Bees are an integral part of New Zealand‘s environment, with around 27 species of native bees and 11 species of introduced bees. They play a vital role in pollinating native and introduced plants, providing an important service to New Zealands agricultural and horticultural industries. Native bees are particularly important in the pollination of native plants, and can be found in a range of habitats throughout the country.

Fun facts about bees:
1. Bees have been around for more than 100 million years.
2. There are over 20,000 species of bees around the world.
3. Bees can fly up to 15 miles per hour.
4. A bee’s brain is only the size of a sesame seed.
5. Bees are the only insect that produces food humans can eat.
6. The average worker bee produces about 1/12th teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.
7. Bees have five eyes and three body parts.
8. Bees use the sun to orient themselves and find their way back to the hive.
9. Honeybees have been known to recognize human faces.
10. Worker bees are all female and live for about 6 weeks. (drone bees are male)


How do I know if I have a bee swarm on my property?
You don’t need to be a professional beekeeper to know if you have a swarm or not. Most of us will encounter beehives in some way shape or form. Even with many bees buzzing around the hive, this isn’t a swarm.


Why do bees swarm?
A common question we get asked is: why is there a swarm of bees outside my house? A swarm is quite a spectacular sight and can become quite large (but nothing we can’t handle!). Usually, when a hive becomes too small for the colony, the bees will swarm.

Bees will also swarm when there’s more than enough food in the hive. Not all bees will leave the hive though – just the queen and a decent amount of worker bees. And there’s a lot of buzz when this happens! The bees will form a cluster (it varies in size) and this is what we call the bee swarm.


So why do we need to remove a bee swarm?
We need to collect and remove the bee swarm because the bees need a new home – this is why they’ve swarmed in the first place. They will probably find a new home on their own because this is what bees have done since the beginning!

But because bees are amazing creatures, we want to give them a hand. Plus, we give you peace of mind knowing that the bee swarm has been safely and humanely removed from your property.

What do we do with bee swarms?
We rehouse bees in beehives so they can get back to doing what they do best. Since a bee swarm is what happens when honey bees begin reproducing, it’s important to keep them safe so that they can reproduce safely, as nature intended.

Humane bee removal is our top priority because bees are the lifeblood of our ecosystems!

We love bees and we believe bees are absolutely vital to humanity.


This is why we will come to your property in Auckland to remove bee swarms in a manner that is safe for you, the bees and for us.


We wear quality beekeeping suits for our protection when we inspect the swarm. Once we know what we’re working with, we begin the process of collecting and removing the swarm from wherever it is located (most times it’s in trees but can be found elsewhere).


Not sure if you’ve got a swarm? Got a beehive that might need our help? Whatever it is, give us a call or send us a TXT message. We will respond as quickly as possible.
