SWARM? Call us, don't email
It is that time of year again, when the hives feel a little cramped and ambitious queens decide to decamp for more spacious digs. Swarms are a part of spring, and our early warmth may make this season worse than others.
Our Swarm Control page has everything you need to know if you spot a swarm, including a list of first responders in your area.
The Beauty of the Bees
Check out the article by Kadua Galietti on the Beauty of the Bees and the beautiful macro photography work that accompanies the article.
