Honeybee Swarm Removal
In the spring, overwintered hives are exploding with new bees and the natural tendency is for the hive to split and swarm. It’s kind of like a house with too many people in it – some have to move out to make room for others. When bees swarm, there is no nest, just a whole bunch of bees clinging to each other, usually in a low hanging tree.
If you see a swarm, DON’T PANIC. Please call us at 763-202-7235 and we will ask you questions to make sure that your swarm is really honey bees. We will usually have you text or email us a photo to make sure that they are honeybees. If they are honey bees will come out and remove them from your property.
If left alone, most swarms will move on in a matter of hours. While the swarm is resting scout bees will be coming and going from it looking for a good location for a more permanent home. Honey bees in a swarm usually are not aggressive, but don’t challenge their personal space or spray them with water or bug sprays.
