There’s gold in your backyard

It’s the pollen that honeybees collect and distribute among trees, flowers and vegetable plants to help them grow. We rely on honeybees to pollinate one-third of our food supply. These small, but mighty creatures are vital to our existence!

LCBA Swarm Removal List


Check and make sure they are honey bees. Yellow jackets and wasps are often mistaken for honey bees.

Once a swarm moves into a wall or hollow tree it is no longer a swarm and may need cut out. Many beekeepers do not provide this service due to the difficulty and expertise needed. Look for hive removal or cutout in the search results for beekeepers who will.

Don’t expect a beekeeper to remove a swarm for free. A few will depending on location, but free bees often costs more time and gas than purchasing bees. Hive removal and cutouts are rarely free due to the time, expense and liability involved.
