Swarm Removal

Do you have a swarm of honeybees and don't know what to do? Don't call an exterminator!

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 hometowns of the beekeepers but many are willing to travel and will note so in the comments.)

Swarms inside walls or other structures may be more of a challenge. Unless explicitly stated, the beekeepers listed below will not be able to help you remove bees in a structure or walls.

Follow this link to make sure you are looking at honey bees! Often wasps, yellowjackets, or hornets are mistaken for honeybees. We are only able to provide assistance with honeybees. If possible, take a photo of what you see before contacting someone on this list.
