To find a beekeeping group or club in Alaska, go to the Bee Clubs and Associations Page and select Alaska from the map, or see the Alaska Bee Club and Association Page.

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 Alaska honey. Although Alaska 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 Alaska beekeepers near you, try looking on pages for neighboring states, or check Alaska beekeeping groups or clubs. You could also try contacting the Alaska department of agriculture. If all else fails you could try contacting Alaska pest control companies or Alaska exterminators.

      Hi Karen

      I suggest you wait until spring before actually getting some bees. In the meantime read some books, join a bee club in your area or contact local beekeepers about obtaining a swarm. If you decide to order a package of bees you should order it asap for delivery in about April. If you don’t order a package soon you may find the supplier sells out.

      Good luck.

      Geoff
