Here’s a list of beekeepers who conduct swarm removal in Pennsylvania. These are the people to call if you think you have a problem. They should be able to tell you whether you really have a problem, and what the options are.
Not all people will offer the same types of services, be prepared to pay for their work, these are specialized procedures requiring a great deal of skill and experience.
Bees-on-the-Net is not responsible for these services.

Hello, As you may know, the honeybee is at a critical junction and dying off at an alarming rate. Without the honeybee, food production will slow to dangerous levels. Just wanted to take a second to introduce our services and myself as a local Beekeeper. We at Huckle Bee Farms, will professionally and safely remove accessible “honey bees” and swarms from exterior objects such as tree’s (with wood removal), signs or posts of any source, homes or any building (removal of walls may be required), and or etc., just call us. The removal maybe FREE of charge depending on the services needed. Our goal is to help the homeowner and save the honeybees. Please remember that if you have bees inside a building or structure of any sort, there maybe repair work needed when finished. It is important to remove all honey, as this will attract rodents. With any service please call so we can discuss the situation in further detail. My work schedule is flexible and removal equipment is always close at hand. If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call on my cell phone or email me.

Try to give the beekeeper as much information as you can about the location of the swarm, height above the ground, length of time they have been there and whether there are any special circumstances you think might be relevant.
People are often concerned that bee swarms they see may be Africanized bees, the so called killer bees. When bees swarm it’s very difficult to tell their origin, even Africanized bees are usually docile when they are swarming, be cautious and call an expert.
Many people believe that local honey is beneficial for allergies. While I’m not sure there is any clinical proof of this, I can see there might some sort of homeopathic effect.
Finding true local honey, which incidentally is delicious, can sometimes be difficult but contacting people on this list might be a good place to start if you’re looking for pure Pennsylvania honey. Although Pennsylvania bees are basically the same as bees in any other states, the honey they make will be determined by the local plants. The flavor of the honey is usually a combination of nectar from many different plants
Please tell the beekeeper when you call, that you found them on the Bees-on-the-Net Swarm List.
To be added to the swarm removal page for your state please go here and complete the form.
If there appear to be no Pennsylvania beekeepers near you, try looking on pages for neighboring states, or check Pennsylvania beekeeping groups or clubs. You could also try contacting the Pennsylvania department of agriculture. If all else fails you could try contacting Pennsylvania pest control companies or Pennsylvania exterminators.
