(WWLP) – A 22News viewer sent a video of bees surrounding a swing outside.
The video from Marie was emailed to email@example.com on Sunday and shows a massive swarm of honey bees. Typically, honey bees nest in hollow trees or man-made structures for about two to three months.
Bees tend to swarm near their hives or honeycombs, so if a swarm is visible then a nest is nearby. Swarms are usually not aggressive unless provoked, so it is important to keep a good distance from swarms in order to avoid provoking them.
The Massachusetts honey beekeeping association can assist in relocating honey bee swarms.
