Not all swarms can be humanely removed and relocated. For example a swarm which has been lodged in a chimney for a number of seasons and has been allowed to grow may be difficult if not impossible to remove. It is always advisable to remove swarms as early as possible before they have had an opportunity to settle and become protective of their comfortable home.

Please note that bee removals areĀ Carpenter bee trap generally done in the evening especially with settled (as opposed to migratory) swarms. During the day a third of the bees are out foraging so it does not make sense to try and remove them during the day.

Also it is potentially dangerous to do so as swarms are very protective and may become aggressive. Bee Removers who remove swarms during the day, other than migratory swarms, are generally acting without regard to the bees' interests and more than likely will destroy the hive as the bees will not be able to resettle and their infrastructure as a working family may be irretrievably disrupted.
