A swarm of bees is a rare occurrence. When the bees lose their home, or feel they have to leave, they gather around their queen in a clump and await the return of scout bees who are looking for a new spot. An interesting fact is that the bees are at their most docile in a swarm as they have no home to protect.
Surprising but true.
