If bees are located on City property, please call the Public Works Department to investigate the need for a bee keeper and to confirm that the bees are on City property. If there is a serious problem after normal business hours, please call the Torrance Police Department at 1-310-328-3456. Please be aware that bees frequently swarm through an area and are gone quickly. Please call only if the bees seem to be nesting or building a hive.
If bees are located on private property, the property owner is responsible for the cost of bee removal. Below is a list of bee keepers. Residents may also look in the yellow pages under bee keepers or pest control. Make sure any company or individual you hire has a Torrance Business License. The company/individual should be able to tell you if the license is current.
Residents who call bee keepers or pest control will be responsible for any incurred expenses.
County Vector Control: Phone 1-310-915-7370. L.A. Vector Control will come to private property if bees are not inside a structure. If bees are within a structure, the resident will have to hire a private exterminator.
