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 listed below 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.

Up and down the country many swarm reports have turned out to be nests of tree bumblebees. For more information about tree bumblebees please go to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust website.

You can find a local swarm collector by either viewing the following website or contacting the local swarm co-ordinator, Les Tonkin 07977 545495.
