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

    I found a wild hive on the face of a cliff while hunting. The combs were maybe 2-3 feet in length with 5 or 6 of them arrayed vertically together, looked a bit like “fins”. I could tell it was a wax comb and not paper, although I did see some hornets flying around it. Is it possible to “harvest any honey from one of these, or should it just be left alone? I’m just curious as it would take climbing gear to reach it.
