St. Croix Valley Beekeepers Association Promoting the general interest and welfare of beekeeping
Swarm Removal Members     A swarm of honeybees is a familiar sight in the spring and summer. There is no telling where a swarm might land. It could land on any convenient resting place: a bush, a tree branch, a lamppost, or patio furniture. Honeybee swarms cluster together for protection and warmth in a temporary resting place. In the center of this ball is their queen. The swarming bees do not stay there long. As soon as scout bees find a nice suitable and protected home, the swarm will be up and away.  With the declining number of honeybees (and beekeepers), we want to help where we can. Below are telephone numbers and locations of members of the St. Croix Valley Beekeepers Association who will assist in honeybee swarm removal. We anticipate success in capturing these swarms to develop productive honey colonies which will continue to pollinate our environment  Our members will make every effort to remove and take the honeybee swarm with them upon their visit. They will not remove embedded or permanent dwelling structures where honeybees have set up a home. Unless this member has bee vacuum equipment and is able to make the possible removal. An online search for “honey bee swarms” can provide more information. Thank you for your interest in saving a honeybee swarm. Swarm Removal Members contact a member near you.
