Swarm Collection Volunteers

We are currently experiencing a large quantity of calls to swarms which when we attend turn out to be Bumblebees, in most cases we are unable to help with these as Bumblebees are a protected species however guidelines can be found at the following address -http://bumblebeeconservation.org/about-bees/faqs/moving-bumblebee-nests/               

If you find a swarm - firstly don't worry the likelihood of being stung is very small.  Secondly contact one of the volunteer swarm collectors in your area from the BBKA Website -
