Swarm Collection

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 and to find a nearby swarm collector who may be able to help you.

Please note our members are volunteers who can only help with honey bees.

If you feel you need to have the bees destroyed please contact a local pest controller.  Bees are endangered but they are not protected.
