Information about getting help with swarms from CCBA members
SWARMS ARE USUALLY VERY DOCILE – WITHOUT A QUEEN AND A HIVE , THEY HAVE NOTHING TO PROTECT.
If you find a swarm of honeybees on your turf and don’t want it there, members of CCBA are willing to remove the swarm. Time is of the essence. Once the swarm has entered its new home, removal of the honeybees is much more difficult and may involve opening the wall of a house to get to the bee colony. This is generally beyond the capability of most beekeepers, so contact one of them while the bees are still clustered in a swarm. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us. It is helpful to have a photo of the bees you are seeing, but not necessary.
The following beekeepers want to capture swarms of honeybees:
SOUTHERN and WESTERN CHESTER COUNTY
NORTHERN and CENTRAL CHESTER COUNTY
MAIN LINE and DELAWARE COUNTY
HONEY BEES REMOVED FROM BUILDINGS
REMOVAL OF WASPS, HORNETS, AND BUMBLE BEES FROM HOUSE WALLS
