Ohio Swarm Removal

↓ Scroll down for beekeeper list ↓

Scroll down for a list of Ohio beekeepers who remove swarms and established bee colonies. 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.

Please use caution when engaging anyone from this list
Bees-on-the-Net is unable to take responsibility for their services.

To find a beekeeping group or club in Ohio, go to the Bee Clubs and Associations Page and select Ohio from the map, or see the Ohio 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 Ohio honey. Although Ohio 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.
