Report a swarm of bees

Last updated August 28, 2023

Has a colony or cluster of bees moved in near your home? Do you want to report their presence and have them taken away? The Polliflora Cooperative offers this service in partnership with the city.

Deadline has passed

Polliflora can safely recover and relocate the bees so they can continue to help plants and fruit trees to reproduce.


Each year, a number of bee groups, known as swarms, are reported by residents. This natural phenomenon occurs when the queen and part of the bees leave the hive to form a new colony.

Although the cloud of bees may be intimidating, most bee swarms are harmless.
