Capture a Swarm
You've found a swarm of bees on your property - what do you do now? Below is a list of beekeepers in and around Chowan County who are equipped to capture swarms and find them a home. Here are some questions the beekeeper may ask.
🐝Are you sure they are honeybees? (If you can, take a photo to text to the beekeeper to confirm.)
🐝Are you sure it is still there? (Swarms can pause for a just a few minutes to rest or may stay a day or more.)
🐝How high up off the ground is the swarm located? (be accurate)
🐝If they are on a structure (e.g., piece of farm equipment), what type of structure, and are they reachable?
