If you're interested, please Subscribe to our E-Mail List.
    • Honey bees can be safely relocated...
      Please do not spray nor kill honey bees.
