Please be aware that EMBA is only able to offer help with honey bees, not bumble bees or other insects. There has been a dramatic increase in Tree Bumble Bees taking up residence in the Lothians - especially in bird boxes. We are unable to assist with these.
For more information on Bumble Bees, please visit the Bumblebee Conservation Trust
If you are having a problem with honey bees, please read our page about Swarms
