Bee Swarms

Come springtime bees start to become more active with the longer days, warmer weather and all that wonderful nectar around, and sometimes they may leave their hive to embark on a new adventure.

There are many reasons why bees may leave their hive – natural disease control, genetic diversity, or could even be bee hive politics - disputes between the queen bees!

Swarms are not usually aggressive unless provoked, so the best thing to do would be call a bee keeper and get them to remove the swarm safely. For more details, have a read of the following article.
