Looking for Honey Bee Removal or Extraction?

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help remove bees from my property?

CBA does not offer bee removal. If you believe you're dealing with honey bees, and would like help having them extracted from your property, please click on this link and search the list for a registered beekeeper near you.

Am I dealing with honey bees or wasps?

We frequently receive calls from people saying they are having trouble with honeybee hives, when what they really have are yellow jacket or hornet nests. CLICK HERE to learn the difference between honey bees, wasps/hornets and bumble bees.

Can you deal with my bee swarm?

CBA gets many calls, especially during early Spring from folks wanting help with swarms. Learn more about swarms and common bee problems HERE.
