If you would like to contact someone in your area about a swarm of honey bees then please click on this button and select one in your area



A request has been received from a researcher for the BBC Natural History Unit, Bristol, who is looking to film, in a studio setting, a queen hornet wake up from over-wintering.

Should you find such an insect, perhaps under the roof of one of your hives or anywhere else for that matter, it would be appreciated if you would contact:-

Abigail Lees | Researcher | Le Village
BBC Natural History Unit|7-9 TPR Rm 1.17|Whiteladies Rd|Bristol|BS8 2LR| UK
+44 (0)117 97 46682

She will then make arrangements to take it away and look after it for the duration of filming?
Apparently she has great difficulties in finding queen hornets.

Congratulations to DARG
