Honeybee Swarms

Our head beekeeper, Alexandra Bartsch, is the Swarm Coordinator for the Middlesex County Beekeepers Association. Swarms of honeybees (as pictured below) can be found throughout the spring and early summer, and are unlikely to survive if not placed in a hive. Our beekeepers are, understandably, very anxious to save these bees by collecting them (without pesticides or chemicals). If you see a swarm of honeybees, please follow the steps below.
