Cool bee videos

Swarming typically occurs during Spring when bee colonies increase significantly in size.  It's their natural method of spreading their population. As a Bee Keeper its always good fun to catch a swarm, especially when its from one of your Hives. In this case, the swarm settled on a small fruit tree in the middle of an easily accessible back lawn.  I popped an empty hive right beside it....they smelled the wax frames and honey within and decided that it would make a good new home....and in they marched.

Called to swarm of bees sitting on a small tree on a mates back lawn, proved to be an easy catch.
