I got to experience a swarm today. When I opened our back door to put the dogs out, I heard a ROAR of buzzing. I looked up above our hive and saw a huge black cloud of bees. They swarmed into a nearby tree in our yard, about 100 feet up or so. My husband was already at work, and I had to leave for work, so I didn’t have time to open our hive to see if it was our bees, however I don’t believe it was. We had our hive open a week ago, added a super, and had ZERO queen cells. They appeared very happy and comfortable, so I see no reason for them to have swarmed. Still keeping my fingers crossed until we can get in and check. Either way, it was a pretty neat thing to witness.
