Over the next few months new queens will take a proportion of a Honey Bee hive population to create new hives or inhabit existing empty hives. When this happens Honey Bee swarms will often rest in large masses en-route to a new hive. It is important that we all do our bit to help Honey Bees reach these destinations so that they can continue to pollenate and play their vital role in nature.
Of course, sometimes the final destination of a Honey Bee swarm may be a dangerous place for us to co-exist. Provided we follow the ‘Feral Honey Bee code of practice’ pest control measures can be taken to deal with this type of problem. However, in most situations simple measures that we can undertake can prevent a treatment being necessary.
Please be aware the we will not treat Honey Bees unless every effort has been made to prevent a treatment being necessary and a qualified Bee-Keeper can confirm that there is no other option.
The British Bee Keepers Association http://www.bbka.org.uk/ have information about Feral Honey Bee Swarms, how to identify a swarm and a list of on duty Swarm Wardens who will come to collect the swarm if you see one or if a Swarm lands at your premises. It is always worth checking with a swarm warden before contacting us as many will go to extraordinary lengths to salvage a Honey Bee Swarm.
REMEMBER – BEES ARE NOT PESTS!
Eradication should be considered a last resort.
