Why do honey bees swarm? Honey bees swarm mainly in the spring, but it can occur anytime in the summer as well. Swarming occurs so the honey bees can reproduce. The original hive splits into two or more hives, and one of the queens leaves to find a new home with half the bees in the hive. Most of the time, the swarms are very calm and focused on finding a new home.
