Beekeepers in Media City catching a swarm of bees with their bare hands

A woman was filmed using her bare hands to capture swarms of bees hanging from a tree.

Beekeeper Damson Tregaskis – who goes by Hive5Mcr on Twitter – was spotted in Salford on Tuesday afternoon trying to catch the buzzing insects before taking them to Stockport for housing.

Wearing a hazmat suit but no gloves, Damson is helping the bees outside Costa Coffee at MediaCityUK, the reports Manchester evening news.

She turns to onlookers and says, “Anybody wanna help me?”

The clip shows Damson standing amid thousands of insects that fly around her and form colonies on a tree branch. It was shared on Twitter, where Den Glanzig wrote: “I wasn’t expecting this when I stopped by MediaCity UK for lunch.”

He added: “It caught me off guard at first. I didn’t notice them at first as I walked past these trees every day.

Damson who operates the Hive5Manchester websitewhich runs community engagement events and mentoring courses for beekeepers, said she collected the swarm of bees and housed them in an apiary in her Stockport garden.

She said: “There was a swarm of bees in MediaCity that someone informed me about. In the video I collect them from the tree and then set them up in our Stockport apiary.

“I am a professional beekeeper and usually manage hives for corporate clients and do beekeeping courses and experiences.” She added that she will share updates on her Twitter page.

Last year, also in June, the Manchester evening news reported on the incredible moment thousands of bees descended on a BMW in front of an office building. And just a few days later, another swarm settled in front of the Albert Schloss bar.

According to the British Beekeepers Association, a honey bee colony will swim to reproduce when the old queen leaves a colony with some of the bees. They leave their hive and find a place to wait until scout bees decide on a new home for the colony.

Most honey bee swarms are not aggressive, but people are asked to stay away from them as a precaution. It usually happens on sunny days between the months of May and July.
