Swarm Removal

Swarming is the process by which a new honey bee colony is formed when the queen bee leaves the colony with a large group of worker bees. In the prime swarm, about 60% of the worker bees leave the original hive location with the old queen. This swarm can contain thousands to tens of thousands of bees. (Wikipedia)

If you believe you may have a honeybee swarm, please call Rick Stephens at (260) 610-1040 and we will arrange for a local beekeeper to come remove the swarm.

Not sure if you have honeybees?  Here is some helpful information to determine if your bees are really wasps.

NEIBA Members:

The swarm list is a list of beekeepers who volunteer to go out and collect swarms during the season.  Catching swarms is a way to safely remove a swarm, protect the honey bees and increase the number of colonies you have.  


Rick Stephens is managing the swarm list. If you would like more information, would like to be added to the swarm list, or to update your information, contact  Rick Stephens at (260) 610-1040.
