Swarms

cropped-IMG_0091-Custom.jpgI think I have a swarm. What should I do?

First of all make sure that they are honey bees and not wasps or bumble bees using this link to the Scottish Beekeepers Association https://www.scottishbeekeepers.org.uk/advice/swarms.

Once you have identified them and believe that they are honey bees, please contact Daniel McGarva who will be able to put you in touch with one of our members. They will then assess the situation and decide if they are able to collect the bees safely. Sometimes colonies of bees can be in roofs, chimneys or other difficult to reach places and are not possible to remove. If this is the case and they are a danger to you or your neighbors then you may need to call in a local pest controller.
