Before Bee’s swarm they fill their stomachs with Honey and then the worker Bee’s heavy with Honey and the Queen Heavy with eggs leave the hive and generally gather in a not too distant tree to rest while scout

Bee’s go and look for a new nest site.  A suitable

nest site could be a hole in a tree, a building or just a

compost bin.  When Bee’s swarm they are usually busy looking for a new home and not normally interested in humans. When a swarm is resting it forms a cluster about the size of a football or rugby ball.
