SWARMS

BEEKEEPERS TRY TO AVOID THEIR BEES SWARMING AS THEY TAKE MUCH OF THE HONEY WITH THEM

 

SWARMING BEES FULL OF HONEY ARE UNLIKELY TO STING

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU SEE A SWARM:

 

FIRST DON’T PANIC

STAND STILL AND WATCH

 

THEY MAKE A LOT OF NOISE BUT WILL NOT STING IF YOU STAY CALM

 

WHEN THEY SETTLE

THEN CALL THE KENT BEEKEEPERS SWARM

CO-ORDINATOR FOR THIS AREA ON 07919 404873
