The Bee Shepherds are a family owned and operated business consisting of my father (Mike Sr.), myself (Mike Jr.) my wife Shelly, and our 3 year old (an aspiring beekeeper) named Noah. We have done hundreds of cut outs and removals and are mature professionals. I am fortunate enough to serve as the expert for Animal Planet's TV show Infested and have been in a few episodes that aired this year. When we are not rescuing bees or tending to our own, I work as an active Duty Master Sergeant in the U.S. Marines and Shelly is an English teacher at Canajoharie High School.
HoursWe will do our best to accommodate your busy schedule and we always recognize the urgency of the situation. We will work weekends and can be at your house very early or very late if that is what suits your schedule. If I am unable to help you in a timely fashion I will gladly try to connect you with a fellow beekeeper who can. We remove bees throughout most of New York from Long Island and New York City to Lake George in the North and all the way west out to Utica. Please see our "CITIES SERVED" page to determine if we cover your particular city. We are happy to travel. We commonly go to New Jersey, and Connecticut if we need to.
As Bee Shepherds, we pride ourselves in the preservation of this important species. One in every three bites of food you eat is directly related to the pollination duties of the honey bee. As such, We WILL NOT remove any bees that have been sprayed with bee killer or pesticides. Please allow us to remove them unharmed to be raised with care in our apiary so that our children may enjoy the benefits bestowed to us by the honey bee.
