Island Bees

Look the same

I have been getting a lot of swarm calls. Swarms look about the same when they are in a bush or tree. The hang there about the size of a football. Sometimes they are larger than that, but most time about that size. This woman was funny. She called and said she had bees in her tree. I asked her if they were about the size of a football. She (very excitedly) told me they were much bigger than that, they were at least the size of 3-4 footballs. When I got there I saw that indeed they were the size of a football. She said when she saw them arrive in a “bee Cloud” she was sure the bee apocalypse had come. These girls were getting ready to go. There were scouts all over the swarm doing their dance. When I dropped them into the nuc they settled down right away.
