Bees and wasps

Please refer to the Health and Environmental Services Amendment By-Law.

Collection of bee swarms

If you are experiencing a nuisance issue with bees from a neighbouring property please complete the general complaint form at the bottom of this page.

Removal of bee swarms by an experienced beekeeper prevents the need to use pesticides. The Tasmanian Beekeepers Association has a list of beekeepers who can remove a swarm of bees.

View the Tasmanian Beekeepers Swarm Collection information.


We do not remove wasps from private properties. If you have an issue with wasps, we recommend that wasp nests are removed by a pest control specialist.

If you find a wasp nest on City of Hobart property (such as a playground or park but not bushland reserve) please contact us on 03 6278 0200.
