Swarm Capture 

Recover and Rescue exterior swarms that may land outside on your property possibly creating a public hazard. Swarming is a natural instinct in honeybees during the spring and summer months during their reproductive cycle. We capture the swarm and relocate the colony to one of our local bee yards.


Interior Residential and Business Colony Cut-Out Eradication

When a swarmed colony takes up residency in the walls of your home or business we cut out the colony living in there, professionally removing the bees, brood and honey comb, eradicating the bees from your property. The bees are safely given a new home in a hive box and relocated to one of our bee yards.
