Honey Bee swarm

Apis

Habitat:

They temporally landed in a Cedar Elm in a suburban neighborhood.

Notes:

Swarms such as the ones pictured above are merely Colonies that are in transition. Normally these Swarms are found hanging from tree limbs, fence post or any place where the swarm can gather close to the Queen while scouts are sent out to look for a more permanent home. If left alone these swarms will only be in place from just a few minutes to a few hours and will disappear just a quick as they arrived. Generally these swarms are very docile and the swarming Bees usually will not sting. When Honey Bees swarm they gorge themselves with honey before leaving the hive which makes it very hard for them to double over and sting.
