Swarm List

Think you have a honeybee swarm? Many of our calls are about native bees, yellow jackets, or hornets. If you aren’t sure, you can check here before getting in touch: Identifying a Swarm

The club maintains a list of member beekeepers that will collect honeybee swarms FREE of CHARGE in King County, including the communities of North Bend, Issaquah, Snoqualmie, Fall City, Carnation, Duvall, and the greater Eastside.

Some members will also do cut-outs (removal of established bee hives from structures) and trap-outs (removals where the hive is not accessible). Cut-outs and trap-outs are labor-intensive and usually incur some kind of fee.

To be placed on the swarm list you must be a current SVB member. Please come to the meeting and sign up at the membership table.
