Swarming Season In Rwanda.


It's that time of the year where colonies start splitting. The process is called "Swarming".

Swarming usually happens during spring and it's a mean of reproduction. There are times where a colony split a few times and the first breakaway is called the primary swarm. Almost 60% of the colony will follow the old queen while the new queen stays. There are times where there are secondary swarms, the mother colony may even gets depleted.

It is always breathtaking to witness a swarming in process. They may look threatening but actually they do not sting during the process.

Not many beekeepers can actually witness an African honeybees swarm. It's amazing!
