Members of Weybridge Beekeepers pick up a number of swarms each year.  If they do not wish to keep the swarms themselves, then the Swarm Co-ordinator holds a list of people looking to acquire a swarm.  If you would like to have your name added to the list of people wanting swarms please email:

Priority is generally given to beginners or in exceptional circumstances members who have suffered major winter losses and is at the discretion of the Swarm Co-ordinator.

You will be asked for a donation to the division of up to £25 –  based on the size of the swarm and time of year i.e. the bigger the swarm and the earlier in the year, the greater the donation.  Part of this donation goes to the swarm collector to cover their petrol costs in collecting the swarm.

If you are a member of the public want a swarm collected please visit either the BBKA website to find a local collector or our page on how to check you have a honey bee swarm and not something else.
