Honey Bee Swarm at Chateau Julien Wine Estate

On May 7th, 2008 we noticed a large swarm of Honey Bees around the winery. When the bees finally landed - what a sight! The swarm was one of the largest the beekeeper has ever relocated. Bees weigh about 3,500 bees per pound. This was six pounds of bees or 21,000 total. Honey anyone?????

In America, beekeepers were opening up hives, preparing for the spring season. They found that there bees were dead and has dissappeared and nobody had an explanation for this.
