Dear Sara

In response to your plea for help regarding swarms, the London Bee Keepers Assocation have a website and under swarms they give the following advice:

If they are not wasps, bumble bees or solitary bees, and have settled in large numbers on a building, post, bush or tree they could well be a swarm of honeybees. If this is the case, then the LBKA can help collect a swarm. The LBKA swarm help line is 07922 147379 or call our Swarm Coordinator on 07864 933 266.

Once you have called a collector remain calm, leave the swarm alone, make sure everyone is away from the swarm and wait for a swarm collector to arrive. This may well be in the evening but swarms will happily sit quietly for hours even days so be patient.

The LBKA does not charge for removing swarms. And there is always a happy ending because the LBKA takes in swarms makes sure they are free of disease and then allocates to new LBKA bee keepers.

Best wishes
