Swarm Help

HONEY BEES ONLY - No hornets or yellow jackets!

Swarming is the process by which a new honey bee colony is formed when the queen bee leaves the colony with a large group of worker bees. In the prime swarm, about 60% of the worker bees leave the original hive location with the old queen. This swarm can contain thousands to tens of thousands of bees.

If you have a swarm of bees in your yard and wish to have someone help you get it, call one of us.  

Catching swarms requires quick action. 

If you fail to get an answer to your call it’s best not to leave a message but rather go on to another person on the list.

If you have trouble reaching anybody in the list below, please call Brad York at (719) 896-0000.
