Welcome To Desert Swarm Bee Removal, LLC
Desert Swarm Bee Removal, LLC is a locally owned and operated family business providing a number of professional bee removal and consulting services to the Tucson metropolitan area. Service areas include Tucson, Oro Valley, Catalina, Saddlebrooke, Vail, Green Valley, Sahuarita, Amado, Tubac, and Three Points.
All of the feral (wild) honey bees in southern Arizona are presumed to be Africanized. Check out this honey bee fact sheet published by the Univerisity of Arizona!
Africanized bees can be extremely aggressive and dangerous to both humans and pets if they perceive a threat to their hive. If you suspect there are bees on your property, we highly recommend that you hire a professional bee removal company that is licensed, insured, and trained to handle Africanized bees. Bee control should never be attempted as a “do-it-yourself” project due to the risk of danger involved.
But there is no need to worry, we are here to help! Desert Swarm has the experience, expertise, knowledge, and equipment necessary to diagnose and safely resolve a variety of Africanized bee issues. On a daily basis, we handle bee issues ranging from the removal of newly arrived bees (a swarm) to the removal of well-established beehives in homes.

Is Live Removal and Relocation an Option?
Our number one priority is to keep your family, pets, the public, and our specialists safe during a removal. We will only perform live removals of newly-arrived swarms, if it is a safe option. Safety risks associated with live removals depend on the size and accessibility of the swarm. This is evaluated by the bee specialist onsite at time of service.
We will only consider live removals of swarms that are:
1) Newly-arrived and not well-established
2) Completely exposed and have not moved into a structure
3) Relatively accessible (e.g. a swarm that is resting in a tree)
We do not offer live removals for swarms that are well-established or have already moved into a cavity or structure due to the territorial and aggressive nature of Africanized bees. Either way, we can solve your bee problem effectively and safely!
Desert Swarm values the importance of bees as pollinators, so if we can safely perform a live removal of a newly-arrived bee swarm, we will! Bee swarms that are removed alive, are then relocated to one of our own locally managed hives!

What The Client Says
“Came home to a swarm in one of my established mesquite trees high in the air…My call was answered immediately by the owner. He asked me a few questions about what I had found and was able to swing by my house within the hour. Within 45mins. the swarm was handled and cleared. He also inspected the house to see if the bees had inﬁltrated any available spaces on the property. Owner is passionate about bees and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you sooo verymuch!… Standing ovation all around. I go as far as calling this man a true “Bee Wrangler”. All at a very reasonable price.”Jared C, Tucson (via Google)
“This company is the one to go with for your bee needs! Greg is very nice and knows what he is doing. We called Sunday evening after they kept invading INSIDE our bathroom. Greg came out the very next morning, quickly ﬁgured out what kind of bees they were and where they we regetting in. He sprayed to stop them from coming around and even patched up the crack where they were getting in. I would recommend this company over any other ina heartbeat. Oh, and the price was VERY reasonable!.”Nikole Padgen, Tucson (via Google)
