Richard Brewer and Matt Wolfe work together to remove bees in Boise structures. Consultations are free. Price depends on size, location and age of hive. The greatest part of the cost is in the reconstruction and preservation of the existing structure. Every attempt is made to preserve the bees for relocation into another hive. They will also do what they can to prevent bees from re-inhabiting the location.

Bees in Your Backyard
_Several beekeepers in the area are offering to place a hive in your yard and tend the bees. Costs range from $175 to $250 per hive each year. Check with your local beekeeper on costs. The beekeeper provides all the woodenware, etc. You get to enjoy the bees, watch your pollination improve and split the honey harvest with the beekeeper. (This service is not affiliated with the Treasure Valley Beekeepers Club, we're just providing the information to the local public.) See map below to find a beekeeper near you.
