Honey Bee Swarms


Honey bees are the only insect that swarms. It is nature’s way of increasing the population. When a colony reaches sufficient size, the bees begin to make queen cells to raise a new queen. Before the new queen emerges about half the colony leave the nest with the old queen and seek a new colony site.

Changes to habitat over the past 70 years have meant that the number of wild or feral honey bee colonies has fallen.

The loss of 98% of the wild flower meadows has had a major effect on the forage available to bees. The use of specific herbicides mean that rarely do we see cereal crops with red poppies, blue cornflowers and other wild flowers growing in them. Field margins and road verges often contain little wildflower diversity.

Dutch Elm disease and more latterly, Ash Dieback, have reduced the number of mature trees with suitable nesting cavities for bees.

This has placed an increasing burden upon beekeepers, the majority of whom are amateurs, to maintain the honey bee population. Gardens are often the most popular sources of food for honey bees. My own bees, on the edge of the village, produce more honey than those located in apiaries in the countryside.

Lack of natural nesting sites means swarms often set up home in buildings. Disused chimneys, soffit boards and roof spaces are often used. Sometimes they occupy parts of building with no issues for the bees or householders but honey dripping through a ceiling can be a nuisance. I helped remove a swarm that had set up home in a gas boiler which the bees accessed through the flue pipe.

Survival rates of swarms left to their own devices are poor. Every year local beekeepers offer a free swarm collection service. Safely collected and house in a suitable hive, survival rates are much better.

Bees in a swarm are usually docile but you should never interfere with them. If you see a swarm, go to the British Beekeepers Association, (BBKA), website https://www.bbka.org.uk/swarm
and find you nearest swarm collector. The same collectors locally can be found on the Mid Bucks Beekeepers Association website

Household recycling centres, permits and waste facilities

Residents in Buckinghamshire will be able to dispose of small amounts of DIY waste for free at Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) from 31 December 2023.

The changes have been brought in by central government and will make it easier for people to freely dispose of small amounts of waste created at home from DIY projects such as re-tiling, renovating a bathroom or digging a pond in the garden.


. From 31 December 2023 any resident wanting to dispose of household DIY waste at a HRC will need to have an e-permit printed out or on a portable device, such as a mobile phone or tablet, before they visit. This only affects residents who wish to bring household DIY waste.


For more information, apply for permits etc visit the Bucks website:

Defibrillator: There is a defibrillator on the outside wall of the village hall. If it is required it can be accessed by calling the telephone number on the case and following the access instructions. Defibrillators are very easy to use. Although they don’t all look the same, they all function in broadly the same way. You don't need training to use one. The machine gives clear spoken instructions – all you have to do is follow them - and it won’t shock someone unless they need it. There is a useful video by the British Heart Foundation on Youtube if you want to know more.


In the event of a major incident or evacuation please contact Bob Kennedy 01296 661533 or mobile 07962 002250 or a Parish Councillor for instructions.
