Wild bee swarms can be looking for a potential home for a variety of reasons. Hive damage is one reason, but a more common reason is that the original colony grew too big for the hive. In this case, the colony will make a new queen and split the colony in two.<BR /><BR /> The swarm will take off and find a temporary home often on the side of a barn, in a tree branch or other less convenient places like under a picnic table.
