1. We all need bees. Honey Bees pollinate much of the food we eat. Scientists and agricultural economists continually cite the figure "three out of every ten bites we eat are pollinated by bees."
2. Use of pesticides by extermination companies is a prime source of systemic poisoning of honey bees throughout the continent. When bees are poisoned, often they contaminate their hives' honey stores before dying. Bees from healthy colonies later find the "abandoned" honey in the dead-out hive and carry it away. As the healthy bees feed themselves and their young on the contaminated honey, sick and dying bees develop. In many cases bees are born weak, retarded, infirm and/or susceptible to diseases or parasites. Entire beekeeping operations--thousands of hives--have been wiped out from just a single misuse of insecticide that the bees distributed among themselves. Colony Collapse Disorder is, in many cases, as attributable to pesticide misuse as any other possible cause.
3. When bee colonies are humanely captured, they can contribute to the welfare of our farms, gardens and commercial agriculture. Please bear in mind that bees successful enough to move out of their prior home into a new one are the bees that have adapted to the local environment. These bees are the kind most serviceable to humans.
4. When bees are converted from "wild hives" to "managed hives" they pose less threat to native bee species such as bumble bees, leafcutter bees and others which are a natural part of the ecosystem.
Who Are These Bee Whisperers Who Would Rather Save Bees Than Kill Them?
Several career scientists, entrepreneurs, beekeepers and philanthropists have contributed to American Bee Control. In 2012, American Bee Control obtained exclusive rights to proprietary technologies developed by BugNovations. These technologies include the revolutionary Green Bee Machine™ and the state-of-the-art Honey Bee Hotel™ (a high-efficiency bait hive for capturing swarms in search of permanent hive sites) enable lower costs and higher efficiencies that ever before possible in the field of "bee problem mitigation" work.
Greg Denker, a native of Tucson, is also a principal in BugNovations. He has championed no-kill methods of bee removal and swarm trapping since first called into public service in 1968 to remove a swarm from the athletic grounds of Palo Verde High School. Formerly a director of one of America’s leading-edge materials science development laboratories and program manager of defense projects as Lockheed Martin Systems Integration, he now focuses his creativity and public speaking efforts on educating Americans to save every bee colony possible.
Other like-minded scientists, technologists and beekeepers contribute to American Bee Control. This includes going out on bee removal jobs, building custom equipment and participating in bee-welfare research project.

Did you know that on average, every day of the year, hundreds of bee colonies throughout Southern Arizona are exterminated because the (human) residents were unable to find a beekeeper who would remove the hive alive. By using your Facebook to "like" American Bee Control, you can greatly increase the number of people who can find a humane solution to unwanted bees.
