Do you have a problem with a swarm of bees?

Please read the following.

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 a swarm of bees in the Wantage area, your first point of contact is the Vale and Downland Beekeepers Association.

3. For elsewhere in the UK try the BBKA.
