Our Bee Removal Company History

Our parent company is a large, Tucson based commercial beekeeping company called Arizona Bee Products. It has been in business since the 1970s. It is a very progressive, sophisticated, honey and pollen producing commercial beekeeping company. One of its founders is Tom Martin. He also founded the bee removal company, AAA Africanized Bee Removal Specialists, Inc. for our parent company and is the president of our company. That was in January of 1993. It was clear to Tom Martin and others in our parent company that African honeybees were going to quickly expand into Arizona.

For over 40 years Tom Martin has been a commercial beekeeper. During the 1970s, he worked as an apiculture researcher for the US Department of Agriculture at the USDA Carl Hayden Honeybee Research Laboratory in Tucson, AZ. He gained extensive knowledge about bees, their behavior and characteristics through his beekeeping experiences, bee removal experiences and his work at that USDA Federal Bee Lab.In the late 1970s, Tom Martin left the Bee Lab to do field beekeeping research for the private sector. He was hired by Arizona Bee Products. Tom Martin has worked for them ever since.

Commercial beekeeping and bee removal is extremely hard work, especially in Arizona. It was clear to Tom that once African honeybees crossed the Arizona border, beekeeping in Arizona would likely change forever. A progressive beekeeping company would have to be prepared to deal with this invasive, aggressive species of honeybees and develop safe, effective bee removal methods. As Arizona law requires a company to be a licensed pest control company in order to control any pest, the chore of becoming a pest control company was undertaken in early 1993. Hence, our company AAA Africanized Bee Removal Specialists, Inc. was founded and completed the rigorous endeavor of becoming a Licensed Pest Control Company.
