To protect members of the public from Africanized bees and to facilitate the capture and management of the bee swarms
The bee abatement personnel stationed at the various extension offices manages the Africanized bees, preventing the risk of stinging incidences. There is also an Apiary at the Nariva/Mayaro station where captured bees are housed or may be given to beekeepers that may have been trained in apiculture production by ministry personnel.

The RAN and RAS conduct training on apiculture and value-added production of bee products, candle and winemaking, pollen, and Jelly production. Training on bee abatement is conducted based on requests by companies, for example, the T&TEC which will need to destroy bees on electricity poles.
