Do You Have a Swarm?

Beekeepers are often approached about winged, flying creatures, especially in the spring and summer period, when these generate a lot of activity.

If you think you have a swarm, please have a look at the following link before calling on a beekeeper.

Most beekeepers will collect a swarm either free of charge or for a small fee to cover the fuel costs.

Below is a list of member's willing to collect swarms on a volunteer basis, if a beekeeper can't collected they will try and contact others that may be able to help.
