( ALGS )

We had a small swarm of bees colonising a disused bird nesting box close to our greenhouse We noticed on the freecycle web site that a beekeeper had put a message saying that this is the time of year that bees swarm and he would pick up any to re home them. We contacted him and later that afternoon he came round and transfered the colony to a box to transport them to a new hive.They turned out to be Italian honey bees.

If anybody needs a swarm removed please contact the local bee keeping association
