The exception to this is when: there is no beekeeper available to collect the swarm the bees you have are not honey bees – see how to identify honey bees the honey bees have settled in an inaccessible place, for example if they are deep inside a chimney – we can advise about this Please note that no guarantee can be given that someone will be available to attend or that the beekeeper will collect the swarm.
