FUMAPEST Advice on Pest Control for Bee Swarms
Bees are venomous - sometimes deadly - when they swarm
  Common problem: Bees swarms are often a serious problem during spring and summer. When the hive becomes too big, it splits in two, with a large group and their newly developed queen, swarming to establish a new hive.  It is common to find them setting up inside a wall cavity of a residential building.
Extremely aggressive: A swarm of bees can be aggressive if disturbed and may attack a person in large numbers - sometimes but rarely causing death. The venom of bees is highly toxic and may cause hideous swelling of the skin, particularly of children and people with a fair complexion.
Allergic reaction: Some people are highly allergic to the venom of bees. People have died due to the allergic rection. In any case, extreme care should be taken by the home owner to avoid bees in a swarm.
Pest Control - Bee Swarms - Safety First
  DO NOT attempt to eradicate a group of swarming bees, unless you have the complete range of protective equipment and professional knowledge essential in the circumstances.
The cost of professional pest control service to completely eradicate a bee swarm from a residential premises - using proper protective measures and the more expensive (but much safer) pyrethroid insecticides - will be approximately from $220 depending on size of infestation and access constraints.

WARNING: The NSW Govt EPA Pest Control Licensing is INADEQUATE
Be Careful in selecting a Pest Controller Unfortunately - it is far too easy to get a NSW Govt EPA issued pest control licence and start up a Pest Control business in NSW with little experience in providing safe and effective pest control services click here for more details.
The NSW Pest Control Licensing system is subject to National Competency Assessment guidelines. Mediocre testing can be carried by Private Workplace Assessors (not part of TAFE system). The so called competency assessment can be a combination of oral, written and visual tests.
Private Workplace Assessors are given general guidelines in the National Competency Standards but there is no set standard test or specific knowledge requirements. Once privately assessed as "competent" then the NSW Govt EPA Pest Control Licensing will issue a pest control licence to the individual. There is no published list of Private Workplace Assessors..
The System is Inadequate: Some Private Assessors offer a one week course. A person so issued with a pest control licence can set up a Pest Control business (not required to register with EPA Licensing Authority and employ many trainees, using pesticides in people's homes without direct personal supervision.
