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

My services include swarm removal, trapping bees, and cutouts. Swarms are usually free but gas money is appreciated. I will usually go within 40 miles of Murfreesboro, TN. Further with agreeable charge. Trapping bees is usually from trees, cutting down trees to remove hives and sometimes from buildings but the hives must be no more than 3 or 4 feet from the ground. Trapping bees can take up to 8 – 12 weeks and is time consuming for me to check the trapping(s). Cutting down trees to remove bees is something I do but cost is dependent on difficulty of the job. If I feel the removal of the tree is beyond my expertise, you can get an expert to cut the tree down and I will remove the bees. I do not remove the wood but for an additional fee I can limb up the tree. Cutouts are offered for homes and other buildings. Price is determined upon complexity of the job, including height and location. I normally charge a fee to come and look at cutout jobs with part of this fee being returned in the cost of doing the work. I am not responsible for any repairs. I am experienced in cutout including bees in a dormer (roof). I use equipment to lessen the killing of the bees and I take all bees home and hive them. Please fell free to contact me with any questions you have about bees!!!!

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

Speak to me about bee removal live via video link
