The police HQ also has a list of bee collectors, if you spot a swarm of bees whilst you are out & about in a place where they could pose a danger to people, ring them and they will give you the number of somebody nearby who can come out with bee catching equipment.

"in a place where they could pose a danger to people" - why do people keep saying that swarms are dangerous? They're not 'attack bees', in fact I regularly put my bare hand in the swarm to prove how safe they are. The link I gave is up-to-date - until recently the Council were giving out a deceased beekeeper's number.

I know that swarms are not dangerous, I have stood in the middle of them taking photos of the bees buzzing around me. However, a swarm that has plonked itself on a hedge on a pavement or outside a school gate is somewhat of a hazard. There's always going to be somebody with an allergy, people panicking, and numpties throwing something into the swarm trying to disperse it. I'll be the one with the camera, going in for close-ups!

We are last thing they have on their mind whilst swarming, it's all about staying close to the Queen.
