Swarmcatchers of the Holland Area Beekeepers Assn. (Updated May 2013)

Contact one of the beekeepers listed below if you have a swarm of bees in your trees, shrubs, buildings. USUALLY the beekeeper will remove the bees at no charge to you, but you need to check with the beekeeper BEFORE removal happens – some removals require special equipment and extra risk.

This list is arranged by counties and cities – check both lists. Note: If you don’t find the info you need here, call your local 911 dispatcher. Most have lists of beekeepers who will remove swarms.

Please – we don’t do wasps or ground bees!

    We just got into one of our hives and the queen is gone. At the meeting on the 18th, someone had queens and or nucs for sale I thought. I did not write down the names, does someone still have the contact info? Any other suggestions?

    I am correcting my phone number as posted on the website.

    It should be 616-868-7255.

    Probably by the July meeting I will have a few VSH mated queens.
