However, Most Work Like This Is Labor-intensive

This post is showing what’s called a cutout. You will not find someone to do this for free. It’s a lot of work and takes skill and some specialized tools and most likely an assistant. An amateur beekeeper will not be able to pull this off. Generally, if you do find an amateur beekeeper to pick up a swarm for free it’s because it’s a swarm or ball of bees resting on a branch of a tree or car ender. You might be able to find someone who will shake them into a hive for free. However, most work like this is labor-intensive. Bees have value but there is an expense associated with the gear that they live in. You can spend $100 – $200 per hive for all the boxes, frames, bottom board, top board and maybe a feeder frame. So you can’t really expect someone to spend an entire day tearing down a wall and pulling out bees and installing them inexpensive gear just for the honor of hauling your bees away. The bees are a kicker for the beekeeper but they don’t have enough monetary value to compensate for this amount of work. Also, you have no idea if these bees are Africanized which would mean that this is extermination which honestly is a huge hassle and you will get stung up even wearing the protective gear.

I’m glad people want to save bees now and know about trying to find amateur beekeepers who might be able to help but most of the time you’ll need a pro to get it done and it’s a lot of work. You’re asking someone to demo a portion of your home and remove thousands of stinging insects and a bunch of sticky stuff while wearing bulky and uncomfortable clothing.
