Help Save Our Local Honeybees! Bee Swarm Removal (free)
The bees that are removed are not killed. After an established colony is removed (from walls, roofs, trees, etc.), it is adopted out to a beginner beekeeper who is a member of the San Mateo County Bee Guild to or another community resident who will care for that colony.
