What should I do if I spot a swarm?

Beekeepers can remove swarms of honey bees and you can read more about how to identify swarms here.

The British Beekeepers Association describes honey bees as "small and vary in colour from golden brown to almost black".

If you think you are looking at honey bees, contact your local Swarm Collector who will provide appropriate help or advice.

You can read more information and find your local Swarm Collector here.
