Thanks to a reader for passing on from this reminder from the DC Beekeepers:

“If you see a swarm of bees, please call, text or email, and a team of over a dozen DC beekeepers will Spring into action to give those homeless bees the place to live for which they are searching!

It has been another bad Winter and cold Spring, and many of us have lost hives, so we could really use your help.

If you see a swarm of bees, or even think you might, please call (202) 255 4318 or email dcbees at dcbeekeepers.org and we can get an experienced beekeeper over there quick to help you out. Insecticides truly will not take care of your situation, but we can.

Please remember: honeybees are under extreme survival pressure, and those swarms represent the few that have not only figured out how to survive pests, pesticides, and climate change, but THRIVE. We beekeepers can grab those bees, give them safe homes somewhere else, and help ensure a healthier future where honeybees can continue to make our food supply and green spaces grow. It is a kind of compliment to DC that we have a place where honeybees and people can collaborate so well.”
