HONEYBEE SWARMS

Every spring and summer, Mother Nature encourages bee colonies to divide and create another colony of honeybees by “swarming”. This is when the queen and about half the bee colony leave the hive in search of a new home. This cluster may gather on a tree branch, bush, or building while awaiting directions from scout bees. If you see a swarm of honeybees, please call a beekeeper immediately (285-4509, 641-5933 or 816-2262). They will usually arrive within one hour and collect the swarm at no charge. DO NOT spray the swarm with bug spray! Honeybees are beneficial pollinators. Approximately 80 crops in Virginia rely heavily on their hard work.
