Things to know about swarm collection

Swarming bees usually don’t sting but it is wise to stay away from the swarm and keep children & pets indoors

Beekeepers collect swarms on a voluntary basis; they are NOT paid to provide this service.

The beekeeper may not be able to come immediately; they have jobs and commitments of their own.


Beekeepers have to consider their own safety; it may not be possible to remove a swarm from difficult-to-reach places.


Some beekeepers may be willing to try to remove established colonies but you may need to call a pest control company.


Please call the beekeeper again to let them know if the swarm flies off or is collected by someone else.
