Bee Rescue Hotline: 917-740-4BEE

April to June is typically "swarm season," when bee colonies naturally reproduce. Though we teach how to minimize swarming, there are no guarantees, and they may need to be collected. A swarm left undisturbed is typically calm as it awaits scouts bringing information about possible new homes.

If you see a swarm that needs a home - we may be able to help. Please call 917-740-4BEE (4233), tell us when & where, and leave contact info for followup. Please be as specific as you can & if possible send a photo to A beekeeper will survey the situation and call in support if needed.




Come, learn, enjoy!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
