Keith Hawkins, LSU AgCenter Area Horticulture Agent (AHA)
Bill is interested on being on the state list of beekeepers who catch swarms and remove unwanted hives from homes. He asked AHA for assistance on being l5isted for honeybee removal. The LSU AgCenter maintains a listing of beekeepers who are in the business of collecting bee colonies and placing them in hives.
If a homeowner discovers a honeybee infestation, a Google™ search with these words, “honeybee removal & swarm collection list”, will result in the AgCenter’s link at the top of the search listing. LSU AgCenter does not conduct bee swarm removals, rather the AgCenter simply maintains the list online. The contacts on the statewide list are provided as an informational service. The LSU AgCenter does not endorse, warrant, or recommend any person or business listed here. Fees of beekeepers depend on situation and travel distance.
The listing of bee removal specialists is organized by geography:
If you are a beekeeper interested in having your name added or removed from the above listing, please email the information to Kristen Healy at firstname.lastname@example.org .
