Swarm season is almost here.
What is a swarm you may ask. Honey bees swarm for a few reasons. To crowded in their hive, and it's their way to populate or multiply are a few reasons.
Don't be scared of them when you see a ball of bees. They rarely sting when they are in this state because they engorge themselves with honey making them fat. They are just looking for a new home. It could be a ball of bees the size of a soft ball or as big as a 5 gallon bucket. There is no need to spray them with anything. Once you see a swarm please remain calm and call me or another Beekeeper to remove them for you.
