*If you are a member of the community looking for assistance in removing a swarm from your home or business property, please visit this informational page first, then contact one of the following volunteers directly.

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. Each person appearing on this list agrees to relieve, hold harmless and indemnify TRB, its owners, officers and members for any actions or activities related to swarm collection and honey bee extraction, including but not limited to information used, liabilities, or resultant damages, injuries or bodily harm that might occur.

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.
Call or Email one of our beekeepers from the list. Usually there is no cost for easy to remove swarms. If the swarm is in a wall or in a tree, there may be a fee.
