A swarm is created when a well-established hive becomes over populated. So the monarch queen leaves the hive and takes a portion of the colony with her. A swarm consists of anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 bees. Click To Read More
These bees are looking for a place to create a new hive. They can become very dangerous if provoked. Do not try to remove the swarm or disturb it in any way. If a swarm of honeybees land in a tree or out in the open, on your property it is qutterly likely that they will move on within 24 to 48 hours. Where they will go only the bees know for sure. They should be removed by a professionally in a timely manner to prevent the swarm from moving into a structure and creating a hive within, causing the cost of removing the bees to increase dramatically.
