Do you have a swarm?

Beekeepers are often approached about honeybees, bumblebees and wasps, especially in the spring and summer months.

Below is a useful link to the BBKA which has information on:

  • How do I know it’s a honey bee?
  • Identifying Honeybees
  • Finding a local Swarm Collector
  • If you have honey bees in the structure of your property

Dorchester and Weymouth Beekeepers have a group of volunteers that make themselves available during swarming season to give help and advise and if appropriate will take the swarm away for you.
