Funds from sales will help to sustain and grow our swarm rescue program.
Swarming is the process by which a queen bee leaves the colony with a large group of worker bees in search of a new home. In some cases, a new queen is created, while the old queen takes off with about 60% of the workers to start a new hive. Honey bee swarms collect in large clusters that can sometimes be bigger than a basketball. They can contain thousands to tens-of-thousands-of bees. While they're not dangerous, you should keep your distance and contact a local beekeeper to safely relocate it.
