Beecasso visiting his bees at one of the Sanctuaries. This beautiful hive is doing so good. They were rescued from a Los Angeles structure and now living free of noise and pollution.

Another amazing save from Beverly Hills CA I want to thank Aj for calling us out to save the bees instead of calling an extermination bee company. We save em take em and relocate them. Nothing but love for the planet and what's on it.
Beecasso loves our planet.

The bees are out and about today! Check out this live swarm removal over in Marina Del Rey. 🐝🐝🐝. #beecasso #savethebees #sunshine #marinadelrey
Happy Friday! Thought you might like to check out this nice swarm removal.
An amazing new location for Becassos' new sanctuary. This is where your bees go to live when they are relocated. They have a safe haven with plenty of food and water and miles of orchard lands to pollinate! SAVE THE BEES!
Bees are losing habitat all around the world due to intensive monoculture-based farming practices, pristine green (but flower-barren) sprawling suburban lawns and from the destruction of native landscapes. Just planting flowers in your garden, yard, or in a planter will help provide bees with forage. Avoid chemically treating your flowers as chemicals can leach into pollen and negatively affect the bees systems. Plant plenty of the same type of bloom together, bees like volume of forage (a sq. yard is a good estimate).
Here are a few examples of good plant varieties: Spring – lilacs, penstemon, lavender, sage, verbena, and wisteria. Summer – Mint, cosmos, squash, tomatoes, pumpkins, sunflowers, oregano, rosemary, poppies, black-eyed Susan, passion flower vine, honeysuckle. Fall – Fuschia, mint, bush sunflower, sage, verbena, toadflax.
Contrary to popular belief, a lawn full of clover and dandelions is not just a good thing—it’s a great thing! A haven for honeybees (and other native pollinators too). Don’t be so nervous about letting your lawn live a little. Wildflowers, many of which we might classify as weeds, are some of the most important food sources for native North American bees. If some of these are “weeds” you chose to get rid of (say you want to pull out that blackberry bush that’s taking over), let it bloom first for the bees and then before it goes to seed, pull it out or trim it back!
Yes, they make your lawn look pristine and pretty, but they’re actually doing the opposite to the life in your biosphere. The chemicals and pest treatments you put on your lawn and garden can cause damage to the honeybees systems. These treatments are especially damaging if applied while the flowers are in bloom as they will get into the pollen and nectar and be taken back to the bee hive where they also get into the honey—which in turn means they can get into us. Pesticides, specifically neo-nicotinoid varieties have been one of the major culprits in Colony Collapse Disorder.
The honey you buy directly sends a message to beekeepers about how they should keep their bees. For this reason, and for your own personal health, strive to buy local, raw honey that is from hives that are not treated by chemicals. It can be hard to find out what is truly “local” and truly “raw”–and even harder yet to find out what is untreated. Here’s a few guidelines: If you find it in the grocery store and it’s imported from China, don’t buy it. There have been a number of cases recently of chemically contaminated honey coming from China. If it’s coming from the grocery store, but it doesn’t say the words “pure” or “raw” and you can’t read in the description that it’s untreated by chemicals, don’t buy it. If it’s untreated, the label will say, as this is an important selling point. We recommend a simple solution for most people. Go to your farmer’s market and shake hands with the beekeepers you meet.
You may not have known this one—but it’s easy and it’s true! If you have a lot of bees starting to come to your new garden of native plants, wildflowers and flowering herbs, put a little water basin out (a bird bath with some stones in it for them to crawl on does a nice trick). They will appreciate it!
Honeybees are vegetarians. They want to forage pollen and nectar from flowers up to three miles from their hive and bring that food back to provide food for themselves and the beehive. Contrary to what the media might have us believe, they are not out to sting us. Here are a few tips to avoid getting stung. 1. Stay still and calm if a bee is around you or lands on you. Many bees will land on you and sniff you out. They can smell the pheromones that come with fear and anger it can be a trigger for them to sting you. 2. Don’t stand in front of a hive opening, or a pathway to a concentration of flowers. Bees are busy running back and forth from the hive, and if you don’t get in their way, they won’t be in yours. 3. Learn to differentiate between honeybees and wasps. Honeybees die after they sting humans (but not after they sting other bees!), wasps do not. Wasps are carnivores, so they like your lunch-meats and soda. Honeybees are vegetarians.
Our New BeeCasso honey bee Sanctuary is doing great. The bees are so happy at their new home and location , after being removed from structures where they could have been killed by pest control and other bee removal companies.
BeeCasso loves to remove and relocate our precious honey bees.
A successful live bee removal with Beecasso!
If you look closely you can see the queen. This hive was safely removed and relocated to a Beecasso Sanctuary.
Beecasso is focused on education, and we would like to begin with showing you some techniques in live bee removal and relocation.
This is the first of many videos to come of 'How To Save The Bees.
Live swarm removal with Beecasso. No bees were harmed during this removal. They all gathered inside the box within 10 minutes and will be safely relocated to a Beecasso Sanctuary.
Did you know...
Here at Beecasso Live Bee Removal our main focus is the preservation of honeybees. Just recently several bee species have been put on the endangered species list for the first time, now more than ever we need to be conscious and aware of the vital role bees play in all of our lives. Honeybees are major pollinators of the planet, they create 90% of the food we eat, they pollinate the trees that sustain our life.
Every time we remove a hive from a property it is safely relocated to a Beecasso Sanctuary to thrive, or donated to beekeepers and apiarists in California. Today was an amazing day as we have a new bee lover in our midst.
Beecasso is setting up new beehives at a wonderful new location. We Want to thank Jacoba who is helping with the preservation of the honey bees by keeping bees on her property and who is working to getting more people involved and working to get more locations for Beecasso bees.
Thank you so much Jacoba.
You may think that bees are just producers of honey that occasionally get trapped in your conservatory, but in fact they play a vital part in helping provide at least one third of the food we eat. Bees are essential in pollinating both crops and other plants – especially those which grow in your garden and the wild – and without them there would be no-one to provide what is a vital service. Animals eat the plants that bees pollinate just as we do, and fruit trees would not provide fruit without pollination. This is a major consideration when talking of the plight of the bees.
Why are bees dying?
Bee-keepers have noticed a vast increase in the numbers of bees dying in recent years, and there are many theories as to why. None have been proven, but some hold more water than others. A phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder was first observed in the USA and involved entire colonies of bees dying out, and while there have been instances in the UK it is not considered to be a major cause. More likely causes are the increased use of insecticides and other chemicals, plus the rise in the growth of genetically modified crops. Also, non-native bees – there are many more species in this country now and only 25 native species left – may be responsible, and mites that carry diseases have been cited by some sources. All we know for sure is that bees are dying, and that it is a problem that is being largely underestimated.
How can i help?
Bees favor certain types of flower that can also enhance a garden, and providing these is relatively simple. Look for cornflowers, buddleia and poppies, plus fruit trees and shrubs, rhododendron and other flowering shrubs. If you can, create a wild flower section in your garden for bees thrive on many types of commonly found wild plants. You may also consider keeping bees, an interesting and rewarding hobby that need not be expensive and also provides you with honey, if you have the space!
