General Beekeeping

The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) provides information on beekeepers' responsibilities (including the Beekeeping Code of Practice for NSW), the rights of the general public affected by beekeeping activities or nuisance bees, and what to do when bees swarm.

Bee Swarms

If you have a bee swarm in your backyard or local area please do not try and kill or interfere with the bees - the bees will not harm you if they are left alone.

To have a bee swarm removed and placed in a beehive, you can search for (via postcode) and contact a local beekeeper here.
