Bee swarm management and swarm removal activities require a unique beekeeper skill set. In some cases, a beekeeper may not have the knowledge, equipment, or competency to remove or capture bee swarms. Oregon State Beekeepers Association can provide access to local beekeepers and regional beekeeper organizations that can assist in swarm removal or capture. These local beekeepers and regional beekeeper organizations with individual beekeepers have volunteered to be available for bee swarm removal and/or capture. However, OSBA and these organizations do not a) provide assurances as to any particular beekeeper’s ability to successfully remove and/or capture a bee swarm, and b) have any knowledge as to whether a particular beekeeper has a local contractor’s license, bonding capability, or liability insurance relative to their swarm removal activities. Should exterior or interior structural work be required on any building or residence to provide access for swarm removal, a property owner is advised to seek a professional contractor with the appropriate licensing and liability insurance to undertake such a project.
