It is a condition of inclusion on this list, that the beekeepers are financial members of the Beekeepers Association of ACT and that they have current public liability insurance. If you would like to be included on this list, please go to viewtopic.php?f=10&t=490 for instructions.
The following list comprises Members of our Association who have indicated their willingness** to provide a service to the local community by collecting swarm bees or unwanted bee colonies. All Members on this list are covered by their own Public Liability insurance.
** Some Members will collect for Free, others may charge a small fee to cover their costs but this is considerably less than you will pay to have the swarm poisoned by a pest exterminator. Please discuss this with them when you call.
If you have a Bee Swarm or Unwanted Bee colony we recommend you contact one of our members listed below as soon as possible, especially in relation to swarm bees, before they settle into a permanent place in your home - 'Give them a call before they get into your wall'.
