Our annual reminder from the DC Beekeepers:

“Spring is here and honeybees sometimes go searching for new homes. They (and we) could really use your help. If you see a swarm of bees, please call or text (202) 255-4318 or email [email protected] and and a team of DC beekeepers will spring into action to give house-searching honeybees the home they are looking for! Insecticides will not take care of your situation, but we can.”

    Or, if it’s on your own private property, you can leave them there :) I had a colony one year in my backyard, and my flowers have never looked better! They staked out one little spot and I left them alone there.
