Honey Bee Swarms

Honey Bee Swarm Oregon

Honey Bee Swarm, Springfield Oregon

When honey bees swarm, about half of the active bees leave their hive with the queen. They fly a short distance and find a place to stage themselves and protect the queen while scout bees go out and look for a new home. While the bees are in their swarm state, they are usually fairly calm and not prone to sting since they don’t have a home they are trying to protect. Once they have settled into a bush, on a tree branch, or some other structure the honey bees will remain there for a few hours or occasionally overnight. This is the best time to collect the honey bees and place them into a new hive. It is the least stressful on the bees and it keeps them from building a new hive in the eve or wall of someone's home where they would have to be removed later.

Honey Bees

Honey bees could easily be considered humanity's favorite insect. We eat their honey, use the wax they make, and couldn’t sustain our current agricultural practices without them as our primary pollinators. What a lot of people don’t know is that Honey bees are not native to North America, they were brought over with early European settlers. At Plan Bees, we love them nonetheless which is why each spring we gear up for swarm season and head out to rescue the bees.

Brent was so nice and flexible and knowledgeable. He came out right away and came back multiple times to make sure all the bumblebees were re-homed. It was nice to be able to finish my yard work without being stung and to know that our friendly pollinators were not harmed.

Saw a swarm migrating across the field next to our house and then later discovered they had temporarily landed on a guard rail right out front. I called Brent, who arrived within the hour. Took care of the bees and was a delight to speak with. Thank you Brent!

Brent was so great from the initial contact on the phone to coming out and caring for the precious swarm of honey bees that were in our dogwood tree. Highly recommend for either safe removal of a swarm like we had or just a go-to guy for information. Thanks, Plan Bees!

Cannot recommend Brent from Plan Bees enough! He was out the door as soon as we called, educated the adults and young kids about how incredible and necessary bees are, and turned a stressful backyard situation into a pleasant one! He even let the kids try on the bee suit! Don’t hesitate to call... this experienced and friendly bee guy!read more
