The Bee Wrangler's Approach to Bee Removal

The Bee Wrangler removes bees and relocates them to carefully-selected farms in the Houston, Texas area, where they pollinate crops and produce honey. Our approach is organic and sustainable. We do not expose our customers or our bees to poisons or pesticides.

In conjunction with the Harris County Beekeepers Associaion, all colonies are provided with a new hive and opportunity to prosper in a new environment, whether in the city or on a farm. We always keep our bees away from poisons, and we do not feed them cane sugar, corn syrup, or other nectar substitutes.

Honey Harvest for Zelko Bistro

Jen, the Bee Wrangler, working bees in June, 2012. Collecting honey-filled supers for handoff to the exquisite hands of Zelko Bistro. Unprecedented summer growth early in the year has led to Jen being booked through the end of July, with no letup in sight.


Bee Wrangler on Channel 11 News Channel 11 spent a day with the Bee Wrangler, featuring bee removal and a farmer who uses the bees to guard his old equipment. March 28, 2012 - 7:59 am
The Proof Is in The Honey!
As a result of how we handle bees and work with farmers and chefs, our honey is the finest available. The quality and purity have been independently lab-tested and recognized for culinary excellence by Zelko Bistro (Houston, TX), who chose The Bee Wrangler as their exclusive source of honey, following systematic search for the best honey in Texas. Zelko Bistro is The Bee Wrangler's exclusive food service partner, the only restaurant or bistro where our honey is available. We wanted Zelko Bistro to be our exclusive retailer of our honey, because
  • Zelko Bistro is the best there is in handling food. Just drop by and see for yourself.
  • Working together, the Zelko Bistro and The Bee Wrangler provide the finest honey available anywhere.
  • Leadership in protecting and enhancing the food chain, where beekeeping and honey production is just one of their many pursuits on behalf of public good.
The chefs at Zelko Bistro provide the final touches in making our honey ready for the retail market. Zelko Bistro handles extraction, filtering, testing, packaging, and labeling our honey. Zelko
Preserving the wild bee gene pool is vital to health of the global ecosystem. According to The Bee Wrangler, man-made and incorrectly-fed bees, such as those in most common used by large scale pollination companies, have higher rates of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Bees in the care of The Bee Wrangler have substantially-improved survival rates than average commercial honey bees, because the bees' natural defenses and vitality of the hives are more stronger, more healthy, and more active. Due to their genetic variability, wild bees are able to withstand disease and parasite without the use of harmful chemicals. The Bee Wrangler is proud to provide bees for the Houston Heights Bee Project in Houston's Heights district.

The Bee Wrangler's Mission

Remove bees with no harm to the bees or to the environment. Pesticides are never used in removals or in mite control for our hives; we use screen bottoms on the hive box for ventilation and for control of the Varroa mite.  Aggressive colonies are re-queened with the hardier Russian bees which are kept at all our farms and at the Houston apiary and genetic testing is available through Texas A&M to determine if the Africanized gene is present.  Upon completion of the removal, we make every effort to minimize impact on structures, and provide contact information to reputable contractors with experience in returning the house/structure to the condition it was in prior to removal. We provide necessary pollination services and sell honey at local farmer's markets. We do this to ensure that locally grown produce and honey are available to the Houston community. This creates an intimate relationship between the land, the food and the people, perpetuating respect for all beings involved in this dynamic process.
