Swarm Capture

Help Save The Honeybee                          

As part of our ongoing efforts to help save the Honeybee members of the CPBA are willing to go out and collect swarms of Honeybees when called by the
public / law enforcement / health agencies / pest control companies etc.  Please call us to remove swarms of Honeybees - do not exterminate them.

It is common for people to assume that all yellow and black stinging insects are bees and that all bees are the same.  Please be sure to correctly identify your pests as honey bees prior to calling.


This is what a honey bee swarm looks like.  This is what we collect when it is accessible. 







Still not 100% sure you have honey bees?  Follow the links below to identifying your pest.
