There is a large swarm of bees on my property. What do I do?
If the bees are posing an immediate threat or there is a multiple bee sting emergency, call 9-1-1 and provide your name, phone number and the location of the bees. Please remain on the line until you are released by the dispatch operator.

If the bees are not presenting an immediate threat, do not disturb them. Call a pest control company located in the yellow pages.

Because most bee swarm situations occur on private property, the bees must be removed by an experienced bee handler or licensed pest controller hired by the property owner.

If the bees are on City property, City staff will remove them as soon as they are notified. Call (714) 288-2500 for this option.
