Mansfield Honey Bees
Swarming Honey Bees are magical, Local Beekeeper awaiting to hear from you, give us a call for any bee concerns in and around Mansfield, Nottingham & Chesterfield.
Honey bees naturally swarm each year to maintain the survival of the social colony, when in swarm state the bees are generally very docile and non aggressive as they have very little to defend which makes moving or collecting swarms relatively straight forward, unless they have chosen a chimney or a wall cavity. This then becomes much more of a task, but is occasionally straight forward with the correct safety equipment. Removing swarms or colonies is something we carry out as well as other collecting bees from trees and bushes in gardens.
Now the weather has started to warm and the spring flowers begin to grow, so will the bee colonies. Here at Mansfield Bees, we aim to re home all the swarms collected to give them emergency food until established where they can be kept and cared for with our other bee colonies and hives, placed locally around Mansfield.
Living in Mansfield reaching out to Nottingham and Chesterfield, I'm eager to help and collect feral honey bees either in your home, trees or even chimneys as they naturally have the urge to swarm each year. With 5 years experience and 18 hives, I'm also a member of the Chesterfield Bee keepers group, with well over 70 years experience of help at my disposal for those awkward colonies from other members of the group.
