Thousands of bees swarmed a pickup truck in the parking lot of a Saskatoon Costco. • Beekeeper Van Sorensen was brought in to give the hive a new home. • Swarms of bees aren't uncommon and are actually a sign of a healthy and thriving hive, said Melissa Stonehouse, president of the Saskatoon Bee Club. • "It's the hive’s way of splitting off," she said. • Stonehouse said once a hive has reached capacity, the queen bee will leave the parent hive in search of a new home, taking half of the hive with her. • During the search, the queen bee has to rest, at which time a swarm will form. • (Video: Michelle Vilness/Facebook) @cbcsaskatoon #bees #swarm #saskatoon #hive #beekeeping #queenbee #trucks
