Swarms

In summer we receive many calls and enquiries from members of the public regarding bees in their houses, outbuildings and gardens but our volunteer members are only able to help in cases of swarms of honey bees.

Honey

The BBKA encourages people to buy local honey.  Contact your local BBKA association for details of their members who are selling honey or, alternatively, visit local farmers’ markets, shops and delis.

Wasps

Wasps and honey bees usually co-exist perfectly happily. It is only in late summer that problems can arise.
