Honey bee swarm 🐝🍯❀️

Exciting evening here in Pantyfod when one of our hives decided to swarm & make a new home on our pond bench πŸ™ˆπŸπŸ― Looks like we may have 3 hives sooner than we thought πŸ˜πŸπŸ―πŸ™ŒπŸ» Swarming is a honey bee colony's natural means of reproduction. They swarm for one of two reasons. Either the hive has become too crowded so they split into two groups (or more), with one group remaining in the existing hive. Or they abscond. ... In preparation for the swarm, the workers will deprive the queen of food in order to slim her down so she can fly #swarm #honeybees #dietqueen #hive ❀️🐝🍯
