Welcome to the West Sussex Beekeepers' Association website

Beekeeping in West Sussex

This website is intended to give information to those who are  interested in the keeping of honey bees in West Sussex, hive products and their uses.  

The majority of beekeeping activity is done at Divisional level, and for that reason this website should be seen as a signposting service.  We hope your enquiry can be dealt with quickly at local level.

 

Found a swarm?

Check out the BBKA website to find a local swarm collector closest to your postcode -  BBKA Find a Swarm Collector.  Or use the Divisions link to find your local Division and members who will be pleased to deal with swarms of honeybees.

Unfortunately we cannot help with bumblebees.  See the Bumblebee Conservation Trust website for advice:

A swarm in May is worth a load of hay;

A swarm in June is worth a silver spoon;

But a swarm in July is not worth a fly.

Stores of rich fragrance! Orchestras of song!

What marvelous seats of hidden alchemy!

How oft, when wandering far and erring long,

Man might learn truth and virtue from the BEE!
