Hi I was talking to a possable customer about removing a hive from his home. About a minute after I finished explaining what a swarm was we heard a loud humming from the front of the house. The bees were swarming. The air was just a funnel of bees it was quite a sight. After a few minutes a swarm formed at the hive entrence and they went back inside.Any thoughts on what i saw? On the positive side the homeowner had his check book out and wanted me to fill in the number, any number! I need to learn to train the bees to do that. Help me get that new one ton chevy
A virgin queen's flight would be my guess. Or a play flight. Both look a lot like a swarm but then they all go back in.
