Swarm Identification

If you find a swarm – firstly, don’t panic! The likelihood of being stung is very small. Secondly, contact one of the volunteer swarm collectors in your area via the links to your local Branch or the BBKA Website – Swarm Collectors

The swarm collector is likely to ask you to take photographs of the swarm or the bees causing concern. These should be sent to the swarm collector (e.g. via email) so that they can visualise the situation. Possible solutions can then be discussed and a visit arranged if necessary.
