There are over 250 types of bees in the UK but there is only one european honey bee (apis mellifera).
It is important that, if possible, you can identify the bees to ensure they are not harmless bumble bees or other varieties. Please go to this page to identify the bees.
Please note our members are unpaid volunteers who can only help with honey bees.
This is our list of Swarm Collectors. Please find the one closest to you to contact:
If you feel you need to have the bees destroyed please contact a local pest controller. Bees are endangered but they are not protected.
