Swarms - CDBKA Chesterfield Beekeepers

Go to content


If you have issues with bees then get in touch via our contact page.

Bumble Bees are ROUND in shape, Honey Bees are not round.

If you think you have a swarm of Honeybees, please follow the steps below.

1. Click on the following Link (BBKA SWARM REMOVAL LINK) this will give you the option to identify the bees (BBKA INDENTIFICATION LINK) and then by using the FIND A LOCAL SWARM COLLECTOR link, this allows you get the contact details of a beekeeper near you who is also a Swarm Collector.

2. Alternatively, our Association has a Swarm Coordinator who you could try to contact - John Hollingworth and his contact number is 07818 864939 or 07790736559

John will assess your situation and then arrange for one of our members to come and deal with the swarm of bees.

Also, it would be valuable to take a picture of the bee(s) if possible, also where the swarm is (i.e. Up in a tree, on a bush, in a hedge, etc.), as this will help the Beekeeper to bring the right equipment with them.

Where to find us at our club nights.
We meet every 2nd Monday in the month, at Whittington Moor Methodist Church at 7.30pm with the exceptions of Bank Holidays.
Whittington Moor Methodist Church Hall S41 8NA
