Bees have been clustered outside like this for the last two days on a known feral bee colony. The weather has been cloudy and cool (high 60's) with rain for the entire time so I am assuming this isn't just bearding. Could this be a swarm getting ready to leave or is it possible they have already "swarmed" but didn't get very far away because of the rainy weather? Trying to decide between putting out trap and trying to collect them. Any advice?
