All bees and wasps are beneficial. Viable populations of pollinating insects support a healthy environment, and are the keystone to growing food in a living ecosystem. Balanced wasp populations keep flies and caterpillars from becoming a problem.

I do not kill honey bees or bumble bees, nor do I use any kind of poisons. I have been able to find constructive ways to balance the needs of both people and bees.

Bumble bee colonies are moved alive and intact so they can survive into future years. Yellow jackets or wasps that build nests where they conflict with people are removed without poisons or pesticides. Many times I convince concerned homeowners to allow wasps to finish their annual cycle naturally without spending any money at all.

Bumble bee colonies go to my family’s 5 acre farm to help pollenate the garden and orchard. The yellow jackets and wasps that I remove from people’s homes are fed to my chickens.

My name is Samuel

My father started the wasp removal business many years ago, and as I grew up I came with him on service calls, and year by learned all the ropes. Over summers in high school I took on more and more service calls, and soon became an official employee. In the past three years I’ve been studying abroad during the school year, but taking on a larger and larger majority of the work of Eastside Bee Removal each time I return. I just graduated in the spring of 2022, and my dad and I decided that this was the right time for me to continue on the same path and take over the business, and continue providing our top-notch service to the Eastside.

There is a tremendous need for poison-free removals and humane bee relocation services around the Seattle area, and Eastside Bee Removal is the only such business dedicated to serving the area east of Lake Washington. You realize the importance of keeping your family, home and environment clean from deadly chemicals.  I can help you eliminate problems from stinging insects.

I thank you for caring for the bees and for your help in making our neighborhoods clean from pesticides.
