Report a Swarm

It is very important to capture/rescue honey bee swarms in our area so that they are not lost to parasites, disease, or exterminators. The members of the Utah County Beekeepers Association have put together the following lists of available beekeepers who will remove swarms at no charge. Please select your city/area below on the interactive maps to locate a beekeeper near you. If there is not a beekeeper listed, look at surrounding cities/areas. Be prepared to answer the questions below to help the beekeeper.

 

 

 

Here are some images of the kinds of "bees" that beekeepers do not remove:


When a honey bee swarm can not find an appropriate enclosed cavity, be it in a tree or in the walls of your house, they build their comb outside exposed to the elements.  This is rare, and if it happens where there is winter, they will not survive.  A wasp nest (upper left) is a half round umbrella shape.  Honey bee comb is comprised of parallel paddles, of which six can be seen in the tree.  Eight can be seen in the hive box.

Information

A note on Bumblebees (Bombus spp.).  Bumblebees dwarf their honey bee cousins (pictures not to scale). These bees are not aggressive and will not disturb you unless you are bothering their nest or blocking the entrance to it. Some beekeepers may remove bumblebee nests to protect their declining populations.
