The Bluegrass Beekeepers Association has many beekeepers who are willing to collect a swarm of honey bees. We have had calls lately for beekeepers who are experienced in removing bees from a building or structure. If you have experience in this area, please email your contact information to president@bluegrassbeekeepers.com.
