Here’s a list of beekeepers who conduct swarm removal in Michigan. 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.

Help save the honeybees I will come and remove any bee swarms that are outside on objects that are 10 feet off the ground. After 10 feet I will charge $5 per foot higher that the bees are over 10 feet. I will not take your bees if you have already sprayed them. I will come and give your bees a good home but first will you absolutely be positive that they are honeybees and not hornets or wasp. To look at the difference please go to my website and view the pictures and look at the differences.
I will remove your honeybee swarms for free!!
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 Michigan honey. Although Michigan 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 Michigan beekeepers near you, try looking on pages for neighboring states, or check Michigan beekeeping groups or clubs. You could also try contacting the Michigan department of agriculture. If all else fails you could try contacting Michigan pest control companies or Michigan exterminators.
