Are you experiencing a problem with a swarm of bees OR are there bees which you need to get rid of?  If so read more…

1. Not all bees are collectable.

The following swarms can’t be collected:-

  • swarms inside buildings, particularly if they need building work to gain access to them e.g. removing ceilings;
  • swarms which have congregated well above head height;
  • non-honeybee species;
  • swarms which are in dangerous places e.g. near an electricity sub-station or pylons.
2. For Wantage and the surrounding area, your first point of contact is the Vale and Downland Beekeepers Association.
3. For elsewhere in the UK try the BBKA.
