A honeybee swarm is curious, not furious!

In search of a new home the swarm is waiting for scout bees to point the way.  
They are docile and only want to stick together for the big move.
Beekeepers are thrilled to capture, remove and place these bees in a hive.
Please call before you spray!
It is a fascinating process to observe our beekeepers at work and you’ll be glad you called.
