So you have a bee problem? No problem!! I am a hobby beekeeper in the North Charleston, SC area that might be able to help you out. Bee removal services include:
1. Swarm Removal…this is usually a ball of bees from softball to melon size that is hanging on a tree, fence or in the bushes. This is usually an easy removal and if I am available I will perform this service for free.
2. Cut Out Removal…this is an established hive in the soffits or behind siding, under a deck or in an old grill. This requires the beekeeper to come with equipment and cut out the existing comb, remove the bees as well as all of the honey and brood. If not removed, what remains could attract insects, larger critters, and cause unsightly staining and gross smells.
3. Trap Out…usually an established hive in an unremovable tree or behind structures that cannot be compromised. This involves 3-4 trips over a few weeks as the bees are trapped out of their old hive and established into a new hive that is beside the old entrance.
*Both cutouts and trap outs are fee based services due to the hours needed to accomplish them properly.
*Please contact me by email and give as much info as possible. Include pictures if you can! I will do my best to respond within an hour of your initial contact.

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