The most important rule is: Don’t panic!
Bees reproduce by swarming. It is one of nature’s wonderful sights, but it can be a bit alarming as thousands of bees are flying and congregating.
If you think you have a swarm of bees, our advice is to keep your distance and check on these pages to make sure they are Honey Bees: see our Identification page
You will also find more information on the British Beekeepers website at: http://www.bbka.org.uk/help/do_you_have_a_swarm.php
If you do have a swarm of Honey Bees, we can arrange for them to be collected for you. Please call one of the contact numbers shown at the bottom of this page.
If you have a bumblebee nest, we do not collect or move these. These are best left alone until winter when the nest will die out naturally.
We also don’t collect or deal with wasps nests – you will need to find a local pest controller if wasps are causing you a problem.
