Report a Swarm
If you see a cluster of bees similar to the pictures above it is likely that you have a swarm; don't worry they're usually docile. Simply stop anyone getting too close and contact your local beekeeper which you can find via the link below. Removal of honeybees is usually free of charge, assuming they can be safely accessed, although a donation to the local beekeeping association would be gratefully received.
Please note that beekeepers will only remove honeybees and it is advisable to send a photograph of the swarm to the beekeeper. Further information on swarms and identifying honeybees can be found on the British Beekeepers Association website. There is a page which will provide contact details of the nearest beekeeper for a particular postcode. You can reach this page directly here:
