The following beekeepers are members of Metro Beekeeping Association and all are registered with the state meaning they are exempt from pest control laws, they also have a permit which is required to transport the removed bees which is required by the State of Texas.   Per law, no chemicals will be used to do removals.  Make sure you always use a beekeeper that is registered with the state and has the required bee transport permit. MBA Members wanting to be added to this list, see requirements — in addition to having required permit, you must be a current member, experienced with removals and approved.
    If you meet the requirements and would like to be added to the contact list please send your permit #, contact info, & removal information to Jessica Brown

Let the beekeeper know if the bees are in a building, structure or simply hanging from an object such as a tree. A photo is often helpful too.

I HAVE BEES – NOW WHAT?Removal
Don’t panic. A swarm of bees looking for a hive site looks impressive, but swarming bees very rarely sting unless you whack at them.

Removals called CUT OUTS
If you have an established hive in a wall, attic or crawl-space, DO NOT simply spray the bees with bug spray. That leaves all the honey (and dead bees) in place. The dead bees stink and the honey attracts more bees and huge amounts of ants.  The bees, honey, and hive will all need to be removed, and it’s not a job for amateurs. See the beekeepers listed below for ones that state they do cut outs.

Beekeeper will remove swarm or hive, cut-outs will be made only when required, and as carefully as possible.  Trap-outs are not my forte but I will steer you to a beekeeper who can do these. Estimates will require charge for mileage based on 50 cents per mile as computed by Yahoomaps.com, for round trip to your location.

Experienced beekeeper with over 10 years experience and over 400 live removals to my credit. I remove bees with minimal damage while educating people about honey bees. I do cut-outs and collect swarms. I also do excellent repairs and bee-proof many houses to prevent reinfestation. I service North Texas.
