Swarm Capture Contact List for Middle Tennessee

If you find a swarm of honeybees on your property and would like them removed,

PLEASE DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!

honeybee_swarmInstead, call one of the experienced beekeepers in the Wilson County Beekeepers Association. The women and men listed on our Swarm Capture List cover all communities in Wilson County and most of the surrounding counties too. They will carefully capture honeybees (without killing them) and remove them from your property, often at no expense to you. They want those honeybees. Please choose a beekeeper located close to the swarm as time is of the essence. Once they swarm to a tree or fence or some other structure, they will find a permanent home within hours and move in quickly so please don’t hesitate. Click here for the list:
