    This is a honey bee swarm

    SWARM  is a large mass of bees all clinging together usually found on a branch or on the ground.  (See photo at right)  These are usually seen in the Spring.  Look below for names of local beekeepers that can help you with this.

    If you have bees that have established themselves in something, like a building structure, and you feel that either you or the bees are in danger, this may be the time for a  BEE RESCUE/REMOVAL (See photo at left)   Look below for names of local beekeepers that can help you with this.  Please make every effort to preserve our bee population.  At a time when so many things can be detrimental to the honey bee, it is important to grasp the chance to do our part, and help save the bees we can.
