Real estate in our neighborhood is pretty hot right now, at least for the bees. There are at least three separate swarms in our neighborhood today. This particular hive, on their way to a new home, decided to swarm on one of our crabapple trees today. That would be the crabapple tree that is 10 feet away from our playground, conveniently. At least they decided to do this during school hours.
The local beekeeper came out and managed to brush many of the bees (including the queen, apparently) into a box, and the rest followed.
