Swarm

Swarm or Hive

Swarms are natural way for the Bees to

reproduce and create new bee hives.

This is the biggest question when you find bees at your place...

A swarm is a division of an existing bee hive that is looking for a new home.

 

A swarm will need to be collected as quick as possible as they typically find a new home within 1-3 days, Once they move into their home and start building the bees are then considered a bee hive.

 

I'm still not sure if I have a swarm or hive?
