If you see a honey bee swarm, don't be alarmed!

Take care to move away quickly but calmly and try to move inside while shutting windows and doors.

The bees are only interested in finding a new home at this time and not likely to sting unless disturbed.

It is best to call for assistance as a swarm may settle for a day or more while they are looking for a new place to establish a colony.

Beekeepers use this time when the bees are settled to capture them and give them a new home.

It is a fasinating time in a bee colonies lifecycle, so observe a real treat- but observe safely...
