Betterbee has accumulated swarm catcher information for its customers who may not know what to do with their unexpected visitors (honeybee swarms). We hope you will consider contacting one of these individuals who can make use of your wild swarm. The individuals on this list are beekeepers who have expressed an interest in gathering honeybee swarms and will not necessarily come to collect any other type of bee. If you would like to be added to this list or need to update your information please let us know via the Contact Us page. Please note you must be a customer of Betterbee in order to be added to this list for the free listing service we provide. 

The Southern Adirondack Beekeepers Association also offers a free online swarm form and phone number to call for help. The online page can be found from the SABA Website. The phone number is 518-387-9276 (518-38SWARM). The phone number is hosted by Google and when you leave a message, it will be transcribed to email and sent to many members. Someone will call back.
