We can remove honey bee swarms for free; from a tree, brush, ground, etc. If you found an established hive in a building or structure, it will require a cutout. We can help you try and find a member willing to remove it, usually for free as well.
Wasps are important pollinators, too, though yellow-jacket wasps (shown above) are not (though may still play an important role in the garden). If you have a wasp colony that must be removed, you will need to call an exterminator.*
*Washington State is collecting Eastern Yellow Jackets for venom Immunotherapy. Contact https://www.rvayellowjacket.com/ for removal and turn those pests into medical supply.
