Bee Swarms Are On The Move

box 010

 

Spring has sprung here in Western Australia and bee swarms are now on the move.

Weather has been very wet, cold and windy of late and is not the kind of weather bees need to start anew when leaving their old hives. With a bit of sunshine and increased temperatures we should see more swarming culminating in a frenzy in October.

The above swarm was rescued from a lemon tree next door to a hive in a tree trunk. There’s something about lemon scent that bees prefer.
