About Swarming and Swarm Removal

Swarming is the Honey Bee's natural way of propagating. Swarming normally takes place in the spring, but can occur during any of the warmer months of the year. When a hive senses that it is becoming overcrowded the workers will raise a new queen, and the old queen will leave with 50%-60% of the worker bees. Swarms will settle on a variety of locations from tree limbs to car doors. They may stay for several hours or for only a few minutes.

Do not disturb the swarm, and PLEASE never spray any kind of pesticide or poison on the bees before calling a beekeeper. Before calling to have a swarm removed please be ready to answer a few questions that the beekeeper will have about the swarm.

The following beekeepers are willing to remove swarms of honeybees from your property.
