Report a Swarm

Swarming is the process by which honey bee colonies reproduce to form new colonies. When a honey bee colony outgrows its home, becomes too congested, or too populated for the queen's pheromones to control the entire workforce, then the workers signal that it is time to swarm.

Swarming bees are not usually aggressive. They're looking for a new home. A responsible beekeeper will try to save the hive whenever possible and relocate it. So contact a beekeeper, not an exterminator!

If you see a swarm, please contact us (below).

While swarms are not dangerous, we recommend you keep your distance and allow a beekeeper to trap the hive if possible.
