To arrange for a swarm to be collected, check out our swarm collection map!

If you see what looks like a huge cloud of bees, making a loud buzzing noise, that is a swarm. It is quite natural and swarming bees are usually harmless - but keep pets and children indoors just in case.

The swarm will eventually come to rest as a large ball of bees on a tree, bush or wall. It may go into a hole in a wall or a hollow tree.

Local Beekeepers want to know about swarms, as they collect them to make new hives. Use the below map to find a local beekeeper who can collect the swarm.
