Honeybee swarm removal


Honeybees are small and vary in colour from golden brown to almost black.

You can find the swarm collector nearest to your postcode via this link: www.bbka.org.uk/swarm

Please try and have the following information to hand when you call, it will make the situation much easier to assess.

  • Location of the swarm (i.e. in a tree, on a fence, side of house, etc…).
  • Approximate distance from the swarm to the ground.
  • Size of the swarm (i.e. a tennis ball, football, bulging shopping bag, etc…).
  • The time and day when you first noticed the swarm and an estimate of the time it has been there.
  • The address of the swarm. If it is not on your property, please provide the contact information of the owner, if possible.
  • A telephone number for a contact person, if subsequent calls are appropriate.

I don’t think they are honeybees, what should I do?
