Swarming

    Swarming is the only way that bees have of preserving themselves. Beekeepers have to keep up on their hives so they don't swarm and they can keep the bees in the hives making honey. 


Some beekeepers feel that keeping a queen bee over one year and to donate the old queen to observation bee colonies. 

Older queens are more likely to swarm.
