Call Me! Honey Bee Swarms

Call me if you see this!

No photo description available.

When you see bees in a cluster like this, it is due to the fact 2 queens were together in a hive and it got cramped in there.  The mother queen left with half of the colony. They cluster like this near the hive they just left until searcher bees find a suitable new home. They usually leave fairly soon. If not, NEVER call an exterminator. Call your local beekeeping society. They will send a keeper to relocate the colony.
