Please feel free to contact us to help you with the removal of any swarms of bees you should find. Bees are hugely important pollinators so, please, do not destroy them.

We do not remove wasps or wasp nests.

We do our utmost to assist you in swarm removal while endeavouring to protect the health and safety of all concerned. We will also re-home the bees that are recovered.

We are not liable for the costs or hire of any equipment etc. involved in the recovery of swarms.

Normally, there is no charge for swarm collection but a donation to EWBA would be very welcome when a member assists you with removing a swarm of bees.

Contact Anne Marie at 086 2064919 or Willy at 087 2258883 for assistance. Please send a photograph via WhatsApp
