It’s that time of year again when we can expect to honey bee swarms. Following a fine start to spring many colonies made a great start in building up their strength and we quite expected early swarming. The un-seasonal weather of the last couple weeks however has put a hold on things and although we have seen some swarming, not to the extent that we expected.
The forecast is now looking better for the coming days so we can expect to more swarms of honey bees. If you are a member of the public and suspect you have a honey bee swarm our volunteer swarm collectors may be able to help. See our pages on insect identification and swarm collectors for assistance.
