Swarm Collection Service

swarmABKA offers a honeybee swarm collection service to the public. This is usually free of charge and the bees will be removed and rehived.  If you think you have a swarm please leave it alone.  Swarmed honeybees are usually docile (their stomachs are full of honey) but provoking them is not a good idea.  Please also ensure what you have is a swarm of honeybees and not a wasps nest. To check, take a look at our
Wasps, bees and bumble bee leaflet.  You can also find further information about swarms on the BBKA ‘Do you have a honeybee swarm?’ page.
