We aim to assist you in your quest for information. If you can't find what you are looking for contact us but please remember our speciality is the honey bee. For information on other insects and bees the organisations listed on the Do You Have a Swarm page are better placed to help you.
The BBKA is a small charity with limited resources and it relies on a dedicated team of volunteers to collect swarms in public areas. In the office we have just four members of staff, and receive up to 300 phone calls a day asking about swarms. Around 75% of these are about insects other than honey bees, so please go to our Do You Have a Swarm page to check whether the insects you need advice on are actually honey bees.
Please do not call our beekeepers about bumblebees or any insect other than the honey bee. They are unable to help you with these and will not collect/remove them.
