DO YOU HAVE A HONEY BEE SWARM?

BEFORE YOU PHONE A BEEKEEPER PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW

Beekeepers are often approached about winged, flying creatures, especially in the
spring and summer period, when they are their most active simply working and are no cause for alarm.

The link below will take you to the BBKA website to help you find out what kind of insect you have and therefore what to do about it. The most common insects are honeybees, bumblebees and wasps. There are other kinds of insects that are confused with these.  The BBKA website shows how to identify honeybees or a swarm of honeybees and provides information to help you know what to do.
