Do you have a swarm of honey bees and don't know what to do?

 

400px-Bee swarm smWe may be able to help! Swarming, while frightening to those unfamiliar with it, is a natural part of a bee's reproductive cycle.

First, don't panic. Contact a beekeeper closest to you for swarm removals. (Towns listed are the home towns of the beekeepers but many are willing to travel.) Please make sure you are looking at honey bees! If possible, take a photo of what you are looking at before contacting someone on this list.
