What We Do

Dublin Beekeepers offering a Free Swarm Collection service. PLEASE NOTE...While Bumblebees are endangered and protected, they are not Honeybees and are no use to us as Honeybees keepers. We have a list of Beekeepers in Dublin and around the Country who are always willing to collect swarms of Honeybees and usually your call will be dealt with within the hour. The swarm of bees will be removed and placed in a hive and all their needs are taken care of by the beekeeper. Please call as soon as a swarm has landed, and before it may leave to form a new home in some unwanted space like your garage roof, attic or porch canopy.

Please don't panic and ring Pest Control to kill bees, they are a protected species. Contact a Dublin Beekeeper (Keith) 087-281-8759. Swarming bees are very unlikely to sting.
