SWARMS  
 
First, please check that the insects you are concerned about are honey bees. Check against the pictures below

If you have honeybees, a beekeeper may be able to remove them for you - contact Dorothy Todd on 01772-601264 or Alan Manwaring on 07748 522037 for more help.

Bumblebee nests will die out at the end of the summer and unless they are causing a nuisance can be left to their own devices.

Wasps will be removed by the Councils Enviromental Services. They can be contacted on 01772-906907
