Scotland: Huge swarm of bees on the wall of Whitburn

Stunning images and video show an estimated 15,000 bees suddenly appearing on a house.

The huge swarm was spotted at Whitburn and two beekeepers were called in to save the day.

The incredible sight was seen Thursday morning when the bees are said to have made quite a bit of noise during their time in the area. Chronicle Live reported.

Concerned passerby Keith Adams was stunned to see the swarm and asked on Facebook if any beekeepers in the area could help relocate them.

“I have a small home maintenance business and I was visiting a customer on the street,” Keith said.

“There was nothing on the way in, but 15 minutes later on the way out the swarm had appeared. It was that quick.”

Beekeeper Jodie Newbrook quickly offered her help and traveled from her home in Gateshead to remove the swarm.

The 39-year-old spent about 40 minutes collecting the bees with fellow beekeeper Christine Cajiao before taking them to her allotment hive, where they’re said to have settled in well.

“It’s like a race between beekeepers to get them as everyone wants to go and collect the swarms,” ​​Jodie said.

“That’s because if you get a swarm you can keep the bees and if you buy a hive like that it costs around £200.

“Right now it’s swarming time because the bees are coming out of hibernation. They come out for the flowers and because the queen bee starts laying again after the winter.

“They swarm because another queen bee is being produced in the colony and the two queens will not live together.”

Jodie, Board Member of the Tyneside Beekeepers Association, has been keeping bees as a hobby for the past two years. She said the Whitburn swarm has around 15,000 bees and swarms often form when the weather is warm in May and June.

“A few swarms have already come in [the Whitburn] Area in front of it, so some beehives must be very close by,” she said.

“But you can get swarms anywhere. You’d be surprised how many beekeepers there are and how many hives they have nearby.”
