Middlesex County Honey Bee Swarm Pick Ups

Have a bee swarm? You can help save them! Honey bee numbers have been in decline for years, and the reasons are varied – but they include Parasitic Mites, Pesticides, and Loss of Suitable Habitat and Forage. By most accounts, 70% of all U.S. commercial crops, such as many fruits, vegetables, nuts, blueberries, cranberries, et cetera, depend upon pollination by Honey Bees. Concientiously dealing with swarms is one method of helping prevent further Honey Bee Decline. In Middlesex County, our beekeepers will come to you to pick up a swarm! Text or call the Middlesex County Beekeepers Association Swarm Coordinator at 781-630-1129 to discuss your options.
