Capturing a Bee Swarm (Video)

Watch as Editor Russell Mullin captures a swarm.

Swarms take place when a hive has grown too large and splits in two. Then, a queen leaves the original hive with a number of worker bees. Swarms don’t stay like this for very long, so if you’re interested in capturing one, you may only have a day or two at the most.
