Honeybees are recovering from a difficult summer of 2022 with its prolonged period of drought and a winter that delivered several very cold spells.

Many beekeepers have lost a number of hives and we want to rescue every swarm we possibly can.

Swarms collected by beekeepers have a three times greater chance of survival than if left to fend for themselves.

We urge members of the public to be vigilant for swarms of honey bees. If you see a swarm please contact:
