What is a swarm?
A swarm is the honey bee’s natural way to propagate and form new colonies. A portion of the bees from the original colony (hive) leaves to form a new colony.
Before the bees leave, they fill up with honey and then all at once they exit the hive and then regroup nearby, hanging on a tree, a fence or other object while scout bees go out and search for a new home. With all that honey in their stomach, they live this way for a few hours to a few days. Typically the bees are quite docile at this point but as time advances and more of that honey in their stomach is used, the crankier they may become. This is the prime time to have someone come and get the bees and take them away.
If you have a honey bee swarm near Coupeville, Oak Harbor, or north Whidbey Island, please let us know right away!
We will save all the honey bees that we capture or remove and give them a new home.
If we can’t do it, we’ll refer you to someone who can!
