This is Peter Grimes' website, dedicated to re-homing bumblebees and honeybees.

The website is currently in development, but will soon give you information about identifying honeybees, bunble bees, hornets and wasps.

Honeybees and bumblebees are precious pollinators. Without them we would not have much of the food that we enjoy today and our diet would be very boring.


Honeybees live in a tightly-woven social community consisting of one queen, up to 60,000 workers (female) and a few hundred drones (male). Workers 'born' late in summer over-winter with the queen and become active when temperatures rise and pollen and nectar become available.

In the bumblebee community, only the queen lives through winter. She emerges early in spring to set up a new colony.

Honeybees and bumblebees build nests where they store food and raise their young. They are best left undisturbed.
However, their choice of ideal nest site is not always convenient for humans.
For advice if you are bothered by bees please contact Peter at aabees@hotmail.co.uk. If necessary and possible, he can help to re-home them.
