Bee Swarm & Colony Removal Referral Service

Swarm and colony removal referrals are done as a service to the community. This can range from capturing a swarm hanging from a tree branch to cutting into a structure to remove a colony. We will be able to help you find an individual beekeeper to help.

The San Francisco Beekeepers Association provides swarm and honeybee removal referral as a service to the public. We are neither an oversight or a certification organization for beekeepers. If you engage the services of anyone on the list, please be aware that you are engaging the services of that beekeeper as an individual, not hiring them as an agent of the San Francisco Beekeepers Association. Problems are rare, but if one occurs, it is a matter between you and the individual that you engaged to handle your bee situation. We welcome feedback but can’t mediate your situation.
