What to do if you come across a swarm of bees?
The whole of New South Wales is currently subject to a Biosecurity Order restricting the transportation or handling of honey bees. As a result, in areas such as the Hunter Valley swarms cannot be collected, but must be reported.
If you are aware of a swarm or other colony of honey bees it is vital that you report it as follows:
call the Exotic Plant Pest Hotline on 1800 084 881 (9am to 5pm, 7 days)
or use the online form at www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/hives
If there is any danger to your own safety or public safety please call 000 immediately.
If you are unsure, or need any help from the ABA please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
