Over the last couple of weeks there has been a number of instances reported of bees swarming in and around this area. It’s springtime, it’s absolutely a normal phenomenon this time of year as the bees leave their hive and look for a another place to live.
It happens when another queen bee is born inside the hive and either she or the old queen bee are forced to leave the hive as there can only be one queen bee per hive. The sight and sound of a swarm of bees in many people causes acute anxiety and fear but in fact generally speaking the bees unless disturbed, are at their most “friendliest” as it is the only day in the whole of their working life when they do not have to work.
This afternoon a sizeable swarm of bees decided that the perfect place to start a new life would be between the wooden shutter and window in a house in Filecchio.
The owners of the house were actually quite content that bees were making a home close to theirs, but maybe not quite that close and so they called in the experts to remove the swarm.
As you can see from the images and video, the pair of experts were so confident that the bees represented absolutely no danger, that the man who removed the swarm did so without any protection whatsoever and was just a very few puffs of smoke to calm the situation.
