Coronavirus: advice and support

New national restrictions were introduced on Thursday 5 November. Let’s continue to work together to help prevent the spread of the virus and Protect Norwich.

Latest information


We do not provide a pest control service for the removal of bees, but we can offer advice and details of local beekeepers that can help you.

Bees are often confused with wasps because they have a similar shape. However, wasps have distinct yellow/black bands around the abdomen whereas bees tend to be a lighter brown/yellow colour.

Local beekeepers are happy to give advice and assist in identifying bees.

Removing honey bees

Beekeepers will volunteer to collect swarms of honey bees whenever they can. They do not remove bumble bees or wasps.

Alternatively, visit the British Beekeepers' Association website to find a local registered swarm collector.
