Yes, only if the swarms/colonies are wild (not in managed boxes) and are on your property. The Florida Department of Agriculture (FDACS) recommends that wild colonies be exterminated by bee removal companies licensed in pest control to help prevent the spread of the Africanized honeybee. We do not recommend that you do your own bee removal due to the danger and complexity of the process. We have been doing bee removal for a long time and have learned valuable lessons in providing service safely and efficiently.

Only knowledgeable and registered Beekeepers following rules and procedures outlined by The Bureau of Plant & Apiary Inspection FDACS may relocate wild colonies. In most cases, it’s “smoke & mirrors” when someone says they are providing live bee removal. The bees are still exterminated, but as the customer, you won’t know the difference.  

Bee swarms are generally not dangerous but you should never attempt to eradicate or remove the swarm yourself. Usually, they are simply looking for a new home or resting before the scouts move on to find a more suitable place.
