ALL BEEKEEPERS PLEASE NOTE: Those volunteering to assist the general public in the capture of honey bee swarms are responsible for all activities related to any capture and collection, including any communications with the general public that may be involved. Three Rivers Beekeepers (TRB) assumes no responsibility related to the capture and collection activity.

Do You Need a Swarm Removed?

Please click on the link below to see and print a list of our volunteers. Never spray a swarm with insecticide or water.  Help us to protect our honey bees and pollinators.
