Honeybee swarm hanging in a tree ready to removed
In Colorado honeybees start to swarm the end of April and swarm season goes until the end of May or June. Swarming is a natural process for the honeybees and it is their process of reproduction. In the spring the bees increase their numbers and the colony makes queen cells to produce a new queen bee in preparation for swarming. When the new queen hatches from the queen cell the bees are ready to swarm. About half of the colony of worker bees will swarm off with the original queen to find a new home.
When the bees swarm from the original hive they will temporarily gather about 10-20 feet away from the original hive and they often like to collect on a nearby tree branch. This is when you call the Colorado Bee Swarm Hotline and we will come remove the swarm for free! 720-443-2331
By relocating the swarm before they find a final destination for a new home we can prevent the new swarm from going into someones soffit, chimney, pillar or attic!
