The swarming season in South Africa lasts generally from September through to February. A number of qualified Northerns Beekeepers are available to remove migratory and feral swarms professionally and humanely (where possible).
Note, that in terms of the Agricultural Pests Act any person who keeps bees or deals with bees in any way is required by law to be registered with the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, (DAFF). Ensure that the person contracted to remove your feral swarm is a Registered Beekeeper with a DAFF number. A number of Pest Control companies claim to be able to remove bees but generally these colonies are destroyed with gas or fumigants.Contact us for bee removals
