Bee Swarm Removal

 

Call us 24 hours a day and let us know if you have a swarm of bees that you need removed. Once we remove the bees, we put them in a bee hive at our farm and raise them for honey production. PLEASE DON'T KILL THEM! Even if we cannot come get them, we will try to find someone who can!! If they aren't honeybee's, please consider leaving them, if they arent bothered, they won't be a problem. (269) 665-4300. Sorry we only deal with honey bees. If you have wasps, ground bees, hornets or any other insect problem, we cannot help.

 

Below is how to tell if what you have is an actual honey bee swarm.

Swarm Registration

Is it a true honeybee swarm?

Below: These are not honey bees.

These are what you look for in a true honey bee swarm:

 

1. Large solid clump of bee's where the bees are very tightly packed together.

 

2. Generally none of the bees are flying, they should all be very quiet and very docile.

 

3.Even if touched with a broom or stick, they should not fly away, they should stay clumped together.

 

4. A bee swarm generally shows up all at once and will remain in place for a few days (sometimes less), then move on.

 

Honey bees, in warm phase, are almost frozen in place. Even though they look scary, they are the least dangerous when they are swarming.


Swarming occurs when the bee's decide their current home is no longer suitable for the hive, generally because they out grow the hive. They are simply moving around all together, trying to find a new home for their hive.

More times than not, your bee problem is NOT honey bees. So we try hard to make sure that they are, before we drop everything to come get them.

 

 

If in doubt, send us a picture of the bee's on a cell phone.

Give us a call and we'll give you the number to send us a cell phone picture of your bee problem, then we can determine if they are actually honey bees.
