Bee and Swarm Removal

Regarding swarms or active hives, given their time-sensitive nature, we recommend utilizing a local beekeeping Facebook group. We also HIGHLY recommend you include a picture as this is the best way to identify swarms and ease of removal/catch.

This is the best way to get help in a timely manner as we don't check the BCBA inbox regularly enough to respond to swarms.

Beekeepers work with European Honey Bees (sp. Apis Mellifera) in their apiaries.  

To request swarm removal, you must be able to tell them apart from other species. 

Please read the info below to learn what a Honey Bee looks like. 

BCBA does not provide swarm removal services. We can do our best to help you identify. Please send a photo to us.  We will be happy to help identify your discovery!

Did you know there are more than 300 species of bees in Pennsylvania? 

Yellow Jackets, wasps and hornets are mistaken for bees more often than not!
