Swarming is a natural process for the honey bee and its purpose is to reproduce colonies of bees. A swarm of bees can appear to the public a frightning and a nuisance, but if left alone is relatively harmless. Swarms can happen at anytime but normally happen between April and the end of June.
Every beekeeper has a duty of care to ensure that their bees do not swarm and cause a nuisance.
Swarm prevention is about stopping the bees natural instinct to reproduce.
Swarm control is about controlling what will happen once the bees startbo show signs on swarming
