Before contacting a swarm collector it is worth checking that it is Honey Bees and not other types of bees such as Bumblebees, Wasps, Hornets etc, the collectors below will not deal with anything other than Honey Bees, if in doubt check them against the identification chart.

- The above bee keepers will not in every instance be able to deal with all honey bee swarms, especially if the swarm is not easily or safely accessible from the ground, or if they have entered into a property where dismantling maybe needed to access the swarm etc.
- The decision about what action to take is that of the bee keeper alone.
- Tiverton branch of DBKA is acting simply as a co-ordinating body; any arrangements are solely between the bee keeper and the member of the public who has the problem with the swarm.
