Do you have a swarm of bees on your property?

A swarm is a large group of worker honeybees with a queen looking for a new home. There are several reasons why honeybees swarm but it mainly comes down to a basic survival instinct where the bees reproduce at the colony level thereby creating two or more colonies from one. Bees in a swarm are generally docile and not inclined to sting or attack, and will usually leave within a few days to find a more permanent location.

If they are wasps or bumble bees they will disappear with the first frost. Before you contact the association please take a moment to check out the following link to see if your problem is with honey bees, bumble bees or wasps. Identification Website
