Like all living animals of the earth, honey bees also believe in increasing their population and they do it by laying eggs in the hive. Unfortunately, only one bee can live in a hive and take part in growing the population. A hive is actually a home to a one main leader ‘Honey bee queen’ and thousands of small bee workers and co-workers that do everything together with dedication and passion.

The scientists say that bee swarm is a part of reproduction cycle through which some bees die, some bees fly out, and some new bees are born to become employees of the queen. The hive is not only a home to bee workers and queen but also is a birthplace of queen larvae that are produced in the queen cells. These cells are unique compartment in the honeycomb where bee workers aren’t allowed to enter.

The queen bee begins to lay eggs in the queen cells as the result of which larvae are produced. These small creatures are mix of female and male bees. However, the young virgin larva is given a special royal jelly diet which allows it to grow securely and speedily. The female larvae are fed until it is mature to wear the throne of queen bee. All bees depend on the excretion from the worker bees during their growth cycle but a special attention is paid on the diet of virgin bee.

When virgin bees hatch, they lay eggs, and begin to fight each other. A war starts among different queens as only one leader can control the hive as per the rule. These bees sting and hurt each other to gain the reign of the colony. Unlike other bees, queens don’t have barbed stingers so they keep on stinging their animal queen repeatedly until the colony is turned into a swarm of bees. The queen bee stops laying eggs and cuts down on her die. The lighter diet helps the queen to reduce the weight so that it can fly easily. The lighter the bee is, the easier it is for her to get out of the hive. She takes a major portion of colony with her and flies away.

A honey bee swarm may contain the old queen as well as some virgin queens besides thousands of bee workers. When the queen comes out of the hive, half of the colony pursues her and the groups of bees take a temporary shelter here and there-on the trees, in a garage, or near a lake where they think they would be able to live securely.

It takes days, weeks or sometimes days for the honey bees to find a permanent nest to dwell in. The swarm lands in a particular spot for a couple of days. During these days, the bees are not very paranoid and aggressive. Though, they are full of honey but they rarely sting the human beings unless they are bothered to do it. They would attack you only if you tried to make them aggressive and do something absurd. If you will put on a fire near their residence, they will definitely come to you and harm you.

It’s usual to get a sight of honey bee swarm in Dublin OH during the start of spring as this is the time when most queens would lay eggs and new colonies are formed. If you witness a group of bees flying and buzzing in the air, you’d better not do anything that can pull their attention towards you.

Now you are stuck somewhere else and there is a group of honey bees flying around your home. You should get a professional help for the honey bee swarm removal and for it’s a good idea to call The Wildlife Control Company Inc.
