Dave Harrod – Beekdaddy LLC


I will catch swarms in either Mt Airy, Germantown, North Philadelphia, Wyndmoor, Wyncote, Elkins Park, Manayunk, Roxborough, Layfayett Hill, Flourtown, Glenside, Jenkintown. I don’t do cut outs. If we have an existing relationship I will consider helping you with wasps or hornets but usually I think they should be left alone, particularly if they’re not threatening anyone.

If you see a swarm text a picture of it and the address at 215-760-4162

My Story

I’ve been keeping bees in Philadelphia since 2006. I started because I saw an observation hive at my daughter’s school and became enchanted. The bee fever has only gotten worse since then. In 2022 I joined the great resignation and left my job as an analyst to keep bees full time. We’ll see what happens.

I was one of the founders of the Guild and I currently serve as the president of the board. I am trying to put the Guild on a professional footing and to make it possible and even profitable to be a beekeeper in Philadelphia. We’ll see how it goes.

My company is Beekdaddy LLC and I offer the following services.
