Report a Swarm

Swarming is a part of bees’ natural reproductive cycle, in which the queen and a good portion of the worker population leave the hive to find a new home.  While a honeybee swarm is relatively harmless, it can be a frightening sight to people. Swarms should not be disturbed in any way. It is best to clear the area until the beekeeper arrives to retrieve the swarm.

Our Mission

Our member beekeepers act privately, as
a service to the public, and are not
