making contact about swarms
Please read the swarms page and then bumblebees and wasps page before making contact
If you have identified that it is a swarm of Honeybees, and are concerned, please visit the British Beekeepers Association website (details below) they will have details of Swarm collectors in your area
Although this is a voluntary service, please note there are expenses incurred; for example: petrol, providing the bees with frames of wax and medication etc. Expect a fee in the region of £30-£40
Many beekeepers work full time doing other jobs. It may not be possible for them to come straight away, you may be asked to leave your name and number on voice-mail.
Please, do not call ‘999’ unless you believe people are in extreme danger (very, very unlikely).
Visit the British Beekeepers Association website for details of Swarm collectors in your area.
