A bee swarm is the result of the natural response to the reproductive process in bees occurring in the wild and in managed hives. It is a normal process for bees to swarm often in early Spring and Summer in Canberra. Canberra Region Beekeeper association members are always willing to help to catch a bee swarm. 


The sight of bees swarming can be unnerving to people yet a sting is unlikely as they’ve just gorged themselves on honey before departing.


Contact a member of the Canberra Region Beekeepers to catch a bee swarm.
