Found a Swarm?

The swarming season is from April to July but the peak is from early May to mid June. Swarms are not dangerous unless disturbed or aggravated (for example if sprayed with water). Before leaving their parent hive, they gorge on honey, so generally speaking they are in a semi-docile state.

Why Swarm?
Swarming is the natural way honeybees increase their population. Each swarm contains a queen bee and tens of thousands of worker bees who leave their original colony in search of a new home, often resting for a short while on a tree branch, wall or other convenient spot before moving on to to their chosen nest site.

Our Swarm Collectors
We offer a honeybee swarm collection service to members of the general public free of charge.
Please call us FREE on 08000 99 6268 and provide a description of the bees you want to be collected, where they are and how long they have been there. As it can be difficult to identify the right bee, please send us a picture or video to avoid a wasted trip.
Please note that swarms are collected at the swarm collectors own cost and so any donation would be appreciated.

Only Honeybees Please!
There are many varieties of bees but we are only able to collect honeybees.
We do not collect:

  • Wasp nests
  • Bumblebee nests
  • Solitary bee colonies
  • Hornet nests
  • Honeybees nesting in inaccessible locations, roof cavities, chimneys, wall cavities etc.

Pest Controllers

There may be occasions that you need to remove the insects but they are not honeybees or they are in accessible and inappropriate places. In this case we recommend you contact a local pest control company. We are unable to specifically recommend companies.
