Honey Bee Swarm in Barnstaple on a Building Site Underneath Scaffolding Boards

Honey Bees Looking for a New Home in Barnstaple

I have just collected this nice little swarm of Honey Bees from a building site in Barnstaple.

I got a call from the Site Manager. The bees had been clustering underneath some scaffolding since yesterday. Conveniently located at ground level, I put them in a box and brought them back to our isolation apiary.

Have a swarm of Honey Bees?  Click here. Donations go toward paying expenses, feed, medication and initial housing of the bees. Even though I have been actively involved in bee keeping for over 10 years, the honey bee continues to amaze me and is an animal that is never predictable and a subject that I continually learn from. Through my learning and the guidance of others, I always want to do the best for the bees and put their interests first. Due to the the interaction of man, the diseases we have introduced, and the naivety of cross breeding with foreign bee varieties, bees can no longer live in the UK in the wild without the support of the bee keeper. Looking after bees requires purchase of feed, housing, and medication.  Any funds we make from the sale of honey, beeswax or bee related products is always put back into ensuring that our honey bees are looked after and their welfare is upheld. You donation contributes to supporting the Honey Bee in North Devon. Thank you Allen
