First swarm of the season at the apiary in Tinker Park. A swarm usually lands close to the parent hive and regroups before searching for a new home.

Fortunately we were present when they swarmed and able to provide that home.

Worker bees fanning and distributes pheromones telling members of the swarm that they have found their new homes and that the queen is safely in the hive.
