Swarm Removal and Swarm Management

We have members who will remove honey bee swarms from inside your walls (cutouts) and around your home. Look below for a listing for your area

A swarm of bees sometimes frightens people, though the bees are usually not aggressive at this stage of their life cycle. This is principally due to the lack of brood (developing bees) to defend, and their interest in finding a new nesting location for their queen. Swarming is the natural means of reproduction of honey bee colonies.

Please note that wasps and hornets are often mistaken for bees

Our members do not exterminate/Remove any insect other than Honey bees.  Please refer to a professional exterminator if you have any insect in the wasp/hornet family.
