golbee_small East Antrim Beekeepers Association.

Welcomes you.


Friendly greetings.

Our Association was established in 1941 and we continue to promote the benefits of a healthy bee population.

Our members come from the Antrim coastal area including Larne, Ballycarry, Whitehead, Carrickfergus, and Islandmagee.

Honey bees are often taken for granted, but on a global scale they are extremely important to us.


Are you interested in Beekeeping?

You are welcome to come along to one of our meetings:

3rd Thursday of each month between September and April in Ballycarry Community Centre at 7:30 p.m.


Would you like to know more?

Get in touch if you would like to know more about East Antrim Bees.


If you see a swarm ....

Three things:

1. Don't worry. Swarming bees have little or no interest in people. They are simply looking for a suitable place to establish a new colony. Therefore, a swarm of honeybees is not aggressive.

2. Are you sure they are honeybees? Beekeepers will not usually collect Wasps, Hornets or Bumblebees.

3. If you see a resting swarm ... click here and send us your phone number so that a local beekeeper can contact you and come to collect them.
