Sudden Honey Bee Swarm

by | Apr 29, 2016 | Communications | 0 comments

Just a day in the life of a Luther.

I was helping my brother by taking some video of a few of Queen honey bee cells (He is breeding queens) when I noticed a whole lot of activity around his garage.

My brother is a beekeeper (among other things) and has a small Apiary in Ligonier, PA.  He sells honey every year and works hard to keep his colonies healthy and active.

One of his projects this year is to breed honey bee queens.

I myself am interested in the “Idea” of beekeeping, but my complete terror of bees is something that really holds be back from taking the plunge into the art.  I do however, really enjoy opportunities to take photos and videos of these amazing little insects.

Uhh… something is going on over there…

So as I am thoroughly enjoying the filming of my brother pointing out this queen cell and that queen cell, I just happen to glance over toward his garage.  It was, rather crowded with flying insects.

“Uhh… something is going on over there…”, I stammered.

So my brother, being the wicked cool beekeeper he is walks into the swarm of bees and starts talking to the camera about how awesome it is.

A little Viralness

Obviously after shooting this video we knew we wanted to put it on the Facebook page to see how many views we would get. Not to shabby.  It goes to show you that you never know when you will be in a position to capture some video or piece of content that has potential to go viral.

Always be prepared and always be alert!

 

P.S. Want to buy Queens or Honey, visit Luther Apiaries!
