Reporting a Swarm

Please ensure that you have the following handy to provide to the BeeKeeper:

  • Physical Address of where the swarm is located
  • Location of the swarm (e.g. in a bush, tree, on fence, etc...)
  • Height off the ground (does the beekeeper need a ladder)
  • Size of the Swarm (e.g. about the size of a football)

 

Once you have these details, please look at the below map to find a beekeeper or call the coordinator (details below) to arrange a beekeeper to come out and collect them. 

To find a beekeeper who will collect your swarm

Zoom in on the map and click the blue markers on the map to see a beekeepers phone number. The group does not warrant the services of the beekeeper(s) who all act individually and you are most welcome to phone a different one if you are not comfortable.

If you make the map full screen using the "[ ]" at the top right corner it may be easier.

Coordinator - Steve Leslie, 021 141 3947

BEEKEEPERS

If you want to be listed as a swarm collector you must Register here

Collecting Beekeepers agree to be available in working hours

If you agreed to collect, but your availability changes, you can pass the swarm details to another on the list but it is your responsibility to do so.

If a swarm moves into a building it is no longer a swarm and it is likely that a professional will be required. Discuss any resident colonies with the home owner, but you are not obliged to do anything.
