Search for a local beekeeper

Most beekeepers are only interested in capturing easy to access honeybee swarms, but some will help you with more difficult situations and other bee problems. Here are a few tips before calling a beekeeper about a bee problem.
  1. Check out my photos page so that you can identify the situation you have.
  2. Be prepared to email or text message at least two photos (one closeup and one distant photo) of the bees to the beekeeper. The closeup photo will help the beekeeper identify the type of bees you have, and the distant photo will help him/her get a better sense of the entire situation.
  3. Do not spray the bees, not even with water. Beekeepers are NOT interested in capturing honeybees that have been poisoned and are destined to perish, nor do they want to contaminate their equipment with any poisons. Spraying the bees with water will weaken the colony and can kill many bees. Beekeepers want strong healthy colonies with a live viable queen.
  4. A lot of beekeepers are hobbyists. Keeping bees doesn't exactly pay the bills. So if you call a number and the message on the answering system is an accounting firm, your first instinct would be to hang up, but you should leave a message. You might have called the beekeeper at his real place of employment, so please leave a message. Beekeepers love these calls, but hate to loose an opportunity to capture a swarm because someone was afraid they dialed the wrong number.
