Save the swarm

Bee rescue available in Mt. Holly

MounT HOLLY—Warmer weather can cause honeybee colonies to form swarms and go looking for a new home.  If you see a mass of honeybees hanging somewhere in the open like on your house, a tree or shrub, or anyplace else, this might be a swarm.  They are not aggressive and should not be disturbed or harmed.

Jim Corven of Fenn Farmstead and Gardens will help you take care of them. Call as soon as you first see them, and he will come to collect them from your property at no charge. Corven is a beekeeper in Mount Holly and loves to collect those homeless honeybees. So if you see a swarm, call Corven at 802-259-2311.
