Swarm Catching

Loudoun Beekeeping Company catches bee swarms for free!
If you live in Loudoun County, VA and have a bee swarm on your property, you can call us. We will come out, catch the swarm if possible, and relocate the bees.
We do not remove other insects like hornets' or yellowjackets' nests though. We also do not remove established colonies inside of walls, trees, or buildings.

For bee swarm removal call:  301-219-3131
This is how a bee swarm in a tree can look like.

Classes:

God's Glory Farm offers classes on different topics for schools and other groups. We will either come to you, or you can visit us on the farm. We offer hands-on demonstrations of the topic you choose. In several classes we will use live animals for our lessons. If you wish, we will incorporate our Christian worldview in our classes.
The content of each class will be taught age appropriate by a former science teacher. Any of the classes can be taught in German as well.
 
Currently we offer the following classes:

Depending on group size and desired time frame you may even be able to try on a beesuit and a veil and light a real beekeeper's smoker.
