Honey Bees swarm in order to reproduce and, if they decide to do so, thousands will leave their hive and fly off to find themselves a new home. Although a swarm looks scary, the bees are only intent on finding themselves somewhere else to live.

Our members may be able to collect a honeybee swarm and for more information to help identify honeybees and to find a local beekeeper please follow the link to the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA)
