Swarms

The BBKA page has information on identifying honey bees.

swarms in may 020

Dorchester and Weymouth Beekeepers have volunteers that make themselves available during the swarming season to give help and advise and if appropriate will take the swarm away for you.
The list of swarm collectors now has part of the postcode. I suggest you ring the one closest to you but if there is no answer keep working through the list. We are keen to help both you and the bees.
