Bee Swarms & Bee Removal in Cambridge

Honey bee swarms occur in both towns and the Cambridge countryside when bees are looking for a home new due to overcrowding, lack of food or water or persistent disturbance by humans or animals. Bee swarms do not always require bee removal and are not aggressive. However, bee swarms can be a health risk to those with allergies. Whilst they normally establish hives in shrubs or tree cavities, bee swarms can also set up their new home within voids in buildings such as chimneys and can risk damage to Cambridge properties. This is when professional bee pest control or bee removal is required.
