DO YOU SEE BEES?  Call Us NOW!

Honey bees swarm in the early spring to late summer. If you see  a cluster of bees hanging on a tree or other object, that is a swarm and we have members who can come collect them and give them a nice home.

If you see bees going in and out of a hole or crack in a building, they have already moved in and we have members who can safely remove them and all of the comb so you won't have unwelcome neighbors.

Click here to make sure you see HONEY BEES and to learn more.

Contact Richard Dunnagan 919-606-3980, our Swarm and Cutout team leader.
