  With spring-like weather conditions and warming temperatures, conditions are ripe for swarms of honeybees to be out looking for a new home. But even though they can be frightening, these buzzing clouds of bees aren’t really a hazard. So rather than getting out a spray or pesticide, the best response is to call a local beekeeper. That’s what Bruce Robinson did to get more detailed advice.

To find a beekeeper near you, go to the website for the Sonoma County Beekeepers Association  and click on the button that says “Swarm Help.”
