Bees keep valley company 'Busy as a bee'

As many as nine crews are answering an average of six calls a day.

"Quite busy, busy like a bee... oh yeah," Aaron Becerril said.

Aaron Becerril with the Bee Man says the bee removal company is experiencing a 20 percent increase in business compared to this time last year.

"Roods, sheds, eaves, stucco, walls, they're pretty much pick a place around your house, they're right there," he said.

Bee tech Jeff Stacey has been at it for 20 years.

"They're just flying and I'm just sucking up the ones that area flying around, then I'm going to caulk everything," he said.

Gently removing bees and doing what he can to ensure they don't return and attack.

"There's still going to be some bees flying around because of the flower," he said.

Our experts say there's a very good reason bees attack.

"Queen is around there somewhere and main hive is there, so that's the main reason," Stacey said.

The Bee Man says if and when they do swarm, go on the defense.

"The best way, keep calm, don't throw water, don't throw soap, don't do anything, just let them be," Stacey said.

Bright colors, perfumes and loud noises also stir the hives.

Aaron says it's best to leave it to the Bee Man if you find one.

All of the bees removed by the Bee Man are taken to a bee farmer for producing honey.

They are not killed.
