Bee swarm removal. My two teenage sons and I remove bee swarms for free. We are located in the Davis area but will go to Sacramento, Elk Grove, Fair Oaks, Woodland, Winters, Dixon, Vacaville. Generally within 30 -40 miles. We DO ACCEPT donations for gas or if you are just really pleased with the job we do. However, payment is not required to have us remove your swarm.
Swarms are considered bees that are resting in trees, shrubs, or on the side of buildings etc. Once they move into a building or a wall the are not a swarm. They are a permanent colony. If you need bees removed from inside a building wall, we will take a look at it and give you a price. They are a lot more difficult to remove and we do charge for that service. We also do not repair anything that needs to be removed or opened up on a building to remove the bees.
The best time to call me is when you first see the bee swarm. Early in the day the swarm will swirl around in a large cloud. It is really loud and very intimidating. However, generally they are very docile when in a swarm. They are looking for a new place to live and are not protecting their colony. Later in the day they will usually start to cluster on a branch or tree limb or on the side of a building. The queen is in the center of this small cluster (usually the size of a basketball or football). That is the time for us to come and remove the swarm.
We are not professional bee keepers. We do this for the love of bees. We keep several hives in an orchard in Davis. Please call us if you need bees removed. Thank you!
