At Vegas Bees, our mission is to save the bees, the vital pollinators, by providing them with a comfortable environment in the Joshua Tree Preserve. Through our bee removal and relocation services in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, we ensure these precious insects continue to thrive and play their vital role in the ecosystem.
Our Joshua Tree Preserve Honey Bee Haven
The Joshua Tree Preserve is home to our rescued honey bees. Our hives at the preserve are flourishing, thanks to a combination of natural beauty and our dedicated care. The bees enjoy solar-powered fountains for hydration, which are not only crucial for their survival but also attract a variety of wildlife to the preserve.
The pristine desert location offers clean air and beautiful weather, which contributes to the bees' overall well-being.
Fresh water is essential for honey bees, and the solar-powered fountains at the preserve provide a reliable source of clean water throughout the day.
By ensuring a steady supply of fresh water, we help maintain the health of the bees and the delicate desert ecosystem. We hope you will make one for your own backyard. Don't forget, you want to make it shallow, as bees don't do well in swimming pools.
The bees carry lots of the water away to their bee hives, but many others also enjoy this fresh water. The sound of running water attracts various wildlife, including chickens, cats, ground squirrels, lizards, many different birds, and foxes, to name a few.
However, we do have three fountains and two ponds set up all around the preserve. See the honeybee water fountain.
We know how important the freshwater supply is to all our bees and friends at the Joshua Tree Preserve. They bring us much joy to watch them all stop by for a drink and relax by the fountains.
They are easy to maintain and care for. We hope you will make one for your own backyard. Don't forget you want to make it shallow, not deep. Bees don't do well in swimming pools.
The Joshua Tree Preserve is home to our rescued honey bees. This beautiful three-acre unspoiled property is in the high desert of Arizona. We are not the Joshua Tree Park in California, we are two very different places.
It sits 3,500 feet above sea level and has the cleanest air, a beautiful desert environment, and most beautiful weather.
The bees love to live here and are happy to be in such a pristine natural area. We provide a few bee water fountains and very shady spots for their hives.
There is little to no pesticide use here, as most of the people that live here are nature lovers and respect the desert.
We know it is important not to spoil this beautiful and fragile desert. However, the well-documented threat of climate change is always present, and we should do what we can to keep the desert and the honey bees in good health.
The winters are freezing, while the summers are scorching. Therefore, a must-have item is insulated hives.
To create the ideal environment for our honey bees, we take several measures to protect them from the harsh desert climate.
Insulated hives are essential for shielding the bees from freezing winters and scorching summers. We also plant shade trees and cover their roofs with large foam boards to provide additional protection from the sun's extreme heat.
By consistently improving their living conditions, we contribute to the long-term survival of the honey bee population.
See our Bee Friends doing great things for the bees too.
In addition to the measures taken at the Joshua Tree Preserve, we encourage individuals to create their own DIY honey bee water stations. These simple and effective water fountains can be made using a bucket, PVC pipe, fresh water, and a tennis ball.
The bees can drink from the small crescent-shaped area created by the floating tennis ball, ensuring they remain hydrated and healthy.

We specialize in honey bee removal and relocation from our customers' homes. We will come to your house and gently remove your hive and colony. They do not need companies to exterminate them for any reason.
We must remove all honeycombs. This may appear time-consuming, but if done incorrectly, pests like mice and bugs will locate the combs. Bee extermination will only cause more issues in the future and attract all the rodents and bugs to the area.
You want the job done correctly by beekeepers who are experts in hive removal and relocation in Las Vegas.
We enjoy tackling many bee hive removal and beehive relocation projects. Since the bees like to make their hives anywhere they want, this keeps us challenged and always learning.
