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

Speak to me about bee removal live via video link

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 on this list

I capture swarms when they can safely be reached with a step ladder but am not equipped to remove established colonies that have taken up permanent residence in a building or a tree. I am a beekeeper hobbyist and rehome the bees in my own hives or with a fellow beekeeper in the area. I only capture swarms February – June.

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