Do you have a tree with some bees and you want to get rid of them or catch them? This video shows you how a bee keeper removes a large swarm of bees.
The Tuscan Maremma is one of the most beautiful settings that nature has to offer. In the countryside exists a rich heritage of beekeeping and honey production. If the temperature rises quickly in spring, the bees get pretty warm in their hives. Once a hive becomes overcrowded, a queen will split off, taking a large portion of the existing colony with her to create a new colony. This is called swarming.
Bees are an important part of the natural environment and we should protect and save them. Each and every swarm presents an excellent opportunity for us to help the bees.
What to do if they land in your garden?
Emanuel M., a beekeeper in Castiglioncello Bandini, Tuscany, shows how to capture a swarm.
This was the first bee hive at Podere Santa Pia.
