Swarm Removal List

If you live on the Peninsula, in San Francisco, or in Northern Santa Clara County, call one of the beekeepers on the swarm list below, and they will come out and retrieve the swarm. Please ask if the beekeeper will charge you — most of our beekeepers remove swarms for free, but some do charge.

Unsure whom to call? Contact our swarm coordinator by phone (650-250-4787) or email. Please include your phone number in the message.

Please note: our beekeepers are not pest control professionals. They are experienced with honey bees and can rescue them unless the bees are too high, in a wall, etc. We remove honeybees only. We are not able to work with wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, carpenter bees or bumblebees.
