Swarma€ is a term used when a portion of a hive – worker bees, a queen and possibly a few drones leave and look for a new home. The main reason for swarming is overcrowding in the hive.  In Los Angeles, Orange County, San Bernardino, Banning, San Diego, swarms usually occur between February and August, but swarms can occur at other times of the year.  A swarm may contain from 2,000 to 30,000 bees. This instinctive process is natureas mechanism for colony reproduction. Its a good thing.
