Swarm Removal Melbourne and Victoria

Call 0432 565 061


Swarm of bees on a branch in a treeAs the population in the hive gets too large a new queen is raised. The old queen and half of the other bees leave the hive in search of a new hive.During Spring and occasionally in Summer bees swarm. This is their natural way of reproducing colonies.

When the queen lands (e.g. on a branch or fence) the rest of the bees land on her forming a cluster. There they wait for the scout bees to find an appropriate cavity in which they can build a new hive.

Important Notes:

  • Generally, bees that have swarmed will not be aggressive. 
  • Leave them alone
  • DON'T KILL THEM!!
  • If you are within 100km of Kinglake Victoria, call or text 0432 565 061, or use the form below
  • Otherwise visit swarmpatrol.com to register your swarm and a local beekeeper will contact you.

If you have a colony that has taken up residence in your wall, a tree or some other cavity the removal is a bigger job. Please read on.
