Ontario Bee Rescue

Ontario Bee Rescue is dedicated to saving the honeybees and the humane removal and relocation of honey bee swarms and established honeybee colonies within Ontario Canada. A registered bee keeper will contact you for removal of swarms or honeybee colonies from homes, sheds, decks, and other man-made structures. We also collect swarms of honeybees from tree branches, fences, vehicles etc. The collected honeybees will then be relocated to an established licensed apiary where they are able to thrive as beneficial pollinators to the local environment.

Our Goals Are:
1.To provide a humane manner in which to remove honeybee hives from structures.
2. Relocate the rescued honeybees to more suitable locations.
3. To remain as a non-profit organization with no fees.

Swarm Facts

Swarming is an instinctive part of the annual life cycle of a honeybee colony. It provides a mechanism for the colony to reproduce itself. Bees in a swarm are generally docile and not inclined to sting or attack, and they will usually leave within a few days on their own for a more permanent location. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE BEES YOURSELF UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED BEEKEEPER!
