I love honey bee swarms!

Reading PA honeybee removal 19601

To the uninitiated, this is a swarm of honey bees. This is what I’m after. I have dreams about these things. I started ilovebees.buzz as a way to get more of these. Have you ever seen one? If you have, that means an established colony is probably nearby. Let me know where you’ve seen them so I can place a bait hive (or swarm trap) in that area. I have about 20 bait hives that I need to find places for this spring. In my bait hives, I place a frame of old comb and some swarm attractant. Its the coolest thing ever to check your bait hives and see bees flying in and out. You usually have no idea where they came from. They could be from some beekeeper’s hive or from a colony in a tree or building. I’ll leave them in there for a couple days to fill out some foundationless frames, and then transfer them to their new location.

I keep honey bees in Reading, Bernville, and Fleetwood, PA without treatments. I love to garden and observe Wasps, Bumble bees, and ants. I also raise mealworms for my Eastern Spotted turtle and myself.
