Our group seeks to serve the wider community in many ways. One of them is to assist with honey-bee related activities in residential and public spaces.
- Swarm collection - the removal of those clusters of bees which form on branches etc. in spring and early summer. Usually happens around Aug to Jan. A small, standard fee may be applied for this service.
- Bee removal - the removal of bees which have built nests, typically in compost bins, possum boxes and various parts of buildings. Usually possible from late spring to mid summer. Fees are negotiated based upon the specifics of the case. There are instances where bee removals are not possible due to inaccessibility and other risks - in which case we reluctantly suggest the services of a pest controller.
Please contact one of the group members listed below, between 9am and 7pm please.
