Honey Bee Swarm Removal Services
Hudson Hives offers FREE honey bee swarm removal.
Please note we do not remove anything other than honey bees. If you suspect you have a wasp or hornet nest please contact a local exterminator. Wasp and hornet nests tend to be paper looking type hives. View the images to see the difference.
The bees have left their current home in search of a new one. Honey Bee swarms are protecting the queen who is in the center. Swarms can be found just about anywhere such as on fences, in trees or bushes. The best thing to do is leave them alone as they will find a new home, or call a beekeeper who will relocate the bees to a new home.
Because we are losing honeybees in record numbers please do not kill them. We need to save the honey bee. Visit our page on "save the bees" to learn more about the issues with honey bees.
Hudson Hives will relocate the bees to a new Hudson Hives Bee Hive. Our service is FREE but we cannot remove bees that have entered into structures such as behind siding etc..
