NEW COLONIES

Swarm Removal

Swarming is the process by which a new honeybee colony is formed when the queen bee leaves the colony with a large group of worker bees.

In the prime swarm, about 60 percent of the worker bees leave the original hive location with the old queen. This swarm can contain thousands to tens of thousands of bees. I remove them to fresh hives, thereby creating  a new home for the girls.
