Swarms

Firstly, don’t panic.  If you are anxious about bees then just leave them alone and retreat to a safe place.  If you would like a beekeeper to remove them for you please confirm that they are honeybees by checking here first before contacting your nearest swarm collector.

There are many different types of bees and similar looking insects but we can only provide help if the bees you have found are honeybees and are accessible safely and easily.

We have over fifty beekeepers that are registered to collect swarms in Hertforfordshire. To find your nearest, enter your postcode at the British Beekeepers Association’s website:
