People who have bees in their home or business have more options than they may know about when it comes to removing unwanted bees from their property. “Consider Bee Removal that saves the bees. Green-conscious consumers will be happy to discover there are beekeepers who will relocate bees to a bee yard without poison or the need to exterminate the bees. Considering the decline in bee population, our local pollinators need all the help they can get,” says Toby Vyvjala, owner and the beekeeper behind Angry Bee in Houston, Texas.
“We share the world with bees. They pollinate our gardens, citrus trees, at least 30 percent of the world’s crops and help 90 percent of our wild plants to thrive. However, sometimes they build a nest in an undesirable location and they need to be removed,” explained Toby. Most pest control companies will spray poison and kill the bees but this isn’t good for the environment. There are other options to consider. Toby has been on a mission of education. “I’ve made my Importance of Pollination & Bees presentation to many young students and adults in various groups. One of the messages I share is the individual’s choice between humane removal and poison. We all have a choice to save the bees,” stated Toby. He went on to stress that to make a significant change it begins with educating the individual. Collectively they make an impact and drive change.
