Bee swarms are often adopted by local beekeepers, provided they are able to safely retrieve them. Swarms high in trees or inside structures may not be retrievable.

Your local beekeepers' group keeps a list of folks who will come pick up swarms:

Reach out to some of them to share where your bees are located, and see if someone is able to pick them up. Good luck!
