Honey bee “Swarm Season” is in full effect, but don’t worry. Southwest Honey Company has advice to mitigate swarms and help the bee population.
If you spot a large clump of honey bees on a branch, in a tree, or other covered area, you have found a swarm. Honey bees swarm naturally when the conditions are right for them to split their colony. This is how they keep their species populated.
They generally swarm during the spring, but honey bees have been reported to swarm throughout the summer and fall as well. This year, with spring-time being a bit delayed, swarm season could also be effected, and we could see swarms all the way into the summer months.
