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.

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.
