Swarming is the natural way that bees produce new colonies. During the swarming season it is common for a queen and many worker bees to exit their existing hive in search of a new home. Swarms may be feral or originate from a local apiary.
People are often alarmed at the site of a swarm flying or bunched up resting on a limb, but they are normally harmless if left alone. Capturing swarms is one way beekeepers can obtain bees to start new colonies and keep them from taking up permanent residence where they are not welcome.
