Which of these do you have:
If you have the 1st or 2nd then a beekeeper can not help, but please be aware wasps eat a lot of garden bugs so are of benefit and bumble bees are infrequently an issue and only last about 6 weeks as a noticeable nest. All of these pollinate plants and are a necessary part of our environment.
Removing a swarm of honey bees
Swarming is the way honey bees make new colonies. Half the colony leaves and rests temporarily whilst searching for a new place to live. A swarm will ignore you unless they feel you are threatening them, however a hanging swarm should be removed by a beekeeper as, when it does move on, it may well end up in a chimney or other unsuitable location. Removal of nests of bees from these locations is significantly more difficult (& expensive) and requires professional intervention.
Beekeepers charge for swarm removal in order to cover for the various expenses incurred in re-locating a swarm.
There is a BBKA swarm map which registers swarm collectors – we advise using the postcode search to locate those near you
Each division handles calls also.
