Insight Pest Solutions DOES NOT kill Honey Bees.  In select markets, we have equipment to safely relocate colonies to local bee-keepers so they can continue their beneficial work.

General Info: Honey bee colonies are the only bee colonies that can survive to last many years. They are benefical to other animals and plants because of their role in pollination. This includes humans. They are very social instects. There are divided into three groups: the workers (female), the queen, and the drones (male).
