Swarms

If you need a swarm of bees removed, contact one of our members below. Although this is a voluntary service, our beekeepers do incur costs and so a modest charge may be made depending on circumstances. Any charges will be confirmed before  the beekeeper visits.

Before contacting our Swarm Collectors, make sure that you really DO have a swarm of honey bees and NOT bumble bees.    If you are unsure, look at the images in the slideshow on the right.  Alternatively, have a look at the British Beekeepers’ Association’s step-by-step guide to recognising honey bees.   Also, you can always phone for advice – we are there to help you.

If the swarm is very high up or inside a chimney, loft or cavity wall, our swarm collectors may not be able to help you.  However, you can contact Sam Pilgrim who is a bee-friendly pest controller.  He will take the bees away and re-hive them but he does charge as this is how he makes his living.  His mobile number is: 07795182110.
