The Perfect Swarm
What Is A Swarm Of Honey Bees? Swarming is the process by which honey bee colonies reproduce to form new colonies. When a honey bee colony outgrows its home, becomes too congested, or too populated for the queen's pheromones to control the entire workforce, the workers signal that it is time to swarm. Swarming honeybees who have left their original/old colony to start a new colony, generally with the old Queen. Swarming is the natural method honeybee colonies use for multiplying their colonies. Swarming is the process by which a new honey bee colony is formed when the original settlement replaces the old Queen.
Honey Bees sometimes make a pit stop before reaching their desired destination during the swarming process. During this time, they can set up almost anywhere. If you think you have a swarm, give us a call.
