Rocky Mountain Bee will remove swarms free-of-charge. We never use spray or powdered poison! Hive removal is estimated on a case-by-case basis as there are usually structural considerations to under-take during a hive removal. If you are unsure of whether you have a hive or swarm please contact us directly using our contact page, TheBeeGuru@gmail.com, or text/call (720) 934-6176 for immediate response situations.
In all hives and swarm removals, the bees are removed alive and relocated to a good home! If you would like to keep the bees yourself, let Gregg know and he will assist in getting a hive setup for you.
Swarm vs. Hive
Q. What are the differences between a swarm and an established hive?
A. A swarm is a football sized grouping of bees as they are gathering around a queen. Usually found in trees, or possibly on the soffit of a building. A hive is an established colony where honeycombs have already been built and is either inside a tree or inside the walls of a house.
