I know of two decent size looking swarms that have taken up residence in the most awkward places in the last week.

The first is about 60' up a church tower in a good sized cavity in the stone work.

The other is in a high chimney with really difficult access.

Neither are causing a problem at the moment so can be left alone for now and it'll be out with the bait hives next year!

Si.
