List of Local Swarm Collectors

bee dot 1Local Honey Bee Swarm Collectors

If you discover a swarm of bees on your property please call a local beekeeper to remove them. An average swarm of bees can contain between 6,000-12,000 bees. Actually, the swarming bees are often very docile at this stage. By having a beekeeper remove these bees you are helping the environment by allowing another colony of nature's pollinators to go back to work pollinating crops and creating honey.

A swarm is a cluster of bees usually hanging on a tree or structure exposed to the elements and can be collected into a hive and removed quickly. Bees that are established inside a tree or structure are much more difficult to remove and may require cutting into the structure, removing bees and comb and then repairs after the bees are removed. Most times cutouts will have costs involved depending on where the bees are located and what it will take to remove them. The swarm list consists of club members who are interested in recovering honeybees within a radius of 10 miles, but on a case by case basis can extend further. If the member in your area isn't available, please contact another listed member. Thank you for your help.
