What to do if you think you have a swarm of bees

Our beekeepers will only be able to help with Honey Bee swarms.

For more information on swarms and also determining whether you have honey bees, bumble bees or wasps, please go to the Scottish Beekeepers website here.

Swarms are useful to beekeepers who are usually willing to collect swarms if this is at all practical (we obviously need to be able to get at the swarm location).

If you have found a swarm, please contact Norrie Forster on 07888 692 393.

Note that whilst we can usually collect swarms, if you have an established colony of honeybees, removal is much more involved and we may not be able to help.

If you have Bumblebees, useful information can be found on the Bumblebee Conservation Trust website
