Do You Have a Honey Bee Problem?

We only collect honey bee swarms, so we recommend identifying your bees prior to contacting us. However, if you are unsure of the type of unwanted swarm you have, get in touch for free advice.

Honey bees in a general cluster in trees, fences, compost bins, bushes and can occasionally form in wall cavities.

We recommend dealing with bee swarms in a timely manner to prevent them from moving on into difficult to reach places.

What is a swarm? 

All honey bees swarm, it's their way of reproducing. They will slim the queen down so she can fly taking up to half of the colony with her. When the new honey bee colony is formed, this is what is referred to as a swarm. A hive will swarm more than one if not maintained properly. Once you see a swarm, you'll never forget it. It's quite a sight to see.

Prices & Areas Covered

Swarm collection is free in the local area of Seaford, Newhaven, Peacehaven and Lewes. I am a bricklayer by trade, this means if any structural work will need to complete in order to remove the bees, I can personally do this for a competitive price. This can be negotiated on the site visit. To arrange the collection of unwanted bees at your home or business.
