Control of swarming

Swarming is the reproductive act of the hive organism. The old queen abandons the mother hive along with a large number of bees, which carry the amount of honey necessary to support the process in their body. The honey supply of the swarm provides the initial energy to develop a new organism and quickly build the combs, giving the old queen the opportunity to lay eggs as soon as possible. From the eggs will be born new worker bees, that is workforce.You may hear a deafening buzz produced by many insects coming from a comings and goings inside a shutter or outside your walls, you look out to see what is so much noise and you find that you have a multitude of flying and buzzing insects. It is the bees that are swarming, at this point it is necessary to proceed with the removal of the swarm of bees.


Every year with the arrival of spring, beekeepers are faced with what is called the "May sickness", in this period some colonies of bees that make up the hives carry out the so-called "swarming of bees", ie the partial or total abandonment of the hive.We of Ecopiakos, as always attentive to the protection of the environment and useful insects, have acquired the certificate of beekeeper, therefore we are authorized to carry out the capture of bees by removing the swarm, or nest ofapi, taking it over.Once the swarm of bees has been taken, it is housed in a special hive, to be subsequently transported to a place suitable for building the hive.

What can we do

We have the proper authorization to remove the hives from the walls and then transport them elsewhere; we have masons specialized in closing holes or dismantling roofs to identify and take them. We are also authorized to work at height on an aerial platform if the nests are located at 20/30 or 50 meters.
