No, it is not illegal to kill honey bees.
However, it is considered bad practice to arbitrarily kill honey bees without at least making an effort to save them.
If people or property are in danger that is one thing.
Most of the time; however, the bees can be removed live without damaging the property or hurting anyone.
We have seen very few cases where we would recommend having a pest control company come and exterminate the bees.
Reputable pest control companies will first do everything they can to save honey bees before resorting to extermination.
Killing honey bees is often just a quick fix that doesn’t solve the problem and costs more in the long run.
