Swarm Season

The days are warming up and the spring swarm season is upon us. If you see a swarm don’t be alarmed, for the bees are in their most docile state. Please contact a beekeeper to collect the swarm and give them a good home.

If you see a swarm in Durham County you can call the two numbers below and they will contact the closest beekeeper to collect the swarm. You can also post a message on our listserv which will alert club members DCBAgooglegroup
