Watch a Beekeeper Remove a Huge Swarm at Maine Medical Center
A swarm of honey bees looking for a new place to build a hive set up shop right outside the main entrance to Maine Medical Center this week, so a bee keeper was called in to take them away.
Photographer Charlie Berg documented the whole process of tying to entice the bees into moving into an empty hive in a Rubbermaid container, not exactly as easy feat. At one point the beekeeper actually knock them off with a stick while not wearing any protective gear. That's a brave man!
The hive has been removed and there should be no worries about bees nearby as you enter Maine Medical Center.
