Kissimmee Bee Swarm in a Boat

Kissimmee Bee Swarm in a boat!
Kissimmee Bee Swarm in a Boat

The swarm alighted in the boat's battery box when it was at a St. Cloud trailer repair facility. Both St. Cloud & Kissimmee are home to vibrant populations of Africanized Honey Bees (AHB), which swarms at a much higher rate than it's European cousins, the European Honey Bee.

Swarms will land and try to setup a new colony just about anywhere, and this void in a battery box is just right for the budding colony to start. If you look closely, you can see bees flying above the opened lid of the box. We were able to perform a live removal of the swarm and hive it in one of our boxes.
