Swarms
Santa Clara Valley Beekeepers Guild

Our members would love to help you if you think you have a honey bee swarm or colony that has taken up residence. Don't panic, just give one of the following members a call. If you are unable to reach someone who normally handles your area, try someone that is close. We all would like to see the bees removed alive.

If you have comments about this service provided by Santa Clara Valley Beekeepers Guild, please call 408-634-2337

It is best to reach a live person. If you get an answering machine, leave a message, but continue on down the list.

Note: These members are not professionals in pest control. They are experienced in honey bees and can remove them alive unless the bees are too high, in a wall, etc. Each situation is different so take the time to call to see if the bees can be saved.

If you have bees in places that takes more than our members can provide -- in the walls, under the roof, and who knows where -- we suggest you contact:

Art Hall: 408-712-0663, website: The Bee Mobile

Mark Small: 408-857-1466, website Small Bees

Michael Stang: 408-621-6243
