Developing New Swarms
A natural process of large hives is to create a new queen and when this happens, one queen leaves the hives with up to 1/3 or better of bees that go with her.
They typically go 100-300 yards away and create a large "ball" called a swarm. It could be in a tree, bush, fence, on the side of a house, almost anywhere.
While there hundreds of "scouts" are flying to find a new home for the swarming bees. Eventually they will agree on a place and literally fly away to the new home.
Swarms are very important to me, as I catch swarms, then put in an empty hive on one of the yards, and viola a new hive of bees is started.
If anyone sees a swarm, PLEASE CALL MY CELL 610-331-6279, if time before they leave I will catch it and relocate it to another yard.
Some of customers that see a swarm take a picture of it and text to my cell phone so I can see the size for capture equipment.
PLEASE TELL ALL OF YOUR NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS ABOUT ME CAPTURING SWARMS!!!!!
