I have 30 years of carpentry experience and can do live bee removals (cut-outs) from walls, buildings,trees, or just about anywhere. My fees are reasonable and I can fix what I tear out if you need that to be done also. I will travel within a 35 mile radius from Bardstown (beyond that there is a $.75/mile charge) in order to help you rid yourself of bees. I will remove exposed or hanging swarms within a 15 mile radius free of charge, beyond that there will be a small fee to cover gas expenses. I do not kill bees with chemicals, these bees will be placed in managed hives in order to keep providing much needed pollination.

Bee removal and honey sales. We service Jackson, Madison, Clay, and surrounding counties. We offer bee removal, cost is based on needs, often there is no charge. If in a building we try to remove but if any material needs to be removed you are responsible for repair. We let you know what needs to be done before the job starts. We may need a day or two to get the gear together according to what is required. If bees are just clustered in a swarm we try to do it that evening. For question call cell phone 7am to 3pm home after that.

To find a beekeeping group or club in Kentucky, go to the Bee Clubs and Associations Page and select Kentucky from the map, or see the Kentucky 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 Kentucky honey. Although Kentucky 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 Kentucky beekeepers near you, try looking on pages for neighboring states, or check Kentucky beekeeping groups or clubs. You could also try contacting the Kentucky department of agriculture. If all else fails you could try contacting Kentucky pest control companies or Kentucky exterminators.

      Hi Jan I suggest you look on this page to see if there’s a beekeeper in your area who has honey for sale. Farmer’s market is another good source for local honey.
