The National Bee Unit has been receiving a large amount of calls regarding honey bee swarms. Please note that we do not deal with swarms, however, you may find the following advice useful in re-directing your enquiry:
First of all it is important to establish what sort of insect it is. Usually, beekeepers are only willing to assist with honey bees. The British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) website holds list of volunteer Swarm Collectors and has a very useful identification and guidance page.

Our Apiary will be a live resource for learning about the environment and pollinators Our plans include a wildlife pond for frogs and newts and as a source of water for the bees complete redesign of planting to include maximum forage throughout as much of the year as possible accessible for the elderly and those in wheelchairs sensory garden building with a glass or Perspex panel so those either allergic to, or scared of bees, can still see them up close Alongside all this fantastic work outside... We will welcome schools and community groups onsite and make a shared learning space of our hall. We will change the access route to larger groups and have disabled toilets installed. With this in place we will be in better stead to teach all sorts of different groups about the importance of bees, food security and the environment.
