Swarms

Dont Panic!

If a swarm of bees lands in your garden, and you would like the assistance of a beekeeper to either advise you, or to remove the swarm, then please contact one of our members as soon as the bees have settled (do not delay). If you are uncertain which insect you have in your garden or property, visit the BBKA website, which has a handy identification guide for bees, bumble bees and wasps.

You can visit the BBKA (British Beekeepers Association) website, find the ‘Swarms’ page, put in your postcode and you will be provided with a list of local beekeepers who act as ‘Swarm Collectors’.

If a swarm has taken up residence in a chimney or roof space then it is unlikely that the swarm can be removed without damage to the property and the services of a pest controller may be required.
