Honey Bee Relocation Apprenticeship

Bee Relocation is a fascinating and well paying profession. We only perform live removals. A Bee Removal Technician can make between $30 to $200  per hour while providing a incredibly necessary service to man and nature. Many people who have a bee infestation in their home or in a tree are looking for alternatives to pest control spraying and killing of the bees.  People are becoming aware of the Colony collapse disorder (or CCD for short) which refers to a mysterious malady affecting domestic honeybees that causes them to leave the hive and not return, leading ultimately to death of the colony. (http://www.ento.psu.edu/MAAREC/ColonyCollapseDisorder).  Bee pollinization is necessary for producing 1/3 of all the food we eat on earth.  Think about it!  What would we do without bees?  This profession is economically resilient, being very necessary, and the niche quality of Live removal" makes it even more so.

Our apprenticeship program is guided by our Director of Logos Academy, Steven Behncke .  Students stay with a Bee Removal technician go out into the field with our technicians to remove bee hives from structures and trees and then transport them back to our facility to be hived into permanent boxes and placed into various locations.  Upon graduation the Apprentice will be able to go into business for him (or her)self or become a tech working for EcoBee Removal (see Ecobeeremoval.com).
