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.

MARCH 21st ~ David McCartney presented his popular talk and demonstration on ...
                         "Mead Production".


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.
