I am an enthusiastic backyard hobby beekeeper.
I am not a commercial operation and will never be. In short, I do the bee thing to have fun and to try to do my small part to help keep the bees buzzing….. not to mention the delicious sweet honey!!
If you have any comments/questions, or information that you want to share about bee activity on my website, contact me with the form below. If you have Naples area honey bees that you would like removed, give me a little information about the hive location and access. I can not live remove in all situations and I do not charge, but any donation is always appreciated.
I only do live honey bee removals as licensed by the state of Florida (FL0110610B). Expect a quick email reply to any message left, so be sure to monitor your email box.

Points to include in your contact message that will help me tell you what I can do for you…… Initially, I will respond only to your email address.
1) Physical street address of the beehive location?
2) Beehive location (in a tree, in a wall/roof, in a water meter, etc)?
3) How long have they been there?
4) Is there an electric plug available within a few hundred feet of the hive?
5) And, finally, best of all……Send a picture of the hive location and area…AKA, a picture is worth a thousand words!
