Swarms

Swarms of Honeybees 

Teifiside Beekeepers provide a free swarm collection service from Newport, Pembs in the south to Brechfa in the east and Aberaeron in the north taking in Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn, Llandysul and all places in between.  

Contact details for swarm collection 2020 are to be confirmed


TBKA are urgently seeking an individual who is willing to act as the coordindator for the collection of swarms. 


Last season we had an extraordinary number of swarms to deal. Many members have been involved either in collecting or receiving swarms but the list  for this needs to be updated.

 The list falls into three categories:

  1.  hose wanting a swarm either for their first colony or those looking to increase their colonies
  2. those willing to collect swarms and advise the public on problem bees
  3. those looking for experience in collecting swarms

 We desperately need volunteers so if you are willing to do this or if you fall into category 1) or 3) above please can you contact treasurer@tbka.org.uk stating which category you fall into, giving your contact details and general availability. 

In order to have access to swarms for our members, we need to be responsive to swarm calls and we can only do this by having volunteers who are willing to go out and collect a swarm.
