Ireland has 98 species of bees (one third of which are threatened with extinction), wasps and flies and sometimes it can be difficult to identify which is which.
Honeybees swarm typically from May to July in Ireland, but as beekeepers will tell you there’s nothing typical with bees! So, you may see them at other times. You may also wonder is it a swarm of Honey bees? Or just a nest of wasps or bumble bees?
